Mending Reality Released

Today I delivered many copies of the literary / art journal that has taken me several months to produce. But it’s finally here: Mending Reality: creativity towards change. The process of making a new journal has been highly educational for me. Aside from understanding the editorial and layout processes better, I’ve learned quite a bit […]

Mending Reality

I’m planning a new publication called Mending Reality: Creativity Towards Change to be released online and in print. “Mending” evokes the act of fixing or healing. “Reality” refers to our cultural, political, and economic systems. Humans create the status quo of violence and injustice. I want to have a conversation about changing and healing these […]

Strawberry Jam

In June, Connie made jam out of the strawberries she grows at the front of the house. The strawberries themselves have an intense flavor and sweetness – quite unlike the bland half-fist-sized white-in-the-middle mutants they sell in stores under the label “strawberries”. Connie’s strawberries grow into a variety of shapes. Some of them have little […]

Letter to Maj and Lu

Winter Solstice 09 Maj and Lu, Hope this finds you staying warm and happy. Saturday, Connie and I went to Tuba Christmas in Akron. Have you ever gone to that? It’s a free concert with hundreds of tubists playing carols. A deep, warm sound. People sing along. Tucker Jolly has been conducting and organizing Akron’s […]

Earths In the Multiverses

There are several scientific theories now dealing with the concept of multiple universes, or multiverses. These ideas force a rethinking of our place in the context of it all. (I just realized that I don’t know the new scientific term for “it all”.) As if the vast reaches of observable space weren’t hard enough to […]
