The Sculptor

He was a driftwood sculptor, and quite a good one at that. But he’d been lacking in inspiration lately, and it’d been months since he’d produced anything of consequence. However, his luck changed one fateful day while walking along the beach. He spied a piece of driftwood that immediately caught his attention. He picked it […]

In Defense of Pain

I’ve been in pain for about 17 years now. It started with a bout of lower back pain when I was in my mid-twenties.

This is exactly why I don’t make resolutions. […]

Bunnicide: A Tale of Murder and Mayhem

Kaia and I were enjoying a nice, long walk last night. We have a ton of bunnies in our neighborhood, and we both discovered that she loves chasing after them. Fortunately, she’s on a leash and can’t actually catch them. And yes, I call them bunnies, not rabbits. Deal with it. Or you’ll be next. (That’s […]
