Less Than 36 Hours in Omaha

February 23, 2020

I went to Omaha last weekend was for the Trek Up the Tower race, but there were other parts to my trip, too. Not tons of other parts, since I was only in town for one full day, but it was a fun weekend getaway, and I even spent a little bit of time in Iowa, too!

That’s me straddling the Nebraska/Iowa state line. More on that later… let’s tackle this chronologically! Read the rest of this entry »

My Christmas in Pictures

December 31, 2018

I’m back from a week in Michigan for Christmas, and spent lots of great quality time with family. I was determined to stay focused on my health and fitness all week, and made lots of wonderful choices, and some not-so-wonderful ones, too. I’ll get into all of that, but first… SANTA!

That’s Lynn on the right. Our families have been Read the rest of this entry »

May 18, 2018

If you wanted to see some hail in May, you should’ve been in Colorado last weekend. Last Saturday evening, during a brief but violent storm, it hailed pebbles of ice.

ART SWAP! I Drew a Maze For a Friend, and Wait Until You See What He Created For Me

May 25, 2017

I’m a poet’s muse! I did an art swap with my friend Josh Lefkowitz from college. He’s an accomplished, award-winning, published poet, and I draw mazes (that win awards in my own head). So we did a trade. He wrote a poem for me, and I drew a maze for him.

The poem is incredible. This isn’t some nursery rhyme or greeting card pablum, it’s, like, literature. Wanna read it? Read the rest of this entry »
