  • 2017-07-27 “Just Say Yes” Can Lead to a Mess

    Yesterday in the midst of several different goings-on durning my now normal-ish routine, I found myself feeling the all-too-familiar feeling of being quite overwhelmed with commitments. It’s a rush of anxiety that sweeps through me and momentarily distracts me from the present moment and into the future where I’m thinking of half a dozen things […]

  • 2017-07-23 Sunday Status Update – The Bumble Edition

    I stopped doing normal Sunday status updates because, well, the sleep still goes up and down, the exercise is pretty consistent, and there is nothing noteworthy about my dietary intake. I mean, how boring can one life be anyway? So today instead I’ll be reporting live from the front line of the dating war. I […]

  • 2017-07-23 The Mantra Cheeseburger.. 3.5

    There’s this restaurant on Maple street I’ve driven past dozens of times before. They have a tree out front that is artificial and lights up year round (not a Christmas tree). I’ve never looked up the name or thought to stop before to see what it was like, even though I have thought about it. […]

  • 2017-07-14 PNW Day 4: I’ve Come a Long Way Baby…

    … Literally. Yesterday I drove from Rockaway to Crescent City, Ca and what should have been a 6.5 hour drive took us 12 hours. We checked out of one motel at 11AM and checked into the next at 11PM. We made so many stops along the way. Some were good and some were bad, some […]

  • 2017-07-09 What Potato’s Do

    You know what I didn’t do yesterday? Look at my to-do list. You know what else I didn’t do, pretty much anything. If I’m being perfectly honest, the reason is because I only slept for 2 hours. Yeah.. 2. I went to sleep at 4:30AM on Friday night/Saturday morning and woke up at 6:30. Why […]

  • 2017-07-08 Little Bits of Lots of Stuff

    It’s Saturday in a life where everyday feels like Saturday now. I made myself a to-do list at the beginning of the week and as soon as I am done writing today I am going to go down to the kitchen to check it and see how I did. There are no “rights and wrongs” […]

  • 2017-07-06 The Fabric of Our Lives

    Today I want to write about relationships. Our lives are composed of the sum of our experiences and that composition is largely made up of moments we have shared with other people. Our parents and relatives and friends and lovers and children. There are people we pass by in our daily routines, like the barista […]

  • 2017-07-02 Fireworks on a First Date

    Let’s just set aside the fact that yesterday was July first and that there were only three days left until the 4th of July. Even if that was not the case, I would still stand by the statement that there were fireworks on my first date. Yowza. We met at a bar near my place […]
