Helplessness Blues

We saw Fleet Foxes tonight in Indianapolis and I only teared up three times. The last song sings: “I was raised up believing I was somehow unique Like a snowflake distinct among snowflakes, unique in each way you can see…Read more

Taking Vacation Home

After every trip, I try to make a list of ways to take it home with me. Each trip teaches me something new. Sometimes lessons overlap. Reminders versus new revelations. Other times, a trip can reinforce why you do what…Read more
