I N S P I R E D

Do you know what it feels like in those first few seconds of waking consciousness, when your eyes slit and peel open for the first time after a night of sleep; and in those fleeting milliseconds you are presented with so many pathways? I will go back to sleep. I will...

The Reflective Waters of December

I’ve begun speed reading Cormac McCarthy. People have told me for some time now – you know, just people here and there – that I should read him. Something about the way I speak or the general subject matter I seem drawn to or perhaps refer to now and then....
