Just the song in my heart. That’s a strange thing to say at a moment like this. Look down. That’s an impressive pool of blood. Lake Craig is creeping out into the whatever you call the area beyond the emergency room curtain. Informed of the SUV making my weekend more kinetic, Lesley texts from...
The sun is setting. The gators are restless. Gators with a capital “G”. A dozen nine year-olds have stopped practice to be part of the show. There’s an unveiling to pull off and the Seaside Pony League Gators are here so let’s have them pull the tarp off the sign.

Countdown - Honor Among Thieves
Watching the Spartans whup on the boys from Watsonville, the question arises; at what point do you stop stealing bases against an opponent?

A week with Colin on Spring Break in Seattle has come and gone, too quickly. I lost at everything. Karting. Rally...

Peaks & Valleys
There’s only so much clarity we can take at any one time. Too much, and our head explodes or our heart implodes. Or both.
So, sometimes, in addition to these things not coming out quite right, some don’t come out for day or weeks. Or years. Or lifetimes, I suppose. Warning: length alert. ...

There Once Was A Town
I thought we were going to step outside and fight. That’s how tough of an interview it was. Larry Laschen was sitting in on my interview to be a Management Analyst for the Vernon Hills Police Department and was peppering me with questions. I was young and dumb. Too dumb to be scared of the guy...
