This is the personal blog of Elias Howe. I am from rural New Hampshire. I graduated from Phillips Academy Andover and Amherst College. I have had a haircut and a shower since this picture was taken. I drink too much coffee. I sometimes read and write, but these are mostly coping mechanisms to help me deal with the seeming eternity until the next time I get to hike, fish, ski, or ride my mountain bike.
