Crazy Moon

Lately when my son goes to bed he has to turn the stars on. Of course he has the turtle star projector, which you must go buy right this very minute. Sometimes, when he has a surfeit of energy left from the day he turns it on, and jumps on the bed shaking it back […]

A tiny train ride through magical land (Canada)

Lakes the size of oceans, totems that tower above the tracks, leaves that change colors, fall to the ground and block out the sun.

My son’s favorite toy: a balloon

One of the coolest things about being a dad is re-discovery. As my sonopens doors, and windows and garden gates and finds treasures that are new to him, I re-discover treasures I had left in a safe place and eventually forgotten.

Dad Gadgets: The Nikon AW100 Waterproof Camera

One thing that is important to me here at The Gizzard Stone is taking pictures. I take a lot of photos with my crappy smartphone because it is always in my pocket, and sometimes has a battery charge.
