For Sarah

Tuesday we put our dog Sarah to sleep. Sarah was 16 and a half years old. Most of those years she spent with us. I’m not going to pretend I loved Sarah with my whole heart. Most of the time my affection level for her hovered between tolerance and mild annoyance. She was a sibling, …

Blessing

Hell, Grand Cayman

Today, I’m taking a deep breath and counting my blessing. The past two years of my life have been difficult. The past year has been extremely so.

Oh, Captain, My Captain

I’ve been torn about writing anything about the death of Robin Williams since I found out last night. Part of me feels silly for being so utterly sad because of the death of a man I never knew, and part of me feels like it is a bit bandwagon-y. Then I realized that is all …

Connections

My father is in the hospital again. This post isn’t about that, but yet it is. My mom and I were sitting on some comfortable benches by the elevators at the hospital waiting for something, when this woman started punching the buttons angrily and yelling into her cellphone.

The Good Really does Come with the Bad.

In a lot of ways this has been a rough year. Things seem to not want to go smoothly. Every single time something has gone wrong, someone in my life has popped up to do something freaking spectacular though. Most of the complications have been things forcing me to learn to lean on my Viking. …
