You’ll believe a man can… be absolutely anything, and that is the most inspiring thing of all.

October 13th, 2021 I love it when something happens in the comic book world that reverberates in the real one. Especially when the reactions to said news go right ahead and prove the point being made in the first place. Of course, I’m talking about my homeboy Jon Kent, the new Superman, coming out asContinue reading “You’ll believe a man can… be absolutely anything, and that is the most inspiring thing of all.”

Just a Poor Boy

October 11th, 2021 Galileo was more than a line in a Queen song. In the early 1600’s, he and his contemporary Giordano Bruno were the kind of history that certain people would prefer we not remember. You see, for a long time, it was common knowledge that the entire universe revolved around Earth. That’s whatContinue reading “Just a Poor Boy”

Softer Ways

October 7th, 2020 It’s rough out there. I just wanted to share some affirmations with you that help me when I remember to stop, take a breath, and think about them. Which I wish I did more, but it’s really rough out there, and I’m spreading myself as thin as I can, trying to keepContinue reading “Softer Ways”

Trash

September 13, 2021 I’m not sure how to talk about anything that’s going on in the world anymore, so let’s just discuss littering. Generally speaking, one discarded candy wrapper isn’t going to destroy the planet or any one individual’s worldview. And I think the person who drops that single piece of trash feels the sameContinue reading “Trash”

What Are You Trying To Say?

September 1st, 2021 Let’s talk about words. Specifically, the kind we use to describe people or things we think are dumb or just plain weird. You know the words. We were talking yesterday about a situation that’s all too familar: what do you do when somebody says something that’s uncomfortable for you without seeming likeContinue reading “What Are You Trying To Say?”

A Million Tiny Balls

August 19th, 2021 I’ve been seeing a lot of people lately sharing insights about how we should be gentle with ourselves. That the phrase “unprecedented times” has never applied to more unprecedented times. That the modern world has pushed, pulled, squished and smooshed us in every emotional and psychological way possible. I couldn’t agree more.Continue reading “A Million Tiny Balls”

HOT DOG

August 17th, 2021 Imagine I am holding a hot dog. I set the hot dog on the table between us, and I pull out a ruler. From one end to the other, the hot dog measures 6 inches long. “As you can clearly see and I have accurately measured, this hot dog is 6 inchesContinue reading “HOT DOG”

The Universe Is Bigger Than God

August 16th, 2021 I get asked regularly about why I don’t believe in a capital-G God, mostly by people who are genuinely curious or just want a different point of view on things. I realize that there may be value in putting these words out into the world, to validate them and maybe other peopleContinue reading “The Universe Is Bigger Than God”

Live Free or Drive Hard

August 4th, 2021 Hi. Today I would like to talk to you about seatbelts. Even if you wear a seatbelt, you can die if you get in a car accident. So, please: stop wearing seatbelts, because my anecdotal evidence, my opinion, is more true than what Big Automobile and car safety professionals will ever tellContinue reading “Live Free or Drive Hard”

Party On

August 2nd, 2021 Though I am sober, it is important that I party. Let me tell you P-A-R-T-why. For a long time, my life was unmanageable. “Unmanagable” is a terribly nice way to say “completely f—ed up.” I believe that it continued like that for a variety of reasons, some of them complex, but someContinue reading “Party On”
