No One’s Coming for You

About two years ago, I was teaching yoga at 5:45 am.  I'm not what people would consider "a morning person." I don't naturally get up that early or particularly like it.  But at the time, it seemed like a good idea.  I felt about teaching early morning the way professional dog poop picker-uppers feel about … Continue reading No One’s Coming for You

Return to Form

I've missed you. I've missed writing. I didn't think I had anything to write about.  I did. I was wondering if people even read anymore.  I wasn't reading anymore.

One thing good about the app's death reminders is that they had reminded me that getting upset over not getting a house is … Continue reading WeCroak Day 3: You can’t take it with you

WeCroak, Day 2: A Touching Career

So, I know in the last post I said that I was doing my WeCroak app inspired writings everyday, and you haven't seen much.  That's because it's all been taking place on my email list.  I'll put them up here on a three day delay.  Just so you know, I tend to take out certain … Continue reading WeCroak, Day 2: A Touching Career
