The beginning of a new year, by definition, brings a lot of new. One of my favorites is a new planner. There’s just something special about putting pen to paper to plan and track your year.

The end of the year is a time of reflection on the past and planning for the future. Of course, that means we sometimes neglect the present. For these final days of 2022, I hope that you are able to be in the moment, to be where you are, as you are.
A Moment to Adjust
This past weekend, Daylight Saving Time (DST) ended in the U.S. That means on Sunday morning we woke to a world that was very much the same, but also an hour earlier than we expected. This changing of the clocks combined with the changing of the seasons means our days feel a little shorter andContinue reading “A Moment to Adjust”
If you would like to see humanity at its best and worst, I highly recommend a trip on public transit during rush hour. Throw in a far-reaching service disruption and prepare yourself for a show.

A few weeks ago, I stumbled spectacularly. This was a literal stumble and not a metaphorical one. As is often the case, my head was in one place and my feet were in another. As most successful walkers will tell you, ideally you want your head and feet in the same general vicinity.
Is there anything better than returning to work the day after a long weekend dedicated to the workforce? Yes. There are many (so many) things better than that, but here we are.

There are few things more inspiring or intimidating than a blank page for a writer. Recently, I’ve found myself on the intimidating side of that spectrum. It’s not due to a shortage of ideas. I have countless drafts and a meandering train of thoughts to back me up on that claim.
The current conversation surrounding the reversal of Roe v. Wade has been on my mind a lot over the past few weeks.
