I am not dead, presumed or otherwise

My grand return to blogging and social media has begun. Where am I??? Where have I been??? Who have I been?? (Who have I been?? Getting a little too existential there.) In October of 2019, I gave up on Twitter for some reason. I gave up on Instagram in 2020 for some reason (maybe it … Continue reading I am not dead, presumed or otherwise

Saturday Morning Post Vol. 58

1. 4th of July weekend. The lake is wild today, white caps topping the waves like thick oil paint. The water itself is nearly three different colors, dark grey, green, and bright blue, as if the wind is mixing the water up and dividing it. Back across the road, they are setting up a carnival. … Continue reading Saturday Morning Post Vol. 58

Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 57

1. It's super duper windy today at the lake. In general it’s been very windy lately. I like wind. I like watching the trees bend and seeing the leaves fold over themselves, like they’re ducking for cover. Strong wind feels like a warning, and a lot of times it is. If anything in nature could … Continue reading Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 57

Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 56

Let's just … Continue reading May and April Wrap Up: in which I return from the ends of the earth

If something can go wrong, it should go wrong (like in fiction. Not real life. Please not real life)

(When was the last time I did a post on Wednesday? I have no idea, yet here we are. Welcome back) "If something can go wrong, it will go wrong." Murphy's law. An old military saying. Whatever you like to think of it as. Along similar lines, I would like to create a new saying; … Continue reading If something can go wrong, it should go wrong (like in fiction. Not real life. Please not real life)

Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 52

1. I am once more sitting at the lake (yes, in my car). It’s warm this time, and the lake is very blue, though it admittedly looks a lot more turquoise through my sunglasses. (Do you ever take your sunglasses off and are suddenly disappointed at the actual color of everything? Like excuse me, someone … Continue reading Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 52
