Courting Pollinators

This summer, I've been about two things, primarily: Teaching writing and courting pollinators. It's not my first time teaching writing, but courting pollinators is new--and absorbing. (It's also considerably easier to photograph.) 


Sunday by the river

Recently, I went hunting for some old photographs of the town where my father was born--Milton, North Dakota. I found this one--from 1904--on a Pinterest board. I love the photo for lots of reasons. Among other things, it reminds me of the photos in the opening credits of The Leftovers, seasons 2 and 3--one of my all-time favorite shows.


Head over Heels

I didn't do a lot of exciting things this summer, but I did take three different day trips to see my good friend Jim Magruder's new musical, HEAD OVER HEELS, on Broadway. It's hard to describe, but trust me: It's great--well worth the journey. This Vulture review captures the musical's exuberance well.


look alive out there

It's rare for a book to truly make me laugh out loud, especially when I'm unfamiliar with the author. But Sloane Crosley's LOOK ALIVE OUT THERE was so funny/real/human. I was reminded of the book today when I went to renew my domain name. One of the essays in this collection tells the story of what happened when Crosley forgot to renew hers--with disastrous/costly/hilarious results.


Art Deco ice 

Ice art found on my windshield one morning this week.

Art Deco pattern, I thought.

Peacock feather, said a friend.
