5 (ok 7!) Things I'm Asking for Christmas

October 13, 2016

You see this? A tiny note that came inside my box of checks from the bank. You know those blue, plastic check holders that everyone has been using for far too long?

The Art of Life

October 5, 2012


Whoa - so I'm cleaning out my files on my computer and stumble upon a writing project I had for a class in college in 2002. Amazing insight from my younger self ... the following is what I wrote back then:
