“Life is always going to be hooking you…When I really get hooked and I’m starting to get worked up… I might say to myself, “If I follow this, what will be the result? The habituation of strengthening this pattern. What will be the result? What will be happening to me in a year’s time? In two years time? This pain I’m trying to get away from will be more.”   –  Pema Chodron


Leaping about St.Petes never looked so good

Messing with the KGB? Lucky if they are alive on New Years

Consider the past year of Russian plane disasters

Last week we saw Da Vinci, this week its Dogs in Gas Masks

A monthly Event

Dan was our photographer for the day, but we were running so fast, he almost didn’t catch us on camera


Obviously we were confused thinking it was a ‘Jump 10K’ not run…



‘Flying Gazelle’ ninja move.  That is how its done.  Young Grasshopper(s) take note.



Dan finally told us we were supposed to be running. Clearly, we didn’t listen.



The Agony…


…and the Ecstasy of crossing the finish line!


The 10k ended at the Hermitage Museum Court Yard.


Очень серьезные!


We pause to think about being really really ridiculously good looking while sipping a pint.


Flea Market Posing!

November 11, 2011

Fela Market day, held at a faux beach in the center of a warehouse park, was a combination of exhibition, lecture, tasty beer, odd accessories and cool cats posing for snaps.

Table of the dictators.  Errr, presidents.

Being an egomaniac requires wicked posing skills.

With great age comes great facial hair.
