My birthday started at the Urgent Care. 

I was pretty annoyed. Not only was I at Urgent Care on my birthday, but I was there two days before treatment. Because that’s what a person wants to do 48 hours before an infusion- go to the doctor for something else. 

But there I...

Dear Davey, 

Can’t believe it’s the year 2020 and you’re turning 42! One thing about the c word is that it takes away your fear of birthdays. Instead of, “Ugh, I’m 42” it’s like, “YAS! Forty fucking two!!!!!” 

Man this year has flown by. Feels like only minutes ago it wa...

My first professional acting job was at place called Unto These Hills. It was an outdoor drama in Cherokee, NC. I was one of the dancers. It was either that or be an Actor/Technician, and I’d rather wear a dance belt than use a wrench any day of the week. 

Since it was...

Jaimie took off her bathing suit and stood naked in front of me. 

“Look at me,” she said. 

Never one to be told twice, I looked at her and my mouth fell open.

“Holy moly,” I said as I pulled out my phone. “I’ve got to take a picture of this.” 

Now normally when Jaimie is n...

As the elevator doors closed I kept saying to myself, don’t be too nice, don’t be too nice, don’t be too nice. I saw the woman I needed to talk to. Instead of going straight there, I took a walk around the lobby. Don’t be too nice. Don’t be too nice. 

I stood in front o...

I was in the middle of the woods yesterday in Paris Mountain State Park, sitting on a picnic table next to a creek. This particular picnic table next to the creek is quickly becoming one of my favorite little spots. It's slightly off the trail, and you have to really l...

And sometimes, talking dirty to someone comes to life. 

When I’m making out with some one, I tend to be a little chatty. Sorry to any relatives who might be reading this. Not that it should surprise anyone, considering I make my living teaching and writing blogs and per...

Brit Hume said today that Trump’s comments were “nativist, xenophobic, counterfactual and politically stupid. But they simply do not meet the standard definition of racist, a word so recklessly flung around these days that its actual meaning is being lost."

This was the...

Yesterday morning, after Jaimie and I finished our Sunday pancakes, I read the latest tweet storm from our President. It made me so irate that I've barely been able to think about anything else. I tried to meditate, I tried to take my walk in the woods, but every thirt...

I got a letter today. 

I know, totally weird. 

It was out of the blue. I wasn't expecting it. Is anyone expecting a letter in 2019? If so I can't tell if that is saddest thing I've ever head or the most beautiful. Definitely no where in between. 

The letter was from a wom...
