Go west, young man

Today was the day – after a beautiful month together, Mr. Blue Eyes had to get on his chariot and begin winging his way home to the Southwest. It would be fair to say that a large number of tears were shed this morning.

But that’s not the whole story.  I don’t want to …

The miracle of refusing drama

In the newsroom yesterday a colleague said to me, “You seem so normal. I can’t figure out why you’re working here.”  I had to laugh.  It seems like my life has been filled with weird shit from day one.  It’s the atmosphere I was born into – estranged families, famous and rich people always on …

The miracle of knowing the crazy

Here’s the issue with feeling great and believing that everything is going to work out – at some point, fear kicks in (or perhaps it’s hormones, or not getting enough sleep, or the extra helpings of potato chips I ate yesterday).
