15-20 miles

I had dinner at my house with friends and two things came up. The first was that exercise makes us feel great. The second was that a friend of ours is going back to Africa. He told us that the happiest people he knows can fit everything they own under their bed. This brought me […]

Thought mid stream.

Knowing that I can’t want you and knowing that you want me too plops me squarely in the most difficult situation I have faced. The time is off, but it always will be and never is. Will it ever make more sense? Does anything else exist, or are we deceiving ourselves? Perhaps everything from the […]

I just finished watching the reds game at a bar with Harry, Jen, and Kurt. I’m tired and I’m ready to leave town. Zach won’t get off work until 1:30 am so I’ve got a few hours to kill. I figure I’ll read on the stoop. Over The Rhine has really cleaned up in the […]
