WHAT A YEAR!!!

2005 was a great year for me, as I developed spiritually, athletically, and professionally.

I had a lot of great opportunities to do different things this year, from teaching Acting at The University of Richmond and doing Shakespeare for Television to doing more voice-overs and commercials than in previous years. I also worked with some great people, and made a lot of new friends.

I also took my vows of refuge with Lama Norlha Rinpoche, and worked at the Buddhist practice of meditation with a little more diligence (although there is always room for improvement!!) and I watched my lovely wife Jennifer's amazing artistic dimension blossom into a million possibilities.


In addition, I have had a remarkably rewarding experience this year serving as a mentor for an incredibly sensitive and warm-hearted sixteen-year-old young man named Zac, who is a really cool kid in spite of the fact that he roots for the Yankees. The sky is the limit for this kid, and both Jennie and I love him dearly. I hope to watch him playing baseball this spring-- Keep those grades up, dude!!

This year also saw my return to the baseball diamond in the Virginia baseball congress, where I batted like .228 or something but I finished strong and I'm amped to try it again this spring!!
I also started a friendship with Jarvis Masters, a Buddhist practicioner in San Quentin whose literary works I have read and deeply admire.

My New year's resolution is simply to try and be myself-- To not be afraid to reach out and try something new, and to work a little harder every day on those things that I enjoy, whether it be acting, writing, working out or hitting in the cage.

The most profound thing that I read all year has become my new mantra:

"If you think you're too small to have an impact, try going to bed with a mosquito in the room."
-Anita Koddick

Here are some images from 2005.

"Ladies and Gentlemen-- Now batting-- Don Knotts!!"

This picture is frickin' sweet.



Reggie runs the household, basically. We're HIS pets.

Big Papi carried the 2005 Red Sox on his back all year long.

Elliott lobbies for a new ballpark in Downtown Richmond .


I shaved my head in January of 2005-- I look like the lead singer of Midnight Oil.


Jen's Photography and paintings are remarkable.

Big Suprise-- The Pats did it AGAIN!!

Elliott and Petey-- moments before I pull out my lightsaber, cut Elliott open and climb in for warmth.

Jarvis Masters has become a pen pal of mine.

Thrown out at second on a steal attempt *Cough*-bullshit--*Cough.
(The Indians get all the calls, man...)

Jennifer is the most beautiful woman I have ever seen... she majored in DAMN! at VCU.

Zac is headed in the right direction.

PEACE TO ALL BEINGS, AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
