• I Feel Hopeful About the Future

    Hope is the way through the narrow gate.

    I’m a skeptic, and I’m skeptical of myself, too.

  • 2018 Has Been a Weird, Weird Year…

    2018 has been a weird, weird year for me.

    I’ve been overwhelmed, discouraged, and disoriented for most of it.

  • Nourishment vs. Doughnuts, Orgasms, and Facebook Likes

    Choosing nourishment over the fleeting pleasure of doughnuts, orgasms, and Facebook ‘likes’ in a society that runs on junk-food connections is a challenge for all of us.

    Humans have basic needs: food, water, sleep, sex, safety from physical or psychological harm.

    We […]

  • What I found in 24 hours with no media

    I’m back from my 24 hours with no media.
