Vita Rara: A Life Uncommon

Wool Gathering

Sometimes you stumble upon something that takes you back in time. In past times this would frequently occur in an attic, or old closet that someone was cleaning out. For me this happens when I change computers. I just got a new laptop, and I'm moving into it, after migrating all of my files over.

In this process I happened on an old QuickTime movie I made with photos from the first year of having my Canon Digital Rebel. Take a look (10MB). I thought I had posted it on this site, but apparently I hadn't. This video covers Septmber 2003 to September 2004.

I look back at these photos and marvel at them. It was a formative time in my life. I had just left my partnership in an IT consulting firm, 5points.net. In the spring of 2003 I had purchased my 1999 BMW R1100RT. At the beginning of the video I'm setting off across the country to Torrey, UT, for a BMWST.com get together. During this year I started Vita Rara. At Vita Rara we created the MORI project. Sylva and I started dating on July 3, 2004.

It was an amazing year. Enjoy the photos as much as I enjoy the recollection of the amazing time they evoke.
