Amherst day

November 1st, 2015 · Comments Off on Amherst day

One of the best things about being back on the east coast is the ease with which we can get back to Amherst, less than 90 minutes away. We had planned to go into New York City for the day, but once we realized what else was going on that day, rather than brave the […]

40 Days until 40: Day 22, 1996

January 18th, 2015 · Comments Off on 40 Days until 40: Day 22, 1996

Sitting in my single in Morrow Dorm in the spring of 1996. I had spent the previous semester in the UK, and this somewhat less-than-desirable dorm was the place that had singles available for people like me, returning mid-year. This picture is loaded with little details; first, what in the world is that wall hanging? […]

40 Days until 40: Day 20, 1994

January 16th, 2015 · Comments Off on 40 Days until 40: Day 20, 1994

Sometime in the spring of freshman year at Amherst, I reached Peak Hair. Also, those glasses needed to go. I’m not sure where or when this photo was taken, or why those light leaks happened. I find it hard to believe I really felt like this was the look I was going for, but there […]

Little Jeff

November 12th, 2011 · Comments Off on Little Jeff

Once again, Grace accompanied us to the Amherst Association of Southern California’s gathering for the annual Amherst/Williams game. This time, it was downtown at the cavernous ESPNZone, which provided plenty of visual stimulation for Grace. She was suitably dressed as a little Lord Jeff, with purple pants, a frilly white shirt, and gray sweater. We […]

50 States: Massachusetts (6)

May 2nd, 2008 · 2 Comments

What to say about the Bay State? It’s the first place I lived after leaving home, and the state I’ve lived in the longest after Alaska (nine years between 1993 and 2005). From Amherst in the west to Cambridge in the east, I’ve enjoyed the beautiful foliage, the collegiate atmosphere, the wonderful back roads, the […]

Quick trip back in time

June 4th, 2007 · Comments Off on Quick trip back in time

It’s hard to believe it’s been ten years since leaving college, which means fourteen since we started, but so it is, and so it was time for our tenth class reunion. I took two days off work and headed to New York City to carpool up to Amherst together. I got into New York early […]

Third Tame’s a Charm

December 1st, 2004 · Comments Off on Third Tame’s a Charm

I don’t know what history will write for the Pixies after 2004… Maybe they’ll put out an album, not quite as good as their old stuff, and fade into uncomfortable oblivion. Or perhaps they’ll never play again. Whatever happens, I’m happy I’ll be able to look back on this tour and say I got my […]

Standing on the Corner with Wilco

October 5th, 2004 · Comments Off on Standing on the Corner with Wilco

That’s where Aimee and I found ourselves Sunday afternoon in Northampton, waiting to cross King Street and head into downtown. I was pleased to stand there and do nothing, as Aimee insisted on faking a phone call in order to distract herself from celebrity-proximity-embarassment. I didn’t do the unthinkable and actually talk to them, but […]

The Master Plan

November 20th, 2003 · Comments Off on The Master Plan

I attended a talk and tour last night at Shepley Bulfinch Richardson & Abbott about Amherst’s Residential Master Plan, which will shape the look of the campus over the next five or so years. The talk was set up by the Amherst Association of Boston, and was at the firm’s office downtown, just over from […]
