Hi! Howdy. ‘Sup. HOLLER! It’s crazy-snowy in Boulder. I’ve been spending a lot of time with family and with my nearest & dearest. I’ve been working on projects, working on business, working on my thesis. I’ve been working on myself. I’ve had challenging, vulnerable conversations. I’ve had life-giving conversations. (Those two types of conversations usually come hand-in-hand.) I’ve been writing and drawing and dancing. For the first time in many years, I am really, really loving winter. And! AND. I will be launching my spanky-new business site on Friday. YAYZORGZ!
Reverb is a Verb
I’m missing the intensity of story-telling and community of December’s #reverb10. But, reverb is not gone!

Let me know if you respond to it, okay? I’d love to see your response.

Interview with Pablo Neruda
This interview with Pablo Neruda on The Paris Review is just…beautiful. Neruda is one of my favorite poets.
A verse from Neruda’s poem, “Poetry”:
I did not know what to say, my mouth
had no way
my eyes were blind,
and something started in my soul,
fever or forgotten wings,
and I made my own way,
and I wrote the first faint line,
faint, without substance, pure
of someone who knows nothing,
and suddenly I saw
with arrows, fire and flowers,
the winding night, the universe.
And this, because it cracks me up:
