Just to delight us

On Tuesday I drove even deeper downtown for a meeting. I work a few minutes' drive outside of the city center, now. But, anyway, I didn't mind the jaunt. It was sunny. And summer. And I had my windows down and everything smelled and seemed of sunshine and warmth and positivity. And then! Walking into... Continue Reading →

Podcast? Shmaybay?

Justin and Julia came over tonight. WONDER WHY? Because, maybe, there is talk of starting a podcast. Do you like to read my words? Well. You could listen to them out-loud, too, because I kind of talk almost identically to the way I write. Importantly, though, these two have words that are even cooler than... Continue Reading →

We can keep biking, keep hiking, keep having late-nite conversations because the sun doesn't quite set. We can keep wearing summer-clothes and sit outside at restaurants and stuff. We can...

Hey blog. BACK FOR MOAR.

Hello, world. Have you ever stopped exercising for, like, a week, and then, when you go back, everything is weird and hard and you're sore again because your body is like, "wut?" even though the stuff you did used to be super standard? Because that just happened to me last Friday. At the circus gym.... Continue Reading →

I (co-)wrote something that people performed

So, I've always loved acting. Always. Even when I was little and shy, the stage thrilled me. To me, acting is a gift of love to my audience. Because acting requires vulnerability--one never knows how the audience will respond. Acting takes courage. Acting takes selfless gift and commitment and honor. And, mostly...love. When I act,...
