Road Notes: Savannah

Savannah was many things. Much more than the Spanish moss I went there to see. It was a waterfront, with a wide open park. People sat upon the benches, twisting palms in their hands, calling out to us. The muddy river wound lazily by, only interrupted by the ferry.  A Child circled a monument of […]

Overcoming Chaos

To say this weekend has been rough is an understatement. My instinct is to keep things private. To discuss things is to let that wall down. To let people in is to show weakness.

Fighting Expectation

  I am 28 years old.  There are certain things that are expected. I should have a house, and a successful career. Hard as I try, I struggle with these. In the last year, both of these things were within reach. Yet the goal in sight, I began to doubt myself. A steady corporate career didn’t […]

secrets of the desert

They had been driving down the highway further into the west. They had come out of the Rocky Mountains and were made it across the Utah border. The day was coming to a close as Mary pulled of the highway. “why don’t we try to find a campground?” Emma said “ looked at the map […]
