Daddy’s Magic Birthday

Whoever had the brilliant idea to plan a Sticky for the same week as C’s birthday… well it was me, and I clealy didn’t think it through. I think I can be forgiven, because all of C’s birthdays up to this point have been pretty low-key. Turning 1, that’s a big deal, but it’s a […]

Pushed and pulled

Yesterday I felt pulled in two directions. I’ve talked to other artist parents about this, about this pull, and yesterday, not for the first time, I felt it. I’d had a super productive day planned. Work at my job-type-job in the morning, then drop off my brand new laptop for repair (I think I got […]

Life as a rogue asteroid

It’s okay. We don’t have to talk. It’s been a rough week, and it’s only almost Thursday. I feel a little eaten up by the world this week, by my little corner of the city, by my new computer that will only intermittently turn on, by kids growing out of shoes faster than I can […]

St Peter’s

I visited St Peter’s Bascillica while in Rome. It’s a place that’s on the list of places to visit while in Rome, and as such it was on my list. I’ve been feeling like I want to be a believer lately, so Vatican City had some draw. Catholicism has all the issues Catholicism has, but […]

Google God

Let me just say first off that I’m a big fan of personal technology. I got my first iPhone in 2009, I’m now on my third. It’s my primary computer, communicator, notebook, word processor, camera. It’s basically an extension of my hand. I’ve written plays on it, created and sent Christmas cards. I’m writing this […]
