Welcome to logn

Jason Healy's little corner of the internet.

Thanks for visiting my site! I got this domain way back when I graduated from college. It started out as a spot to keep all my geeky projects.

Please feel free to navigate the menus above for the major sections of the site, or read on for some recent blog postings.

I Wanna Live a Life Like That...

We're just back from Seth's second annual guitar recital. In the middle of this snowy day, only the most die-hard fans of all the performers were able to attend (read: parents and siblings).
