About the Blogger
However you found me, here I am. The blogosphere is filled with once-upon-a-time English majors, those who haunt bookshops, and many just looking for some sort of stimulation, creatively, intelligently, or personally. I once stumbled across truly creative bloggers and their posts reminded me of why, I too, had fallen in love with writing. It’s my own personal form of yoga (I hate actual yoga), a time to reflect and contemplate, urging myself to write and keep track of my thoughts, maybe even inspiring someone else.
At the risk of sounding cliché, I’d like to say that this blog is a place where time gets slower, murkier, for me. I recall sitting in Ann Arbor, Michigan, surrounded by the smell of books and lecture halls, musty fabric from the theater seats, and the slightly burnt dust dispelling from the slide projector. My mind wakes up. I sit up a little straighter, sip my coffee, and remember why I fell in love with with little bits and pieces of the world around me. Then I start to form a picture, ever so vaguely, of what the future could be like.
You won’t find only one topic here. To say I’m interested in a lot of things would be an incredible understatement. Through my own background as an English major, an Art Historian, a traveler, a make-believe race car driver, a musician, a writer, a chef, and a friend, topics emerge. This blog is as much about the past as it is the present and the future, and in my search for remembering the things I once loved, I find new passions and a new direction.
I love the Oxford Comma. I think that good writing becomes better with humor. A moment may be defined by its semantics. Each word counts; each should inspire. I pull stories from history, from language. My imagination crosses state lines. I seek new perspectives and subtle ironies. I explore the things I don’t know and I’ll always share my choices. I’m a photo-junkie, a music-hound, a dork of all things digital.
Ask me about my recipes on Pinterest, my new favorite craft beer, or how many miles I’ve driven my Chevy, “Diego,” since last weekend.
As always, I’d love to hear from you.
