The Cathartic Release of Crying

Thank goodness for mom’s. Nobody knows how to comfort you quite like someone that has been with you since you were conceived. I’ve lately been feeling a lot of stress and pressure, potentially self-imposed, but also circumstantial. Trying to survive economically in San Francisco is a tall order. I’m grateful … Read more

Sitting at a Coffee Shop

Life is good. I think over the last days, I’m finally realizing what it feels like to be happy. I think I’ve lived much of my life cut off from the feelings and flow of the world around me. I’ve been working on opening up my heart in my own … Read more

Sitting at the Columbus Airport

I have a headache. My chest is tight. I can’t wait to be back home, to release the tension in my skull, and to breathe deeply of some Glen Canyon park air. I still have two long flights. The stamina required to travel can be immense. I feel like an … Read more

Strange Evening in Ohio

Memorial Day

Hey, everybody. How’s today treating you? I decided to go into the office to work on a variety of things. Anybody else working this holiday weekend? The stress of pushing forward the enterprise of a new business can get to you, but I keep reminding myself, patience and persistence.… Read more

Silly Saturday

Lounged about in bed for a good part of the morning, kinda like these dogs from yesteryear when I was a dogsitter. I spend far too much time playing on my phone at the start of the day. Finally, I kicked my butt into gear and decided to head into … Read more

Wacky Weekend

Spent a lot of time in an introspective state of mind. At least managed to do laundry and reading, but seem to have struggled to actually get unstuck what got stagnant on the inside. Thankfully on Monday I had supervision and therapy for myself and that helped, but not quite … Read more
