What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've collected a lot of stories involving road trip calamities. To my great luck, a heroic good samaritan has generally surfaced mid-calamity and so I'm here to tell the appreciative tale. Like, over dinner.

I'm a big fan of small(er) cities, and love to sit on the porch in the evening with a drink. I'm lucky enough to have a job I really love. I tend to wake up happy.

I find brunch to be a contrived and slightly depressing custom. I'd just as soon drink mimosas while painting a barn. On a related note: I love helping friends run errands.

When I was a kid and visited my stepdad at his magazine's office, I couldn't believe that he spent the entire day "chatting and tapping". Where was the work?! The jig was up. When I was older, I would call him at the office and say, "Hey, how's the chatting going? Tough day of tapping?"

Well here I am many years later and I do a lot of chatting and tapping. I'd like to measure up to my nine-year old self's sense of what life could be.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
My memory often impresses people.

So I guess I'm saying, take it personally if I forget your name.

If you loved any of the below books, we'll have plenty to talk about.

I'm not trying to pretentiously signify that I *only* read. But I love to read, and if I were on a train and I saw a guy sitting there reading any of these books, I'd sit down next to him. So, yeah, it's a better indicator than most.

The Moviegoer, The Things They Carried, Yesterday's Weather, The Good Soldier, The Heart is a Lonely Hunter, A Lesson Before Dying, All the King's Men, Waiting, A Long Long Way, The Beauty and the Sorrow: An Intimate History of WW1, Lost in the Cosmos, Regeneration, Canada, Let Us Now Praise Famous Men, A Testament of Youth, Lowboy, The Right Stuff, Geography of a Horse Dreamer, Richard Wilbur's "The Writer", any and all Springsteen lyrics
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
why & what & how we read; the memorialization processes that took place after WW1; how the digital universe is affecting our sweet, frazzled brains; whether I will ever again eat anything so delicious as that chicken w/ chopped peppers at the place in Chengdu

This whole thing is utterly bizarre. I'm not comfortable with it, really.

Mostly because romance has generally helped to quiet the parts of my brain that categorize, and that's been pretty great. You get it.

But here I am wandering in the world of algorithms and pithy bios. Cause, hey?
