Natural gas explosions really aren't that cool. No one was killed, but a lot of people got hurt. Architects need to write CALL BEFORE YOU DIG! on your drawings and double the font size! This new building for restoration hardware is off to a really bad start.

My first flat tire of my bike trip this summer. It was in Tennessee around mile 760 after I had ridden 7 miles in the completely wrong direction. Looks like a yard sale.

Good thing I slept late and skipped that 9:30am yoga class. There was a natural gas explosion at NW 23rd and Glisan. My building shook and I thought it was an earthquake. Molls and I walk through here everyday on our morning walk. Hope everyone is ok. ??

The little dog loves to sleep on my yoga mat.

The ability to execute is 10 times more valuable then being a great designer! Stop worrying so much about design and focus on the execution. @gooddsgnadvice

You're not allowed to have a successful architecture career unless you volunteer. Volunteering in a way that involves giving your time and undivided attention to people who need it. Making a financial contribution isn't enough and besides your time and attention is significantly more valuable. Why should the universe support you and your career, if you aren't doing your part?? You'll always be to busy. If you live in Oregon, then help by volunteering for Architects in Schools. If you live elsewhere, then find another organization worthy of receiving your time and attention. #ncarb #americaninstituteofarchitects #ilookup #architectexam #architecturestudent #architecturefirm #afohonoredcitizen #architectsinschools
