I’m Kind of a Terrible Person When it Comes to Monks Apparently

I’m Kind of a Terrible Person When it Comes to Monks Apparently

I just wanted to let you all know (with the hopes that this will make you feel good about yourselves) that I wanted more than anything to give the squirt gun of justice to a Tibetan Monk last night. While he lovingly addressed the crowd about compassion. For those of you who are unfamiliar with theContinue Reading

A Body Story

A Body Story

My body is my best friend. My body is my ally, co-conspirator, lover, protector, solace, foundation, and my home while I’m here.  I don’t care much for calling my body a “meat suit”, using it as a shame generator, container, or perpetrator. I don’t like to deride its imperfections. It took a long time toContinue Reading

Authenticity is a Moving Target

Authenticity is a Moving Target

Years ago, a psychologist said to me, “I’m going to help you be authentic.” And I was like, “Fuck you. I work incredibly hard at being authentic.” And then I heard myself. Game. Changed. Also, game leveled up. I had worked incredibly hard at *identifying* with authenticity. It’s not at all the same thing. TheContinue Reading

Evolution is Exhausting. But You Totally Got This.

Evolution is Exhausting. But You Totally Got This.

    Integrity gives you bona fide game. I hope we all know this by now. It takes a lot of energy to be a person of integrity. Which, one might argue should just be “person”. Integrity being inherent in humanness would be awesome. For the sake of this argument, and the future of ourContinue Reading

Make Your Heart a Bigger Container

Make Your Heart a Bigger Container

    You know how when something meaningful crosses your awareness and all of a sudden you see or hear about it everywhere? And you don’t really know if it’s some weird magical message from a Martian scientist or if you’re just noticing something that’s actually been there all along? That is exactly what’s beenContinue Reading

Safety + Sanctuary For The Humans

Safety + Sanctuary For The Humans

Hello and welcome to 2015, you guys. Here’s to hoping it’s found you riding high, yet stable enough to have some clear ideas about how you want to spend it. As those of you who have read anything I’ve ever written already are aware, me and stability are kind of at odds most of theContinue Reading

Mandatory Merriment

Mandatory Merriment

I was sentenced to serve two years in Federal Prison the day before Christmas Eve. The wooden rocking horse with the yarn hair was already ordered, delivered, and stashed in the attic. My son, Aidan, was a year and a half, and it was his first year to be even remotely cognizant of the conceptContinue Reading

My Accidental, Albeit, Metaphorical Holiday Boner Promotion

My Accidental, Albeit, Metaphorical Holiday Boner Promotion

Attention to detail is… A pinnacle of resume sainthood and adult behavior. The magic words to get the job done. The wet dream* of grammar hammers everywhere. The reason for the delete key. People love that phrase, don’t they? Everything about it screams RESPONSIBILITY and MATURITY. Like everyone else in my known universe, I’ve writtenContinue Reading

Birds are Assholes & Other Camping-Inspired Wisdom

Birds are Assholes & Other Camping-Inspired Wisdom

For the first time in a couple of decades, I went camping. Tent camping. In the woods. Like, real, no showering, fire-building, squat to pee, flashlight camping. There were hatchets. And wool socks. I wore a hat to bed. I’ll admit there was some desperation involved. Things have been happening personally and culturally that hadContinue Reading

Why I Won’t Be Praying For Patience

Why I Won’t Be Praying For Patience

  I stopped praying for patience a long time ago. Seriously. No more. I used to pray for this virtue in some kind of misguided attempt to become a sweet, quiet, and utterly patient pile of grace. The polar opposite of the fiery mass of intensity that I more likely lean towards. I should beContinue Reading
