in which there is a little reframing and a short list

It’s beautiful outside today. I have the windows cracked, and somewhere in the distance I can hear a marching band practicing— or at least, I can hear their drum corps. It’s both nostalgic and vaguely military, muddling together two distinct segments of my life in the strangest ways. Yeah, I was that nerd, before the combat boots, before the languages,…

in which we talk about fraud and feelings

There’s a tenderloin going in the slow cooker, I have a marshmallow root salve bubbling on the double boiler, both dogs are gently snoring in various corners of the living room, and there is a good chunk of time between now and my next business call.

So I’ve been working on this post about a meditation technique I wanted to share with everyone, but that’s still in the hopper— it’ll have to hold.

We received a last- minute invitation to vend and Gryphon, the elves and I threw everything we could find into the SG van and ran off to New York to have a mini- adventure. It was completely unexpected and absolutely fantastic. I find Maryland autumns to be a little lackluster, and…
