hobbes2485 Heavy rains and winds swept through NW Ohio tonight and as they diminished, I decided to walk uptown and buy some shaving cream. (I try to walk everywhere I can). After a half mile, I took a right instead of a left and quickly proceeded to the park. I stood in the middle of the river, as the color of the sky changed. I imagined a woman standing on this rock with a flowing white dress as her hair gently swayed aimlessly through the wind. I thought, "Man, that would be quite a shot." Then a bug flew in my mouth and I walked home alone.

I guess it was worth the torture of my co-workers repeatedly saying "Hey, that 13yr old called and wants his mustache back", all day tomorrow. #howtheshothappened

hobbes2485 Meet Aevi. She's a Shiba Inu and lost her sight to a rare case of glaucoma. She had to make her way to Columbus to have the procedure. Her owners were so gracious enough to allow me to take a photo. We spoke briefly and they told me that people usually comment on how happy she is but when they notice that she no longer has eyes, they tend to say "I'm so sorry". This tends to bother them because Aevi loves life and has so much happiness despite of her condition. It hasn't been easy after the countless treatments but as they mentioned, "she's family" and "we love her." There is no pain or suffering. I wanted to post this in honor of #nationaladoptionweekend which is this weekend hosted by @petsmart. Before we parted ways, they said that some day they'd strongly consider adopting another blind dog in the future after experiencing what they've gone through. It's very important that every animal that needs loved, gets loved. I couldn't agree more.

hobbes2485 Pay every and all attention to the "man" behind the curtain. That's a dreamer, a wanderer. I want to live each day wondering what can be and making that a reality. I want to live my life knowing that the world is bigger than I'd imagine. Dreamers are filled with patience and passion. I'm a dreamer. Forever. 2w

hobbes2485 Ohio weather has gone from shorts to scarves - bright to blah. I've been laying inside dreaming of road trips to be. Remembering that roads can be winding and not just Ohio right angles. Thankfully, my friend @_krsmith let me visit this through her great photo as my subtle touches brought me back to my days of travel. Mostly alone, mostly happy - but boy do I need more of these days and many more friends in life. Moments need to be shared.
Thank you, Renee.

Ps. Go Cavs.

hobbes2485 Our weather in Ohio has been so brutal in the winter the past few years. As an igers community we tend to get together during the rough months but as the weather breaks and finally allows us to gather together, we tend to forget about capturing moments and we grasp them. These are the moments we deserve. These are the days that make us smile. 2w

hobbes2485 Keep close to Nature's heart... and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.

hobbes2485 @toms has donated 62,108 pairs of shoes. (Make that 62,109) They will donate a pair of shoes to a child in need if you post a photo of your bare feet. You have until 5/21. You know you have some pics, so post those stinkers. If you don't and you have this weird thing for feet, today is strangely your day.
I risked Toledo, Ohio water to give a pair, why won't you.. As "sketchy" as our water can be, the Maumee River is my favorite place as the weather warms and the water lowers. Literally being on the river reminds me of home. #withoutshoes

hobbes2485 The local hipster kids who loiter the uptown businesses in my hometown said an Instagram comment is the new like. Is this true?
These past few mornings have been incredible. I'm loving the cool morning air and the early sunrise. It's the perfect storm towards getting out of bed and exploring the spring mornings.
