Sat, 03 Jan 2015 21:06:38 +0000Some time after December 24th, Kim Parsell died in her home, in bed. I do not know how she died, but seeing how we can draw no lessons from the circumstances of her passing, the facts of how are not germane to the life she lived. And what a life did she live! So many of us in … Continue reading Remembering Kim Parsell
Thu, 02 Jan 2014 13:44:23 +0000I joined WebDevStudios in late December of 2012, after a brief stint in full-time freelance work. I was presented with an offer that I couldn’t pass up. A year later, I can unequivocally state that my life and my skills in this craft are better, way better, than I could have imagined. I work with … Continue reading My first year at WebDevStudios
Tue, 01 Jan 2013 23:19:05 +0000It was a year that flew by so quickly that I had spent little time noting events, and worse, self-reflection. One event quickly moved to the next before I could tap the brakes and squiggle a few notes here or on paper. The past year was marked by a lot of travel: WordCamp Miami, WordCamp … Continue reading Recapping 2012
Wed, 21 Nov 2012 20:05:44 +0000It’s been two months since I started working for myself, and it’s been great. The fair warnings from friends were fair, though outcomes aren’t as terrible as some have feared. Client work is amazing when one knows how to set boundaries, and this concept of boundaries is, as I am coming to learn, almost foreign … Continue reading The Work/Life Balance

Fri, 09 Mar 2012 01:00:56 +0000I first read the now-sensational Grand Forks, ND Olive Garden review by Marilyn Hagerty last night, and in response, I tweeted: “I should’ve written a review like that the day I learned Fat Tire—which I first had in May 2011—had entered Maryland last Oct.” I really do not know what it was about the column … Continue reading Marilyn Hagerty and a peek into the America you’ve forgotten about
Thu, 01 Mar 2012 16:17:34 +0000This morning greeted us with tragic news of Andrew Breitbart’s passing. He was 43. He went where so few of us didn’t even have the courage to think of going, and I admire his work. I am never wont towards fandom towards anyone in the political sphere. It didn’t matter if it was Speaker Boehner or a think … Continue reading Rest in Peace, Andrew Breitbart
Sun, 25 Dec 2011 22:40:33 +0000A few days ago I sat down to put together this year’s Christmas card list. Last year I sent out over twenty. This year, I couldn’t even keep up. Add to that the fact that it is not my habit to merely sign a Christmas card with some boilerplate greetings, no. If you got one … Continue reading A merry Christmas to all my friends

Thu, 10 Nov 2011 13:27:11 +0000The Legend Of Rick Perry, prior to his announcing the candidacy, was polling over Mitt Romney. His supporters—we—were waiting with bated breath for him to join the primary, sweep away the sideshows, show he is Not Mitt Romney, and win the election next year. Then, all the True Conservatives turned on him on matters of … Continue reading What in the world is happening to Rick Perry?
