I started life with an idealistic existential urgency that made perfect sense.

Stupid Finches!

…as if presidential lawsuits and hashtag movements have no connection with the greater clockwork of life stew that built us all…

Lame of Thrones

I used to wake up and turn on the news or cyber trip through the gossip heads to find out what everyone was supposed to think about today. Now I hesitate.

Telling It Like It Is

The news cycle has changed completely. Is it lost on anyone that the tragedy unfolding in Texas is changing the news toward the positive. Is it our interest that is fickle or the people who tell us what we want to hear? Or is it that we are being shown the sharp contrast between the…

Charlottesville and Our Forefathers

Sally Hemmings was three quarters white. She was Half-Sister to Thomas Jefferson’s wife and spent her life as a slave and Mother to some of his children. She lived out her remaining years after Jefferson’s death in Charlottesville, VA as an unfreed slave who had been “given her time”.¬†

Legally Terrified

It’s finally legal and i’ve never been more paranoid in my life.

Advice From Out Of Nowhere

It is a beautiful day. I am worried that it isn’t and I don’t know. That happens sometimes. We look around at what is in our immediate vicinity and we incorrectly assess the world from that information. Then we give advice or judge the actions of others that can’t see what we see… Wait. I…

We The Game Pieces

Echoes of Sustainability

Somewhere in time lived a man of meager means by today’s standards. But when his fellows took stock of his wealth they marveled at the inspiration seen there. They…

Believe This

Belief is the end of the argument that is incomplete.

Barista Movement

I’m tired but I’m not “yell at a barista” tired. Sometimes I am though and it’s all I can do to not snip at a customer service rep or grumble at a slow walking person in front of me at the airport or… yell at a barista? I don’t know if I’ve ever been that…

40 Yards And A Mule

Today is the biggest of the three days per year that I care about football. I live in Savannah Georgia so I have adopted the Falcons and now they’re going to the Super Bowl and I am going to a pizza place. I don’t eat pizza and I don’t play football but I’m very excited…
