excerpts from the notes on my computer

  • Amazing realization: I’m only 28:10 into this thunderstorm. 
  • I’m afraid that if I sleep, I’ll miss Flo’s play-by-play of 50 Shades of Grey.
  • my psychic stomach 
Happy Saturday!

That's the way of luck, isn't it? Sometimes the splash of water over the side and then other times you're the one leaning over, tipping the boat, looking for your reflection in the waves.

The ship rights itself.

deep thoughts on campus

Student walking ahead of me: "I can't wait for the day when talking shit is going to help me resolve things."

Sing it, boy.

the georgia mud

In an ongoing extension of Bold Moves 2012, I have decided to "real"-ify my website with blog posts about writing. So if you've any interest in my writing life, you'll want to take a gander/follow me over there.

This space, up on the second shelf, will remain what it was always intended for: life, in whatever form.

many mountains moving


  • Driving through a missile range
  • Frolicking in the dunes of White Sands
  • Seeing a camel, a roadrunner, and a vulture
  • Inadvertently running through a triathlon
  • Hiking a mountain
  • Visiting a beautiful gym
  • Eating delicious sour cream ("Las altos mexicanos," as Tony would say)
  • Finishing Game of Thrones and hovering in the local Barnes & Noble, reading Daughter of Smoke and Bone at a kiddie table hidden behind a fake tree
  • Finding time for blog posts with Flo


  • Sporting a sweet sunburn on one arm post-White Sands
  • Stepping on cactus while hiking
  • Falling down trail
  • Breaking camera while falling

I'll take the mountains.
