Care Bears

February 10th, 2020 There are those who care more about sharing their opinions than they care about the people who read them. I know this isn’t a revelation, but it is for me. My heart has been broken by people as of late (see: my post last week about removing unkind folks from my internetContinue reading “Care Bears”


January 31st, 2020 I see clouds. A lot of them. I see them literally; people keep telling me the reason January has felt so long is because we haven’t seen the sun. And I see other kinds of clouds, too; a news story on the rise of suicides last night, more and more people inContinue reading “Waterwatereverywhere”

Be Here

January 14th, 2020 If there is any good in my life right now, any light coming from the holes I have poked in my jar, I have to accept that exactly everything that has happened so far had to happen for that good to exist. And this is how I can relax my regret andContinue reading “Be Here”

Big Fish & Potted Plants

January 2nd, 2020 I’ve had two ideas in my head all day: The concept that fish only grow to the size of their tanks. And the phrase, “Bloom where you’re planted” (which I saw last night on Instagram). So first, the fish thing: I was thinking of how it applied to people who are consideredContinue reading “Big Fish & Potted Plants”

Two Years

December 9th, 2019 Two years. It’s been two years today since I had my last drink. Fun fact: that last drink was a small bottle of Sauvignon Blanc that I had sitting in my trunk; it was the last bottle of booze I had left. I drank it so fast I only tasted it afterword,Continue reading “Two Years”

Believe In Me Like I Believe In You

December 5th, 2019 What would you do if a complete stranger walked up to you and told you where you’re going to be two years from now? He’s not guessing. He knows. He tells you that two years from now, you will be happier. He tells you that sights are going to be brighter, tastesContinue reading “Believe In Me Like I Believe In You”

Scaredy Cat

November 16th, 2019 I’m terrified, you guys. If you’ve heard me talk at all about what’s next for me, you know that I’m collecting all the issues of The Weirdos, coloring them and releasing it as a Collector’s Edition graphic novel next year. And I’m petrified to try to really get started. I’ve been puttingContinue reading “Scaredy Cat”

Be Here Now

November 6th, 2019 There will always be people there to remind you of who and what you used to be. Someone who, instead of celebrating your achievements of the moment, will tell you how you would have previously failed. Someone who will mention how you used to act as opposed to how you’re behaving rightContinue reading “Be Here Now”
