stories we tell ourselves

    I’ve been feeling like a phony lately. I can’t think of a life that could be more perfect than mine right now; summer in Hawaii, no schedule, I am saturated in love that spans half the globe. Sun, sand, ocean. No real worries, only an uncertain future (along with almost everyone else.) I can finally […]

    I used to travel the world with songs like these on repeat. I think if I have an addiction it is the beginnings of things. I liked drifting from city to city, always just a visitor. I do not put down roots anywhere. There is a tantalizing sadness in not belonging. A sweet ache deep […]

Sometimes it feels inevitable that my life took this … Continue reading So fucking special

  • 08/15/15--16:37: Climate change is personal
  • Climate change. Such an innocent word. Unlike war there are not a handful of people responsible. In a way, we are all responsible, and then none of us are.

    "God offers to every mind a choice between repose and truth. Take which you please - you can never have both", said Ralph Waldo Emerson. Truth or repose, said Matthiessen, in my ear today, quoting Emerson. I want both, of course, but for now I'll settle for becoming a traveler again.

  • That’s pretty much the mantra for the year, isn’t it? Literally, the world is burning up. Politically, I’ve never been more discouraged.
