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”


December 24th, 2019 Okay (definition) Exclamation: used to express agreement or acceptance. Adjective: (of a person) in a satisfactory physical or mental state. Once a week, I spend some time with the most caring, compassionate, brilliant, clever and wise people I have ever met. They’ve taught (or re-taught) me almost every good thing I know;Continue reading “OK”

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”

Save Me

October 21st, 2019 You can’t save everyone. And, some days, it feels like you can’t save anyone. When you make it to the other side of certain hardships or experiences, you find yourself wanting to share how you did it in the hopes that you can help another human. That maybe you can prevent aContinue reading “Save Me”

Gossip, Girl

October 15th, 2019 Gossip is awful. I am also terribly guilty of it. I would never assume you are or have been, too, because that would be gossiping and I am no fool to these self-imposed tricks. One of the best tools I’ve learned in battling the deeply natural act of talking shit about oneContinue reading “Gossip, Girl”

Open Line

October 10th, 2019 Bad vibes in Minnesota right now. But I see good vibes online right now; post after post about mental health awareness, and the normalization of this kind of discussion is something I am passionately for. In fact: it deeply informs my work today. Here is my pitch for The Weirdos: this isContinue reading “Open Line”


September 24th, 2019 Whenever you make a decision, you have to balance logic and intuition. I mean, you don’t have to. But, usually, when you don’t is when you make a bad decision. Sometimes you look at all the facts and they add up, but something doesn’t feel right. And sometimes what you want toContinue reading “Believe”
