About Me

do no harm. listen well. be outside. be kind and helpful.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

gabriel: swimming, writing, restoring.

sweller: Phosphorescence glowing in the waves on the california coast at night with the stars out above. the big meteor shower in like 2004- big sky craziness. helping deliver babies. bathing new born babies. building trails in the woods. working at a hostel in new orleans and eating barbecue under a bridge during mardi gras. view of a grey whale swimming off into the sunset.
