I'm a longhaired almost-hippie stuck in the inner suburbs of a major rust-belt metropolis who's thoughtful, creative, and kind of geeky. In exchange for a paycheck I run around in a cubicle maze most days. When I escape, I play music, hang out in coffee houses, dink around on the computer, take naps, and think I should be off in the woods somewhere. Every once in a while I get in my car and drive far, far away, though I've always come back so far.

It was a cloudy day, a Saturday, maybe a little cool as in spring because I remember wearing a jacket. I was six, maybe. My dad took me with him in the car; I guess my sister stayed home with … Continue reading
I wanted to write something here sometime, but never quite got the chance to do it. This has been a pretty hellish week at work, with a lot of tasks coming that were not expected, requiring a lot of quick-change-do-this. … Continue reading
