On why I stepped away...and why I'm back...

Meanwhile, in Missouri…

to write about the events taking place in my hometown of St. Louis, Missouri.  Last night, Ferguson was filled with more protests …more teargas,
rubber bullets, and the violent arrest o...

On a disturbingly regular basis...
You know that scene in the movie Love Actually ? The one where Emma Thompson goes into the bedroom she shares with her husband, after having found proof that he’s likely cheating on her, and collects herself so that she can go to the Holiday event at her ch...

On calling out the shit in the middle of the room…
Happy 2014, y’all! I’ve been absent from the internets for a long
spell. Between a starting a new job (yay!), dealing with some personal drama
(not so yay, but getting better), and news that Betsey the sorta-beagle is in
the process of dying from cancer (so...

Thoughts, emotions, and awareness…
Longtime readers know that
I’m a bit addicted to the history of social justice movements. After this week, I can’t help pondering
how the distance of time informs the way events are viewed. I have lived through

What I’ve been up to…
Hi, y’all! I know, I know…I’m the worst. I’ve been gone forever and a day, but I’ve got a good

joy who often kept me centered when all th...
