"Dear Diary, Love Lon Leary": The Photos & The Music

Lon Leary, drummer for Columbus, Ohio by way of Boone, NC's Swarming Branch and friend of the site, is a steward of purposeful small living. Equipped with an old cell phone camera or disposable, an '89 Toyota Van, and an eye for the painfully beautiful mundane, Lon captures the moments regularly undervalued and exemplifies a reason to slow down and observe. In advance of Swarming Branch's show in Charlotte, NC at Snug Harbor this Saturday, November 18th, Lon has gifted a photo gallery and playlist.

So with that, please enjoy "Dear Diary, Love Lon Leary."
