"There is a place in the soul that neither time, nor space, nor no created things can touch."
- Meister Eckhart

"Your identity is not equivalent to your biography and there is a place in you where you have never been wounded, where there is still a sureness in you, where there's a seamlessness in you and where there is confidence and tranquility in you. The intention of prayer and spirituality and love is now and again to visit that inner kind of sanctuary."
- John O'Donohue on OnBeing with Krista Tippett

"Stress is a perverted relationship to time, so rather than being a subject of your own time, you have become its target and victim."
- John O'Donohue

Unchronicled Released

Prof. Vostrum and I have released the first set of photographs from our residency in Wyoming today!
Hope you enjoy the fruits of our labors. 

If you are just tuning in, Vostrum (I'm just going to call Caitlin by her alter ego) and I shot our first set of UE photographs along the North Californian coast last spring. On a road trip up north, we started to dream up two characters who'd gone rouge from an expedition and set out on their own to solve a relentless mystery. Our photographs follow these two very different female explorers through their endless search. Last fall we were awarded residency with Jentel Foundation in Wyoming. We started a fundraiser for the art project and with a little love from friends and family, were able to spend a month this spring traveling all over the beautiful state of Wyoming, setting up and shooting photographs, developing this concept and finally working on the initial plans for our book. We've released the first set of photographs on our website -

Thanks for the support and hope you enjoy!

And back again

I started this sun-bleached map after my first cross-country trip out to California. My uncle got this detailed county map for me from a map store on Pico that sadly went out of business years ago. He had one on his wall and as a welcome to Los Angeles, got me started on my own. Since then I've crossed the country twice more and explored the recesses of the incredible West (doesn't hurt that the counties are the size of eastern states.) Years ago, I never imagined getting up to Wyoming and Montana or South Dakota, much less calling them home for a little while. The past few months have felt like a dream. I guess coloring in the little blocks is a way to make it seem real.

i102fly for real!

This was a few weeks back, but whatever. My friend Olga is one of the most quality people I know, add to that fact, she flies planes which pretty much makes her a superwoman. I got to go up with her as she accompanied a Spanish guy getting his flight hours.

Flight plans and maps. Charted destination: the desert no San Luis Obispo or Santa Maria no San Luis. Kind of amazed how easy it is to switch up the route as we sit here on the couch in the Van Nuys Airport office a gigantic tub of pretzels passed between us.

The plane is finally ready. Olga supervises the checks. Pol fills out the paper work. We cuddle up in the cockpit...

.. all 2 square feet of it.

me super excited to take off.

My first time in a cessna and I have to say it was pretty intense when we took off. I got real butterflies as we rattled this tiny thing down the runway, the end of the airport fast approaching and this itty little box starting to hover off the ground. And as we ascended the first hundred feet or so, it felt like we could drop off any second. flight


...cockpit group photo. 
Relaxing and doing no work back there, while the pilots drop us down into  Santa Maria.

This is a climbing location that I frequent from the sky! Stoney Point. This will tell you all you need to know about this legendary location.  

Highlight as we come in high - Olga says, "Don't worry these things drop like a sack of potatoes!" Great confidence as we come down for the landing.

So where are we going next?
