A Safe Place to Land

This post is titled, A Safe Place to Land, in tribute to the Sara Bareilles song from her album, Amidst the Chaos (2019).

Reflections on a Year in My Life- A Holiday Offering

Our collective “situation” has merely made my interrogation of the topic somewhat moreContinue reading “If I should die, before WE wake…”

Dreams from Quarantine

I fall asleep on the couch each night while trying to watch some escapist film meant to help me lay down the weight of this infected world which was heavy enough before we released Coronavirus from the wild like a tiger we thought we could tame with loved ones I know and those I don’tContinue reading “Dreams from Quarantine”

Welcome!

Global climate change, pandemic disease, and social disintegration have coalesced at once, making humanity’s future devastatingly uncertain.
