I adore gadgets and toys and all things electronic (I’m basically a 40-year-old teenager).For Christmas My wife bought me a DJI Phantom drone. (insert squeal!)
I have wanted one for a long time. I would love to be able to get images and video from places that my legs can’t carry me. The thought of hiking with the kids and seeing a drone over us, offering a different view sends me to the moon!
I wanted to make a quick video of my first Drone flight. I wish I could have flown it a few more times but Baltimore has been windy and or raining. So take a minute and check out my piloting skills. On a side note, I’m very thankful I didn’t crash it on it’s maiden voyage.
Lastly, I hope everyone had a great holiday season and a safe and happy new year! 2016 was such an adventure for me! looking back it was such a great year for creativity! I can only hope that 2017 allows me to continue to grow as a
designer, photographer, painter, sculptor… an artist : ) I hope where or whenever you read this it finds you in good health and great spirit!
Starting the first of the year my family and I will be participating in the 52 Hike Challenge. We already try to have a weekly adventure day but with the weather getting colder they will slowly stop as we bug in for the winter. I really like the idea of a challenge that will help push us through the cold parts of the season. I think it will be a good life lesson for the kids. Sometimes you have to push forward even when you don’t feel like it.
Without a hawk to hunt, I haven’t spent much time in the woods this fall except for our adventure days. Yesterday, I decided I had to get out on a trail somewhere, anywhere. It was like my mind needed to reconnect and recharge. I only hiked about 7 miles in total but I got to see a waterfall and hiked to the top of a rock formation called the King and Queen seat.
My favorite part of the day was meeting a couple from New Zealand and sitting with them on top of a rock and listening to their adventures and sharing some of their dark chocolate hot coco. After about 40 minutes we said farewell and they were off for their next adventure.
I wish I would of taken more pictures but oh well, there’s always next week.
Finally feeling better after a crummy head cold. 😷 I didn’t really have a ton of energy to do an adventure day but I had to jump on my lathe and make something.
I had a chunk or Yucatán rosewood I ordered from amazon. I figured since it wasn’t too big I could make a small bowl from it. It ended up about a 4 1/2″ bowl. The grain is very beautiful and took a mineral oil finish beautifully.
What do you guys think?
I would like to thank the person who created this award: Okoto enigma. You are an amazing and an inspiring blogger. This is really a great idea to introduce this award. It’s fun and helpful too!
This is my third nomination for this award. Thank you so much My Friend Deepika for the nomination. She is a a fantastic blogger! Her comments and posts are thoughtful and honest. My favorite thing about her blog is how many topics she can cover. Please visit her site you will love the inspirational and thought inspiring stories.
What the Award is about and why you should do this:
There are a lot of amazing blogs out there that haven’t been discovered, yet. And, most of these blogs deserve recognition. For that reason, I decided to create my own award; and nominate people who can also nominate others; and so on. This is one of the best ways to create a friendly community and build a link between bloggers in the blogosphere; as everyone gets nominated and they too can spread the fun by nominating more people for the award. I decided to call the award “Mystery Blogger Award.” Why? Because the meaning of my name, “Enigma” is “mystery.” So basically, it’s named after me; the creator. Plus, I think it’s cool because there are so many blogs that are still a mystery to us; and when we get to know them, it’s divine! And we find friends where we least expect.
WHAT IS MYSTERY BLOGGER AWARD?
“Mystery Blogger Award” is an award for amazing bloggers with ingenious posts. Their blog not only captivates; it inspires and motivates. They are one of the best out there, and they deserve every recognition they get. This award is also for bloggers who find fun and inspiration in blogging; and they do it with so much love and passion.

As for Nominations, whoever reads this post is nominated!
Tonight was such a fun night. I had a great dinner with my family then went into my workshop with the idea of finally doing something with a chunk of burl wood brought back from Maine. The burl was pretty small, but had some wild patterns. Because it was small I had time to make another bowl. It’s a rewarding feeling being covered in wood shavings or as I call them man glitter. ✨
I hope everyone had an awesomely amazing day!
I love the movie Horton hears a who. The idea of a microcosm living in a subatomic world. It’s made me dream about our earth and solar system existing on something like a ball of lint.
Maybe that’s why I love macro photography. It allows me to see something in a different way then I’m used to.
If you have a camera phone get something like an ollo clip and zoom into the unseen worlds of macro.
