Act on it

They filmed a zombie movie across from work this week. I think myself a terrible actor, and yet am surprised every day when, whether it was intended or not, people comment on what I show the world, what I am to different people. I've spent the last few days acting on some things and failing... Continue Reading →


Restless beat

I can't settle today, nothing has pulled me in. I miss the rain, my dog and having someone to talk to about what's on my mind. I am simmering all day. The nights are better, quieter.

We feast on veggie wraps and greek salad, truffle hummus... Continue Reading →

Food Motivated

I don't understand when people say they don't like to make their own food, or when they survive on store-bought sweets, pre-sliced pieces of plastic cheese, chips and bottles of coke.

I find lately that my capacity to deal with the complexity of the world is declining. There are just too many layers and interpretations and questions and motives and maladies. I'd like to read a good book and have a nap, wake up and eat something yummy, maybe a cup of tea. Simple. Done. None... Continue Reading →
