Passionate About Passions

A few years back, while at breakfast, a friend-of-a-friend was reading the newspaper.

In the three years since, I have been met with so many incredulous, “You’re not on Facebook?” questions that I have memorized my standard reply – why I need to explain myself for a choice I make is something entirely beyond me, but given that it’s the Facebook age, […]

December 19, 2016

I have been very, very terrible at blogging. To be honest, I don’t have an excuse. I know my blog is here. I know I paid for my domain for the sole purpose of remembering I put money into this, so I better use it. …and it’s been nearly a month since my last post? […]
