One of My Perfect Days

We wanted an adventure outdoors. Something far enough away to be special, but close enough that it would be easily reached. Our lazy and late start meant many of the local state parks were already at capacity. So we struck out into the hills, to the place called the Greenbelt. Whiskey pulled us through shallow [...]

Two Red Things and a Theory of Mysticism

With the old white car on it’s last legs (or last wheels?), we finally purchased a new one. I spoke sad words over the Honda to wish it well on it’s journey to Mexico, which is surely the only place it can be sold now. Then I drove it to the dealership to leave as [...]

Jury Duty and Wedding Things

Yesterday I had jury duty. It was painfully boring. I decided that I wouldn’t lie to try to get out of serving since I have no legitimate excuse. But I wasn’t going to pretend I was having fun while I was there. I wore black from head to toe and crossed my arms in front [...]
