This Is My Body (Day Ten)

There’s something very grounding about spending an entire day walking. Obviously you’re more connected, literally, to the earth, but the connection goes deeper than that. Little, if anything, passes by without notice. With enough time, nothing recedes into the background. You have time to actually notice everything. There’s also something physiologically renewing about walking all [Read More…]

Don’t Think Too Hard; You’ll Kill God (Day Nine)

Amy and I covered Los Angeles on foot today. This morning we walked from Marina Del Rey to the Santa Monica Pier by way of Venice Beach, stopping for coffee on the pier. After lunch we walked over to a street called Abbot Kinney, which has been rated (by whom, I’m not sure) as the [Read More…]

There was a good chance he’d need surgery in utero or immediately after being born, and [Read More…]

A Hundred Hidden Kisses (Day Five)

We headed west toward Las Vegas this morning; chasing daylight toward the coast, leaving the kids in the care of grandma and grandpa.

Clowns, Bad Haircuts and Dreams of Disaster (Day Three)

“I had a weird dream last night,” Amy said, “that our house in Pueblo was burning down. I called the fire department and instead of firefighters, they sent a whole bunch of clowns on unicycles. “I told them they needed to put out the fire, but they just kept riding around in circles on their [Read More…]
