A lot has happened in the last two months. Like, a shit ton. Which, when you think about it, can’t be any more than a normal ton. As a unit of measurement, it fails. And yet, here we are.
It started innocently enough. A friend was going through something rough. She assembled a handful of people who were individually supportive of her but largely didn’t know each other. (Some of them did. I didn’t. I didn’t know anyone but the one forming this rag-tag group.) We started a group chat and I swear to […]
“It’s all too much.” That’s what I told her. She gave me that look. You know the one. I know you know the one. I sighed because that’s what I do when she gives me that look. “It’s not complicated,” she said. I cocked my head to the side. Had I been a cat, I […]

I need to start writing for myself again, and I need to move forward with some other money-making stuff I’ve been […]
It’s been a while. Too long. I know. Things I’ve said before. But I mean it. I used to publish here every week, and life kind of forced a pause on that. A lot has changed, but I miss the writing. I intend to start it up again, slowly, like easing into freezing waters. How […]
