All right, it’s done! On New Year’s Day. So cliché. Wasn’t nearly as lightning fast as I was in 2008, but I’m doing what I can to flatten this curve. There weren’t too many negative after-effects either, which is great news. Thanks for organizing it, Camille! Sure, I’d do it again. Still think another...Continue reading
This isn’t nearly as impressive as I feel like it should be, but I’ve had moments of excitement imagining what it’d be like to have long hair over the last several months. I still haven’t been able to replicate where I was at age 4, but you never know. It’s getting old, but I’ll...Continue reading
Guess I must be feeling optimistic about the year ahead. Here are some ideas about what to put on for the next FronteraFest (a year from now?): Snatch and Release: This is a script I already have, and intended to feature at a variety show last summer, about a punk band that has to...Continue reading
That’s right, another decimal-place-laden post. This was the goal for mid-December. It was difficult and tiring – but satisfying too. Planning for the half marathon at year’s end. Then maybe I’ll take it down a notch....
While I wait for the old ship to come in with creative projects (bestsellers, Oscars, Tonys, Emmys, etc.), it’s nice to know that the daily 9-to-5er isn’t all in vain either. I got nominated for a year-end award for my day job. Posting it here as a reference and affirmation if/when I need it....Continue reading
I ran 9.1* miles last week. That’s more than I’ve gone in about nine months. Wasn’t exactly a speed demon about it, but maybe that half-marathon is within reach again. Will see if I can get to 10 before too long here. * man, who tracks their mileage to the decimal place? how embarrassing… ...
It’s been a while since I’ve been in here, and there’s been a lot going on in the world (obvi), but I wanted to get down some goals and try to hold myself accountable to them over the next several months. Here they are, in chronological order: Write a new experimental short play for...Continue reading
Honored to be featured on Episode #2 of the fine, new, entertaining podcast Stories Found. The story I tell (I can’t quite make myself type the name of it here for some reason) is actually one I originally wrote 20 years ago. I remember sending it to a highfalutin literary journal at the time....Continue reading
It’s been a year since I got to wear a special bracelet, and I’ve had a number of physical ups and downs since then. Early on, I seemed to make a quick, strong recovery. But then odd pains and side effects showed up in the new year. Seems I’m not quite as impervious to...Continue reading
One sort of unexpected development out of all this Covid business is that it’s inspired me to help get my dad and sister up on some kind of platform that allows for video calls. My dad just got an iPad a few months ago. It’s been an occasional struggle to get it to behave....Continue reading
