There’s a Grandma-shaped whole in the world

My grandmother died today. I don’t really know how to express how it makes me feel. We knew it was coming. I got to say goodbye. There was no chance that she would recover. But yesterday there was a woman occupying space in the world and today there is not. My mom’s mom passed this […]

Clark Fork: The Endless River That Waters The Mouth of Hell

This weekend, we visited family up at Priest Lake (it was awesome, and if I make time, I’ll write more on it later). Heading home on I-90, we kept driving over Clark Fork in the middle of the night. So often, in fact, that my wife started cursing the signs as an indicator that we […]

#BattleshipLoveBlog

Last night I decided to watch BATTLESHIP, which is a mostly terrible movie that is full of big, stupid fun. I knew almost immediately that I was going to love hating this movie so I decided to do an impromptu live blog on App.net of my thoughts as I watched it. I’ve reposted the results […]

My world in slow motion

I picked up the iPhone 5S the other day and I took the time to play with the slow-mo features today. This is the result. One frustrating issue I’ve had is that it seems impossible to actually export the slow motion clips unless you either email them or upload them to one of the sharing […]

Reflections from a booth in a diner on the first day of September

I sit at a table in the diner and watch my family eat. A booth, actually. I sit in a booth at the diner and watch my family eat. My daughter asks for more fries. She uses her hands, signing “more” and then “fries”. She’s very precise when she does it, which I always find […]

Delayed Sadness

I wrote this over two weeks ago, the day after my show for the Fringe Festival closed. I was in the middle of something and didn’t have time to finish my thoughts. However, I felt it was important to mark the feelings I had after the show was over, if not for my own memories […]

“Multitudes” opens in less than a week!

So the show that my wife and I are in opens in less than a week. I’m excited, though I’m a little terrified, as well. Anyway, I’m really hoping that some of you can come and see the show. Here’s a flyer that our producer put together to promote the show. You can also get […]

Returning to the stage

So, yesterday I had my first read-through since college. Since college. For those of you that don’t realize it, I graduated with a major in theatre with hopes and dreams of being a filmmaker. I’ve long been a writer and actor and had dreams of being a director, as well. Alas, life does not always […]

A sample morning

The phone rang. It was 8:17 and it was my first phone call of the day. I picked up the phone. “Tech office.” “I need your help troubleshooting a computer problem,” began the teacher on the line. “I can’t get the projector to work.” “Did you restart it?” “Yeah, it didn’t fix it.” I rubbed […]
