There is a beautiful, historical place in St. Paul, Minnesota by the name of the Saint Paul Hotel. It is a lovely place to stay and I've been lucky enough to be able to stay twice in the Park Suite. The most recent time was for New Year's Eve in... Continue reading

It has always been my estimation that the best way to honor someone like David Bowie, you know one of the giants of humankind, is to do something creative or compassionate in their honor. One big one for me was when Terry Pratchett died. I started writing a story called... Continue reading

I am not putting my tree up this year for a few reasons but the biggest being the three new cats in my life. They would surely bring it down at this point. They're not very well-behaved yet. I'll just say we're working on it. As such, I've found myself... Continue reading
