greetings from far west texas

I took this photo two nights ago. Route 90, looking East, midway between the small towns of Alpine and Marfa. That’s Cathedral Mountain there on the right, which is about 12 miles South of Alpine.

If you drive down this stretch of road after dark on a clear night, if you look to the South there’s a good chance you’ll see the Marfa Lights in the distance. I’ve seen them many times.

I came out here on vacation, thinking I’d stay two weeks. Two years later and I still haven’t left…

UPDATE: Lloyd Davis, a blogging buddy of mine from my London days, took  a train from Austin to LA, after attending SXSW. En route the train stopped in Alpine. He took some photos. Sadly I was out of town that day, but it’s neat to think an old friend from London randomly visiting here…

Hugh MacLeod is a genius.  Genius.

Seth Godin
Best Selling Author

His work acknowledges the absurdity of workaday life, while also encouraging employees to respond with passion, creativity, and non-conformity...   MacLeod’s work is undeniably an improvement over the office schlock of yore. At its best, it’s more honest, and more cognizant of the entrepreneurial psyche, while still retaining some idealism.

Last year my State of the College address was 76 slides loaded with data. This year it was 14 cartoons that were substantially more memorable.

"There are only two daily newsletters that I look forward to opening and reading every time they show up to my inbox: Seth Godin's and gapingvoid."

CEO, Zappos

In moments of indecision I glance at the wall [to Hugh's work] for guidance.
