A photo of the Mission Mountains in western Montana taken at sunrise

Hey, my name is Mario, and I’m a writer and photographer living in western Montana.

This website operates under the philosophy that to truly understand one’s life, you have to attack it from many different angles. Thus, I’ve broken up this site into two main sections:

My Journal is my attempt at figuring out this thing called life. It’s very personal, and I can get very deep into my feelings, but that’s the only way I know how to write. It’s gone through a few changes over time as I’ve tried to figure it out, but I think I’ve settled on a weekly posting schedule. I try to post something every Sunday, with pictures and words that I hope you enjoy.

My Stream is for everything else. This, for lack of a better term, is my blog, my attempt at replacing social media with something I own and control. I post about things I’m interested in, notes about my days, and anything else that strikes my fancy.
