I don't know where either of us will be come Monday. The thought of a world without you in it seems so foreign to me that I can't see how it's possible, which could be why the thought of it petrifies me. I don't have many regrets in life, but I seem to have several that revolve around you and since it might be some time before, or if we see each other again there were a few things I wanted to say.
My friend is going to pass away today. I haven't seen her in years. Our adventures kept us in different parts of the country, and for her, at times it was a different country. We met when she was a short three-hour drive up the interstate from Nashville in Louisville. She had connected with my … Continue reading Goodbye Seems To Be The Hardest Word
I feel like John Mayer has taken pity on me and my disbelief that I'm going to have to deal with DJT this year by announcing his intention to release an EP every month in lieu of a full album. Wave One of The Search for Everything was released a few hours ago. It's early, so I've … Continue reading The Search for Everything – Wave One
It was eight years ago today. I can only easily remember the date and how long it's been because I was supposed to have gone home to celebrate a friend's birthday, but had decided to stay a little longer, hoping to go to Obama's first inauguration. Honestly, I rarely think about it at all anymore. … Continue reading January 17, 2009
I'd say this year has felt like a marathon, but it was more akin to one of those 10k mud races with the insane obstacle courses. Seven trips, two jobs, 700 miles moved, 100+ karaoke songs, one restraining order, two broken hearts, and maybe, what, 10,000 drinks poured? And basically everybody died. I'm serious. George … Continue reading .38 Special
They're not the most sophisticated songs, but in my mind they tell the story of my year (and in one case the night John Mayer released a new song and I fell asleep with it on repeat). In any case, angst is alive and well here, kids.
A few years ago, right before my ex proposed to his new wife, a high school student he left me for at 30, he asked me why we didn't just run away together years before when we'd had the chance. I reminded him that I tried. He was the one that didn't show up. https://youtu.be/v4pi1LxuDHc
Dear Secretary Clinton, I am sorry. I'm sorry we weren't enough to stand up for you and what you've shown us we can do. I'm sorry we failed you. I'm even sorrier we've failed ourselves. However, this morning I am also hopeful for the embers I see burning in these women that you've empowered with your career and campaign.
When you're deep in an abusive relationship, it's easy to feel isolated. Especially when your partner is a guy that not a single one of your friends likes. Isolation means when you finally get out, you look up and think you're alone. You think everybody left you while you were trying to dig your way out … Continue reading Thank You
