Three Things Happen When You’re Honest On The Internet, Only One Of Them Is Good

I’m very honest on Twitter. There are many nights where I’ll tweet those dark moments I have when I’m thinking about my brother or my nephew.

Growing Old Gracefully Is Crap, But Not For The Reasons You Think

I’m a bit baffled why the way we discuss age. In truth, I’m a bit baffled that we discuss it at all. This year I noticed the first signs of fine lines around my eyes. I’m well overdue for them, as many people younger than I am experience them. My first thought was a bit […]

The Memories of a Mug

Memories Are Not Something that You Can Hold. I’ve never been one for documenting my history in photographs. I prefer to archive my life in words.
