A pond inside Dumbarton Oaks in Washington, D.C.
We’ve been spending a lot of time walking around Georgetown. It’s a good way to process our thoughts and to brainstorm about what we want to do next.
We’ve been writing a little bit about the military, and we’ve been writing a lot about coffee. We were drinking it so often just to stay alert that when we got back from Afghanistan we decided we had to learn how to make it better. It was sort of a hobby, sort of an obsession. We’ve been capturing what we learned.
We’ve also been practicing our photography and taking pictures of spring and renewal. So many things are changing in the world right now, and so many things are changing in our own lives. Perhaps it always is this way, with the world constantly in flux. But right now, in our own experience, it seems like an inflection point.
Seth Godin had a blog post recently in which he asked “Will you choose to do it live?” It was all about risk, and scarcity, and imperfection.
This is us, as it happens. It isn’t perfect. But it’s real. And something about that feels more honest.
