Update: British Columbia, Vancouver, E. Washington, East Bay and 4/4 on Amtrak

Dear Readers & Friends, It has been a long time–too long–so let me make up for it a bit with this post. One of the reasons, but definitely not the only reason, I’ve been M.I.A. is because I’ve been traveling. I went to the Pacific NW, and guess what–without my laptop!!! This was incredibly freeing,…

The Girl w/ Cat Breath

  It was our second date–but more of a friend date. I didn’t feel a ton of chemistry on our first date, but it was fun, and she was interesting and out-of-the-box, and totally irreverent, so we kept in touch with the intention of doing artsy/creative things together.   It took a few weeks, but…

When Your Fate Hangs in the Balance

  I’m talking about the decision to get married. I would venture to say that it’s the most important decision of our lives. And though we might say it’s reversible, its consequences may not be.   Maybe I’m being dramatic. Or am I?   Marriage is the default position of our culture. It’s what little girls are…

The Most Difficult of Things

  is not marriage or parenting or learning to sew.   not programming or finals or burying your in-law.   What is most difficult is living.   Living without pretending, that is. And what are we pretending, you ask?   We pretend that our actions and our agendas make any sense   when they make…
