One From The Files: Monkey Island

With travel (and its myriad preparations) so forefrontal on my mind I’m actually glad my gig in The ‘Gundo is coming to a close today… the better for me to actually get ready to go instead of just thinking about it.

But beyond procrastinating I’m also guilty of looking back at the past places my love Susan and I have been this last couple years. In doing so I wanted to share the following image or a red colobus mother  with infant in the Jozani National Forest of Zanzibar, one of the thousands we took on our honeymoon in Africa in 2005 (click to enlarge):


And if I somehow find the time before I go, I’ll finally upload the pix, video and story I wrote about our Rwanda excursion that was passed on by the L.A. Times  as well as several travel magazines.

Will Campbell arrived in town via the maternity ward at Good Sam Hospital way back in OneNineSixFour and has never stopped calling Los Angeles home. Presently he lives in Silver Lake with his wife Susan, their cat Rocky, dogs Terra and Hazel, and a red-eared slider turtle named Mater. Blogging since 2001, Will's web endeavors extend back to 1995 with, a comprehensive theater site that was well received but ever-short on capital (or a business model). The pinnacle of his online success (which speaks volumes) arrived in 1997, when much to his surprise, a hobby site he'd built called VisuaL.A. was named "best website" in Los Angeles magazine's annual "Best of L.A." issue. He enjoys experiencing (and writing about) pretty much anything creative, explorational and/or adventurous, loves his ebike, is a better tennis player than he is horr golfer, and a lover of all creatures great and small -- emphasis on "all."
