I wrote this last year on the Signal Fire trip to Northern Arizona in Speing 2015: The sun is going down and the vibrant sages and oranges of the canyon and brush are slowly changing to soothing greys. It is so quiet here. I feel like my head is the loudest sound in this canyon. […]

I watched forks over knives again tonight. It is reminding me why this vegan diet idea is a good one. I feel old. I am 30 pounds over weight. I have fat on my upper ribs and it’s uncomfortable. My digestion, although better than it used to be, is still not so great. I don’t […]
In January of 2014 I was inspired by friends on Facebook to create a “2014 Jar of Awesomeness.” I was determined that 2014 was going to be a great year for my family. We were going to be so overflowing with awesomeness that we would stuff our quart-sized jar full of little slips of paper, […]

I just wanted to share some of the drawings I made during my residency at Leland Iron Works in October of 2015. Many are smallish, anywhere from 4×6 to 9×12. A few are 22×40. Much of my time spent at Leland was on self reflection. I thought about relationships and a yearning for connection. I […]
I am depressed. I have too many feelings and nowhere to put them. I need to seriously pair down my life. So, I’m stepping back from social media. I’m going back to writing. I’m going back to the blog. Back to the daily practice of photos and writing. Back to writing letters to the people […]
