Every December, I challenge myself to concentrate the harvest of photos I take during the calendar year—each year's more bountiful than the last's—into a dense 13-photo album.
I've just selected and published the photos from 2023. See them at photos.html.
In 2023, Summer and I were fortunate enough to go to France, Japan, and China.
I've never been a traveler. I bond with this style:
I spend most of the day psyching myself up to do one thing—visit a museum, perhaps—and the rest of the day recovering from the only event on my itinerary.

So it was not entirely surprising to discover this year that Summer and I enjoy spending 4–7 days in one city and dwelling, with at least half of those days planless, then going home.
I continue my interior design hobby in the background, but improvement comes slowly. I discovered Sweet Home 3D this year, which has helped me visualize options quickly. I've learned to not be picky about furniture visualizations.
We expect to move in 2024, so I have been playing around with ideas. I hope to share more later in the year.
