    2022-12-03 New Leaf #2 🍂

    2022-10-28 One Day By Day

    On October 21st, 2010.. twelve years ago I wrote my first post on my first blog. No surprise, it was a poem. It was titled Day By Day and it was about the act of starting each day by reflecting on the day before, and then “jumping in” again from there.  It was a giant […]

    2022-09-15 Sometimes When It Rains, It Pours

    Sometimes it’s all dried up, and there’s nothing to say. And sometimes, even though my creative writing is non-existent, the other words are just begging to come out.  I guess you could call this post a continuation of the one I finished yesterday. When I was done writing, I believed I had said all I […]

    2022-08-21 Epic Summer Road Trip Day 0: Reading poetry, chaos, and exhaustion.. but I didn’t die! 😂

    2022-08-14 Denver Road Trip Day 4: Meeeeoooow Wolf

    This feels like the good ole days right? Writing blog posts every day regardless of how boring or repetitive they are. Today’s topic is no surprise. Day 4 of my little road trip. Not to be mistaken with my BIG road trip which starts in one short week. I’m not joking. If I did something […]

    2022-06-28 A Day In The Life

    Today’s experiment, after waking up at 4 AM and only four hours of sleep (I was revising poems till midnight), is data mining a “day in the life.” It’s a little research project I dreamed up after having not just one or two run-ins with my errant brain and its memory flaws, but a whole string of seemingly unconnected instances.

    2022-06-04 #1000WordsOfSummer Day 1: Today is a Good Day to Start ✍️

Starting new things is exciting and fun. So much so, that for many years of my life that title phrase, “Today is […]
