Here's to hoping the portraits I take in 2009 are better than the ones I took in 2008. Carter started me off on the right foot, that's for sure. I definitely needed a ladder for this one. This kid was like nine feet tall. Which is Barker exaggeration terms means he is actually about a foot and a half -- almost two feet -- taller than me.

All day, all I've wanted to do was take a nap. Slept like hell last night. The wind was howling to no end. We clocked 77 mph in parts of the city. Kept Moco up growling all night as the wind whipped shadows around the yard, casting strange shapes into my bedroom.
While you were sleeping, you tossed, you turned
You rolled your eyes as the world turned
The heavens fell, the Earth quaked
I thought you must be, but you weren't awake

i got a long way to travel
with a heaviness taking hold
it takes a long night when you unravel at home
don't know that she knows what it is she's doing
don't know that she knows we're throwing it all away
now tell me how you think we're gonna make it through this
