It was a pleasure to host at the Kaiser Permanente Center for Total Health (@KPTotalHealth) with Rex Miller (@mRexMiller) and friends from Delos (@DelosLiving). I especially appreciate Rex’s approach to these gatherings – everything is open source, just like this blog.
People want to live and work in a healthy environment. People like me want to know what works to make it that way. Rex introduced me to this website, which helps in the critical analysis of what works…
This week’s photograph is from a collection that’s published in this post on Washington, DC’s Urban Turf (@UrbanTurf_DC) blog: Logan Circle: A Tale of Two Eras.
It’s a great story about the renaissance of a part of our nation’s capital that was destroyed multiple times, neglected, and now experiencing a renaissance. It’s the neighborhood I am a part of and is integrated with dozens of artifacts of the work of great people who led in a world that didn’t them to (actually, the world didn’t want them to exist, much less lead).
It was another interesting year of photography. Below is a calendar of the most interesting (as deemed by Flickr.com’s automation) photos for each month, and below that a few more picks.

Last year I wrote a review of the Apple Watch Series 1 as a commentary on the transition from one wearable (Google Glass) to another (see: Apple Watch Review, by a former Google Glass Explorer )
That’s all past now; this is a review and thoughts on the new Apple Watch Nike+ (Series 2) and associated ideas on fitness tracking and heart rate variability (HRV).
The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (@HolocaustMuseum), opened in 1993, recently changed its no photography policy, and so, with a very good light sensitive camera, I went to take photographs, which I’m sharing (see below).
I’ve been several times before, and each time I learn and reflect more. In the intervening period of this visit, I’ve also been to Yad Vashem in Jerusalem and Beit Hatfutsot in Tel Aviv.
This time, I thought about behavior change techniques, effectively used, to deny diverse people control of their destiny, and then their lives.
Thanks UrbanTurf (@UrbanTurf_DC), for publishing a series of photos of the H Street NE Corridor in Washington, DC, as part of a piece on the neighborhood, linked above.
In my previous post about this series, I touched on some of the history of H Street, NE. Here’s a little bit more:
