… but I don’t really care. Years and years ago, back when I was first separated, I met a man in a coffee shop. I remember that I was wearing this vintage-style tshirt that said, “Satisfied” in a baseball jersey style kind of way. That shirt was his “in”… Smooth operator. He ended up being […]
Listen here. Or on iTunes. Expect more from me soon. Work is going amazing so, I’m hoping, time will open up for me soon. I have been writing so much lately, I just haven’t plugged it all in to the blog yet. Soon, very soon.
Last night, on the drive back to Athens with my boyfriend, we discussed writing and the exchange of energy and the absolute magic of WRITE CLUB. Let me go back… Because I can’t talk about how amazing WRITE CLUB is without first introducing you. Last summer, I got an email from Shelby Hofer, c0-director of […]

Do me a favor and watch this video at full screen. VCA 2010 RACE RUN from changoman on Vimeo. That feeling you’ve got in your gut? That flipping, nervous, anxious, omg-I-can’t-handle-this feeling? It’s typically followed up by the holy-shit-I-really-just-did-that euphoria. I needed a reminder of this today, faced with impending stress that is out of […]
So, it’s official. I’m relocating for a positive reason. I’m uprooting my family from all I’ve ever known to strike out in a new town (a small town) with different opportunities professionally, to be closer to my sister and her kids and to be closer to the boyfriend as we move closer towards making our […]
