It’s the first newsletter of the new year, and I’ve got several cool things to share with you.

I’m still struggling to adjust back to normal life after the swirling nothingness that is the week between Christmas and New Year’s. We didn’t do much at our house besides reading, listening to new vinyl, and eating way more snacks than we should have.

The image, a result of persistent effort over six years and thwarted by bad weather five times, finally succeeded under perfect conditions. This stunning shot also highlights the ‘da Vinci glow’ – Earthlight illuminating the moon’s surface, creating a captivating and ethereal scene.
