When the Market Opens

By | November 30th, 2018|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , |0 Comments

Out of the corner of my eye I see them. By rote, my feet steer to the table housing the red, brown, green and gold painted balsa wood configurations. I walk directly up to the festive card table in the middle of the green house filled with Poinsettias. I know people are milling. I see no [...]

A Glimmer

By | October 25th, 2018|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , |1 Comment

I drive slowly around the bend away from the upper sports field of my youngest’s middle school. I look up and through the stark framing of a house on a street in an otherwise complete and constructed neighborhood in north Seattle. The upper, third-maybe fourth-story roof line is sharply pitched-maybe an obtuse triangle. Pulling back from [...]

The Weekend of October 6th

Life is trying. Trying to be first, trying to push opinions, answers and consequences. And today it feels like life is Himalayan in its unruly messiness. The scorching upcoming confirmation of Kavanaugh to a seat on the United States highest court of justice. The ashes of women betrayed in every conversation and community space. There is [...]

Scissors are falling out of my hair

By | September 30th, 2018|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , |0 Comments

There is a smell of moss and lumberjack permeating the studio. I dribble in late, sinking quickly into the black leather stylist chair. "I've never seen your hair down" I comment. An ocean of aqua marine locks drape over Siddal's right shoulder. They reach her waist. Suddenly I'm sitting on the porcelain bathtub of my grandmother's [...]

“Ever since I was a little boy…”

"...I wanted to be an entertainer. And you can't be an entertainer without an audience. Thank you for making my dreams come true." Al Milar perches 20 feet above the ground on a steel contraption engineered for street performers. In the musty Vermont  mid summer night he cuts the shape of a mounted superhero clad in [...]

It was a simple gesture

"Hey-can you buy me a coffee?" I tip my head in the direction of the baritone voice replenishing the empty coffee shop. I instantly thrust out my hand with a recently pulled tall Americano.  "I need to drink more water. Please have this." The space is quiet. No words. I skim the front of my sunglasses [...]

How to Leave 5th Grade

By | June 22nd, 2018|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , |0 Comments

Leaving 5th grade is about him. A son. In a new summer. Promoting a new era. Beginning the birth of a Gen Z-er. Leaving for him is freedom.  Walking home alone.  Gathering in friend clusters around the frisbee toss. Around the Magic draft. Around the smartphone. Around the texts. Around the lucky ones allowed Fortnite. Leaving for him [...]

The morning wind in the California high desert sends little slices of ice through your pores. A ruby red taffeta mini skirt dips and dives on the oak hanger. “Hi sweetie-the wind blows everything around here” a voice spills out from behind the red fabric of the storefront. A green faux fur hat perches atop her [...]

The Hush

By | March 26th, 2018|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , |0 Comments

Stepping down into the hallway there is a runway of excitement. There are spring flowers enrobed in butcher paper casually strewn on park benches. The large cardboard signs read ‘L’amour est dans l’air’ and ‘La vie est une fleur dont l’amour est le miel’ while men in tuxes and women in a range of Seattle formal [...]
