Yesterday afternoon I recalled a song that I heard a week or two prior; it's a song I heard before, and hadn't heard it in a long time. I remember that I really enjoyed the song, but since hearing it, yesterday was the first time I thought of it since. And a tiny bit of … Continue reading The Quest To Remember a Song

It's not a matter of lack of time for me, but motivation. Right now, as I type this out on my … Continue reading Writing is hard

I suppose it's more accurate to say I don't think of these things as "resolutions", because to me the notion of trying to do something new or different having to start in January and not at any point in the year … Continue reading 2021 Resolutions
Lately something the feeling of playing a quick handheld video game has struck me now and then. I used to have a small handful of games on my phone, but deleted them a long time ago. I wasn't playing them, and they didn't hold my interest. I don't have any fancy new platforms like the … Continue reading A Few Good Games
A thought popped into my head as I poured a new non-alcoholic IPA (Athletic Brewing Company's Run Wild IPA) into an old Innis & Gunn beer glass: I used to be "known" as a beer lover. If you weren't sure what to buy for me, the easiest choice would be to find some craft beer … Continue reading What Happens When Something You Enjoy is Taken Away?
