I don’t mind getting older. Really I don’t. Mostly because I feel that as I’ve gotten older, I’ve been able to put behind me a lot of superficial worries and not get caught (as caught up?) in the things that don’t matter, to be able to focus on the things that do – love, happiness, […]


Warrior II

{Sharing a little more about what the first quarter of this year has been for me.} I can feel the first bead of sweat gathering between my eyes, sending a prickly sensation throughout my body. It’s like the annoying buzz of a mosquito by your ear – the one that you try to ignore but […]

Man. I had big plans this week. Plans to catch up on work, to write, to finally respond to all the thoughtful comments you all have left on my posts. I swear I read each and every one and they mean so much to me. I’ve just been having trouble finding myself in front of […]
