August 22, 2019 It’s a slender creature with a long and flowing tail. Does It really understand what Its purpose is besides surfacing every once in a while to spit truths? Not entirely, no. It just knows three things to be true. Those three things are: the mermaid’s passion for science, its existence in the […]
August 21, 2019 My childhood bedroom holds the unique status of being able to induce lucid dreaming for myself. Time and time again, I am able to summon up some stored common sense and call my subconscious out for tampering with reality. Often, when the realization strikes, I am left to deal with the aftermath […]
August 20, 2019 Something about being lost in the wilderness both frightens and inspires. Take it from me. It’s our first full day in the secret treasure that is Mark’s AirBnB 30 minutes outside of Cortez. An untouched wilderness sits just beyond a brown picket fence. Just beyond a well-manicured lawn and thoughtfully placed decor […]
August 19, 2019 We left the northern corner of Colorado today. Rising early to catch the sunrise, we watched with our coffees before hitting the road. The southern corner now awaits us and, as I drive, I reflect. Here are the things I learned in Walden, Colorado.

August 16, 2019 Disney archetypes. The day before we left for our grand adventure into the untamed wilderness of Western Colorado, we spent the evening with my cousin and her young daughter. This new relative of mine was a cute and babbling mini human with a language only really understood by her mother and us […]
August 15, 2019 A call to the wild. I reached it. The point of no return. My dependency on the goings-on behind my phone screen reached levels I’m embarrassed to admit to. Hours of precious time were instead wasted for the short-term pleasures that existed online. This day was long awaited; the one that would […]
August 14, 2019 For Charlotte. We sometimes think life comes easy. We construct a fabulous vision in our minds for what our future will look like. The details, from the grandest to the most minute, can sweep us away into a fantasy and the time spent pouring ourselves into that will inevitably convince us of […]
August 13, 2019 We grow up. Years take from us the liveliness of youth, the wonder of a world undiscovered. Every day that stretches by is another day that saps a mysticism from our surroundings and drives us further into cynical understanding. Must it be that way?
August 12, 2019 I don’t think I am yet at the point where I create content that appeals to the masses but in this moment I don’t really care all that much. Writing is still something I do for fun and the mentality shift from fun to hustle is a slow but steady transition. Anyways, […]
