This fresh mound of earth that was not here yesterday, now it is here today, shovels all akimbo, covered in a plastic blue tarp, a sharpied stake with a name. "Did the virus do this to you?" Continue reading

There's rain falling from the sky. I think we've all spent too much time together (Day 51) and the buttons that we know how to push are now so large that they're like huge overgrown mushrooms on our backs and we bump them even if we're trying to avoid them. Continue reading

My last few months have found me struggling with time. With age. With love. With relationships. With the masks that we wear. Self-medication can take so many forms and can cause harm in our lives in such varied ways. The devil in our own hearts is sometimes a mistress whose lies are far sweeter and nicer to hear than the hard truths we're tasked with facing about ourselves.
