Trying to Get it Write
Every day carries the potential to bring the experience of heaven; have the courage to expect good from it.
John McQuiston II - Always We Begin Again.
Welcome to my website!
I have always written essays to help me understand the world. Well, not always. I started to write essays to try to understand the world after I was instructed to "use my words" to solve problems as opposed to the more immediate physical means I was employing, Writing slowed me down and allowed me to see the humor and odd justice in most situations. Through writing, I realized that I had a better tool for understanding the world and getting it right.
In addition to essays, I am revising my first novel. If you are not a writer, trust me, this is not the glamorous part of the process. Actually, I have yet to experience the glamorous part of the writing process. I have had, however, some weirdly euphoric experiences when the characters in my novel stopped being so cryptic about what they were doing.
During book revisions, I will be posting new essays and updating my blog. And if you come back to keep reading, I'll keep trying to get it write.
All the best -
Thanksgiving and Reasons to be Grateful

Thanksgiving is probably my favorite holiday, although this has not always been true. It turns out that I really enjoy the time to reflect on and appreciate the many blessings in my life. My younger self would be surprised that this is the case. There are so many people who I am grateful to know and spend time with, If you are reading this, you are likely someone who I love, so thank you. And even though Trinity can't read this, I am grateful for her too.
If you want to get a sense of how things were before Thanksgiving became my favorite holiday, please check out my new Thanksgiving essay. And then check back because there are some Christmas essays waiting in the wings to share.
