Mojo Rising: In Which I Want To Be A Blogger

Hey, reader. So I’ve not been blogging on purpose. Didn’t have it in me. For two years. Yeah, I know. You can fake it if you wanna, but I don’t phone it in. What you don’t know is, the more annoyed or passionate I’ve been of late, say the last six months, the more I’ve been […]

Our Lives After Their Death

There’s a full moon tomorrow. I’m in a weird headspace. In social media, I’m seeing snippets here and there from those I’m connected with, remembering the passing of our good friend Derek Miller last year. My thoughts on Derek, as his death took the world by storm by way of an incredible blog post, were […]
