The Golden Bird

This installment of my church fathers paraphrases comes from St. John Chrysostom. St. John was born in Antioch around A.D 347. In his early life he was engaged in classical studies, but the influence of the bishop Meletius caused him to turn to the ascetic and religious life. He began as a lector in Antioch,…

Design: MAC Track Book

This is the cover and chapter divider page(s) I created for the forthcoming MAC Track training book. Each of the different chapters utilizes a different color to distinguish them from each other. The picture I used was kind of random, and is actually of a park bench, but for some reason the composition and contrast…

Photography: Megan

Yesterday Megan and I headed downtown to do a little bit of location scouting for a photo shoot later today. Late spring’s heat was upon us in all its fury, with nary a cloud to assuage its fire. Nevertheless, it was still a lovely day, and we got a few good photos out of the…

The Way to My Heart

The way to my heart is paved with black beans and a gooey four cheese blend. Megan made some quesadillas and a black bean corn salad which were both quite amazing. But don’t take my word for it- visit her blog, get the recipe and make it for yourself!
