16 years

It has been 16 years. How has it been 16 years? *** When I woke up this morning, roused from my slumber by little hands poking at me, I checked my phone, saw the date, and felt the familiar pit in my stomach as I read the words "Monday, September 11" on my iPhone's home screen. I can't believe ...

I got a little sad

Barcelona

I wrote this piece on Thursday, August 17, on the day when a van drove down La Rambla and into human beings; the day of a brutal attack. It was too fresh to post that day, and so I am publishing it now, a few days later, with no less heaviness in my heart. The photo above ...

Bird on the wire

"But I swear by this song" -Leonard Cohen, Bird on the Wire (Side Note: In searching back through the archives of this blog, I am astounded to see that I have only referenced Leonard Cohen once here, but I know that he has had a much larger presence on my Instagram page.

I’m a gardener now!

So, the title of this post may be slightly misleading, but I am going to say that in comparison to where I was at this time last year, I am a freakin' plant expert. I have never liked gardening, and I think it is for two main reasons: 1. I have never been good at it 2. A nearly debilitating ...
