Grief is a strange & tricky beast. 

We've become rather familiar. Though I can only guess where it will lead me, I find myself following along blindly. Any direction in competition with this seems false.

I've experienced loss. But not like this. Not the kind that consist...

We've got a lot on our plate right now, folks. We're not weighing our options. We're juggling grenades.

The future is wildly uncertain. The future is uncertain by nature, but usually with a degree of certainty that you can rely on not to make your existence too unpredic...

Life seems a bit like the ominous answers from an 8 ball lately. "Better not tell you now." "Outlook not so good." "Don't count on it." "Reply hazy, try again." "Cannot predict now."

Tuesday, we Angelenos got the word. August. Well, it was "through July" for a few hours...

I'm feeling a bit “Hemingway” about life. Or at least the Corey Stoll Hemingway I know & revere from Midnight in Paris. That profound directness resonates evermore at present.

I began a series of sentences just now- all describing in different words the overwhelming sen...

Well. Here we are.

Before I venture towards humor or sarcasm or otherwise...

This will be a sort of time capsule post- strongly laced with hostility for the place I cringe to call “home.”


I moved to Los Angeles 10 years ago today. I did not want to come here. And when I got here, I didn't want to stay. Not much has changed.

Work-related opportun...

Stormy weather a-brewin' on the forecast ahead. Visitors be on your guard. The animals on this tour bite.


Anger. It's a struggle for me. It's something I don't have a handle on.

I'm a quiet angry person. I simmer. I steep. I come to a boil with a little hiss. My anger s...

I read yesterday that Lucille Ball felt personally responsible for keeping humor in people's lives. What a gal.

When I logged into Wix just now, I discovered that it (I'm giving this web development platform the ability to think for itself) has labeled my blog as "old."...

This is an observation on that mutinous, vexatious, egocentric illness that has the audacity to be non-life-threatening. It is known simply as a "cold." We all know how capricious & sinister these cureless little devil viruses are. They strike with the most subtle of w...
