A nighttime poem, written in a moment, about that moment, trying to make a way back to creativity and words.
Life in the Middle
We achieved a long-time-comin' goal and now I'm afraid it's not good enough. On May 29th, 2020, Anthony and I wrapped up May's budget and made our final debt payment on the student loan. WE'RE DEBT FREE! It was surreal. It still is to a certain extent. We told our landlords because they were our … Continue reading Life in the Middle

WARNING: Don’t Do Life Solo!
I'm a bit of a sporadic blogger. I am a sporadic blogger at best. After I wrote about God being weird, I overthought my review post of A Thousand Splendid Suns. (I'm pretty sure I cried about it. Here's my current review of it: just go read it). And Anthony and I decided I needed to … Continue reading WARNING: Don’t Do Life Solo!
God is so weird! (in the best way)
"giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ," Ephesians 5:20. Anthony and I filed our taxes over the weekend and ended up owing almost $200 (we kept pressing the "explain this" icon on Turbo Tax, but the explanation never seemed to be complete). We were … Continue reading God is so weird! (in the best way)
Bob & God
"I love details. And lists. And plans. Routines. I love crossing things off. Which is why I've finally (see: again) planned out a daily schedule for myself and given myself goals for this month. Two living, breathing, attainable goals. ("Intentionality, people!") But there comes a time when I've planned too much and made too many lists and taken too many notes, sat through too many classes, live events, and webinars..."
