to notice rest

Because I have a garden and a dog, I spend my first waking hour outside. Checking the fruit, watering the garden, kicking the ball to Wendell. The time extends and doubles on itself on the weekends, but it's still very much a large part of my weekday mornings too, before heading to work. In one...

my own roaring twenties

Things around here can get awful heady, am I right? I can write a serious game, but it doesn't truly reflect the entirety of my life (On another note: we all know now that blogs don't do this, right...? I'm gonna go ahead and hope that's common knowledge by now.). Anyway, my daily life is a pinch...

tracing my year

I'm not someone who experiences something, then forgets it. Especially when it comes to whatever is entertaining, moving, or influencing me. This includes the music that I listen to, the books that I read, the concepts or ideas that inhabit my mind, anything. I think it's partly why I'm a writer-- because everything has meaning to...

Because I have a garden and a dog, I spend my first waking hour outside. Checking the fruit, watering the garden, kicking the ball to Wendell. The time extends and doubles on itself on the weekends, but it's still very much a large part of my weekday mornings too, before heading to work. In one morning, it's really nothing remarkable. Morning after morning though, it seems to have become something more....

I'm gonna go ahead and hope that's common knowledge by now.). Anyway, my daily life is a pinch more ridiculous and a smidgeon less dreary than it may seem here. Because here's the...

a life that’s rich, and growing richer

[Heads up, folks. This is honest. And may not cast me in the best light. You decide. I do think though, that these feelings and concerns over one's worth and usefulness aren't exclusive to me, if we're all being completely honest. (Right?!) So I'm sharing. That's why. Because I don't think I'm the only one.] If you haven't noticed, there's been a whole let less writing happening on this corner...

This includes the music that I listen to, the books that I read, the concepts or ideas that inhabit my mind, anything. I think it's partly why I'm a writer-- because everything has meaning to me, or is somehow connected to a greater and larger narrative. I see these connections...

sounds of the kitchen

Lately, I've been thinking about my family's life and traditions as an outsider. Meaning, do I understand and appreciate the traditions and quirks of this life that we live together? Can I recognize that which is in my own family life that is special and unique-- worthy of recognition and gratitude? It's easy to pass it all by, go through the motions, act like it's all normal. Then, one day last week,...
