Mississippi Ice Photos

  As seen on www.WJON.com. These photographs were taken around 5pm on March 17.  By midnight that evening the ice sheet, which was about a half-mile long,  had slipped past the bridge footings. (Update: The truth is, this was a fairly dangerous photo-shoot. I was in the midst of these icy waters and perched on this ice ledge when I realized that if the ice were to snap forward through the bridge footings, all of the pressure of a half-mile long ice flow could spring  forward at a speed that might overcome my kayak…

Thankyou…

Thankyou Paper Collector Art Gallery and everyone who came to the exhibit tonight. It was a lot of fun!  I really appreciated meeting the fun people who came to see my work, and the storys we shared while studying the photos that overlook our great city. The experience was very cool. Thanks again, Steve

Art Crawl

ART CRAWL Homepage >>> http://www.artcrawlstcloud.com/home Yes, you found the message. Good job 🙂 I’ll try to keep this simple. We can do anything under the sun from errands, to your favorite restaurant or anything you can think of. I have taxi and all expenses covered for the day and if anyone has issue than we simply keep it on the DL which I absolutely support and highly recommend until you have the information that I must get to you. This needs only be a ONE TIME thing. It is information only to empower you and it is absolutely vital it is shared. We can decide that day that there is no additional business to cover and we move on. I can’t help but believe that this can be a very happy and non-stressful day for you… It is more than just about the $6,000 still on the table… which would have ended your 13 month situation immediately and for good. That alone is worth a converstation. Hmmm…Star Wars (remember you didn’t like Pacific Rim at first either…) and for me to ask anyone to go is unprecedented.  The last Star Wars movie I went to was “The Empire Strikes Back” in 1997 at the Chinese Theater in Hollywood. I have turned down any and all requests from friends and family to see any of the new Star Wars movies for over two decades. This would certainly be a special occasion. Whether or not we go to the movie, it is encouraged that we have this meeting asap. People will try to stop you. That goes without saying. You becoming un-homeless would be a huge blow to some people and that is very real. Pete’s Place is just a few doors down if you don’t want to make a production of it. Sawatdee is a few blocks away. This is not a date… and not saying I wouldn’t have ever considered dating you. Neither of us was single. I think that I was intending to make your care, comfort and happiness my priority in life…indefinitely, well…that’s not a normal guy thing to give that much…and be intelligent to boot. I was very selfish, you gave me purpose. I told you about the book. I’ve been planning to write it long before I met you. It doesn’t just cover the horrific events of the last three years of my life, it will also include highlights and accomplishments of which there are many. It will be instrongly opinionated, suspenseful and philosophical. I change names of course. The journey we experienced together is incredibly important to the narrative…it was a very intense and dangerous struggle for justice and redemption. It is where a light clearly shows in the fight for life. It is perhaps the greatest thing I have ever done for anyone in my life, and for perhaps the most courageous and faithful person I have been so proud to know. There remains an incredible amount to this story you seem to have … Continue reading

Flight Flash Media Content Link

             A special thanks to Modern Steel Construction magazine for including a link to the film Desoto Bridge to Granite City Crossing on the home page of their March 2010 issue. The film posted on Youtube last October will surpass 500 views this week. Congratulations to our home town of St.Cloud, Mn and the Granite City Crossing bridge project for the national recognition in this issue!  http://www.modernsteel.com/SteelInTheNews/?p=318  If you missed the link in early March, you can go straight to the video on YouTube by clicking on this link >>> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FVLuIwnPORM Simber Read please with your calm eye…remember your Sleepy Bunny. Honey, Do you remember as we began drive to your parents for Christmas you asked me a question, “Why did you just call me Melissa?” Do you remember what it meant for you to say that? During this note eventually I want you to be able to understand that maybe the sum of why all of this is happening is to make un indellible mark of your esteem and personal empowerement. Someone made some pretty extreme sacrifices in a great and blinding storm to make sure you were safe and never abandoned throughout this mystery of why exactly you vanished. I had very good reason to be fearful for you dear. Look at how they’ve broken your life now and you could be completely out of money before you know it. Remember how the only time you ever were ever able to climb out of debt again was when we were together. We were very blessed with our combined positive energy. I don’t know what to say àbout the “letter” you posted at the bottom of the attack video. You need to know something very real first, it is on extremely rare occasion I see or hear your words. I do not watch your videos. If you assume I have been following you i haven’t. People do not pass messages or warnings from you to me. Do you realize how incredibly unfair it is to attack and characterize me like you do when I don’t have a clue what’s happening to you…remember an important part of the equation is always communication. Dear, and then to come suddenly face to face with what you wrote about me this week, how can I possibly conclude anything other than what I’ve said all along? It’s just like the weird note you sent me a year and a half ago…there’s no reality in what you write…how do I take it seriously…someone is in your head very very obviously. It is not your fault and I forgive you. How are either of us to blame for the confusion they caused deliberately to hurt our relationship to steal from you…far more than just money. So babe, what do you really want? Its not worth the risk for me to attempt to contact you….you’ve already been reminded 100 …or 600 times that you are empowered to resolve this with me. Need I remind you that this has been a … Continue reading
