Growing up in Indiana, I learned all about The Greatest Spectacle in Racing, the Indy 500. Lately, I've begun to wonder if there's something more appealing about the open road than the groomed track.
Yesterday in church, our pastor said, "You cannot passively achieve what you do not actively pursue." When I heard this, my mental engine revved: "Gentlemen, start your engines!" But I couldn't put the car in gear. It feels...
Monday. Not so good to me, most weeks. Today began with a negative thought that threatened to undo me before I even got out of bed. A life hack I read about over the weekend rewrote the day before it could be destroyed. Read today's post to discover its source.
Today is my birthday. My last year as a fortysomething. In 2011, I wanted to have a different kind of birthday. I didn't want to spend the day thinking about myself, so I drafted this email and posted something similar on Fac...

Freelance Writer and Editor, 2012 - present
Writing helps clarity emerge from confusion and transforms the noise into music my soul can sing.
