souvenirs, novelties, party tricks


  • The new novel is coming along nicely and undergoing progressive shifts and evolutions. I am pleased. I am doing more percolating than actual writing this last week or so, but that’s how I always work. 
  • I hate VW buses. I have my reasons. 
  • I picked 4.5 pounds of blueberries today while my dogs ate a fair amount off the low branches of the bushes. We barely made a dent in this year’s crop. 
  • East coast thunderstorms are no joke. 


  • Korean dumplings
  • really good reading glasses
  • memories attached to pleasant scents
  • songbirds 
  • the paper edition of the New York Times
  • fake names
  • fresh, blank notebooks
  • Joe Biden
  • fireworks fireworks fireworks


  • shitty reading glasses
  • global tragedy fatigue 
  • chronic fabulists 
  • bands who talk too much between songs when playing live
  • unsettling dreams that haunt the next day

    Loved Driftwood! So well written, beautiful story. Felt a connection being raised in So. Cal., was funny to learn you are now in SC. My family and I moved here two years ago and love it. Please keep writing.


    1. I am so glad you liked the book! Thank you!
      That is really weird that we both made the California to South Carolina move. I love it here, too. I still miss California, though (or rather the idea of it or maybe what it was decades ago…).
      Thank you again for the kind words!
