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”

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”

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”

The Grind

May 17th, 2021 None of us asked to be here. What I mean by that is: never in human history did any of us specifically request to be born. Keep this in mind for a minute. As we reassess what life was, what it’s been over the last year and what it’s going to lookContinue reading “The Grind”

Legos on a Loop

April 15th, 2021 This is going to be a loaded post. I give you this warning ahead of time as a courtesy: if you’re having a nice day, just scrolling along, having funsies, I encourage you to continue on ahead unimpeded. Have a good one. If you’re still here: let’s do this. There is aContinue reading “Legos on a Loop”

Famous Last Blurbs

March 15th, 2021 This is going to be the last substantial post I make for a while, because this is the last post that’s going to make it in the book. It’s weird because some of you will read these words on a screen and some of you will read them on paper, and thisContinue reading “Famous Last Blurbs”

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. So, with that in mind, here is some of what I learned. – I learned not only is tomorrowContinue reading “2020: A Lesson, A Curriculum, An Education”

America Hearts Criminals

December 18th, 2020 America loves criminals — as long as they have the right color skin and their subjective ideals align. This post has been a long time coming, but better late than never. I’ve heard, too many times, this era being compared to prohibition. Besides being an absolutely baseless and embarrassing comparison, it remindedContinue reading “America Hearts Criminals”

I Can Be Wrong, Too

May 6th, 2020 I think it’s good to admit when we are wrong about something. So, allow me to do so. I just watched one of those videos that exposes the “truth” about what’s “really” going on out there. It made some dubious claims, the people involved were mysterious themselves, but it made a fewContinue reading “I Can Be Wrong, Too”
