Something Different

I don’t normally do this, but today I am going to write my “Morning Pages” on here. Publicly. It started out as I went to the coffee shop to do some editing freelance work and didn’t bring a journal to write. These are usually my private thoughts, two pages a day (though I’ve been slacking…

California

  For most of my adult life I felt like, eventually, I would end up living in California. At least for a while. Well, here I am. And what a circuitous path it has taken to get here! Short recap: Lived in Atlanta for 10 years. Felt blah. Realized I wasn’t growing. Called my bro…

Perhaps You’re Not as Far as You Think

  I’ve been struggling lately. It’s my age-old nemesis of not having enough money. It’s a sad, boring story that has become my life: on auto-repeat. Insert yawn here. (And it was just made worse hearing a good friend tell me how his teenage son is making $2,000/mo., whilst in high school, with an online yard-cleaning…

The Woman Who Wasn’t Afraid of Punctuation

  I’ve always wanted to date a French woman. The accent… I can just stop there, right?   Well, today was my lucky day. Her hair was thick and wavy, and black, like fertile soil. With big, blue eyes and the long, elegant fingers of a pianist, or perhaps a cello player. It was a…
