I haven’t written anything here in a while, and it’s at a time like this I’m always tempted to write an “I’m back!” kind of post. Truth be told, though, I’m kind of sick of doing that. For one thing, I didn’t really go anywhere; I just didn’t write anything. It also seems sort of… Read More


I’ve been keeping a relatively low profile on social media lately. I have a few different reasons for this. One is that I have been weathering one of the worst seasons of depression I have ever faced, and I haven’t had the words for how to express that. Even when I did think of something… Read More


I really wasn’t sure I wanted to do this anymore. Actually, I’m not sure if “wanted to” is exactly the right phrase. Maybe I should say “could” do this anymore. I wrote a post yesterday for the first time in a long while. I’m still not exactly sure why I did it. I think I just… Read More

I only sort of hinted at what can cause this type of behavior, though, probably because I didn’t want to admit I had it hiding in myself, too. It’s envy. Here is a comment a friend of mine left on Facebook… Read More

When I was sick two weekends ago, I decided to catch up on some movies I had really wanted to see but couldn’t interest anyone else in seeing with me. One of those movies was Nebraska, the 2013 much-lauded comedy/drama starring Bruce Dern and Will Forte. Overall, I thought the film was pretty good, and I… Read More
