Wake me up before you go go

July 23rd, 2021 I think that heaven can be a dangerous idea. Before I take you there, though, let’s talk about the benefits of believing in an everlasting life.

Change, or Die

June 16th, 2021 Working in a bar as long as I have, I’ve heard a lot of stories. Most of them about other human beings. Most of them some kind of drama or hardship or horror. Quite a few of them about people who didn’t make it. Some of the people just had bad luck,Continue reading “Change, or Die”

I think that I will always struggle to varying degrees from the pain that I’ve been through and theContinue reading “Permission to Breathe”

2020: A Lesson, A Curriculum, An Education

December 31st, 2020 It is fair to say that this year sucked. It is damn fair. And it is a truth that we will have wasted our time if we decide to learn nothing from it.

Happy Whatever You Celebrate Sale!!

November 25th, 2020 Hello, friends. I want to start this post by acknowledging how hard this year has been for so many people, myself included.
