It’s winter in Colorado today. Tomorrow it could be 50 degrees, but today a layer of thick cotton-like snow covers the blemishes of winter foliage. Summer always returns, as it will in a few months, with smells of backyard barbecues, pine trees and dirt. Right now, the cool air on my skin and in my […]
They Might Be Giants “Destiny guides our fortunes more favorably than we could have expected. Look there, Sancho Panza, my friend, and see those thirty or so wild giants, with whom I intend to do battle and kill each and all of them, so with their stolen booty we can begin to enrich ourselves.

My ear plugs aren’t working. Can I push them farther in my ear? Will they get stuck? They’ll send me to the ER. I don’t want to ride in an ambulance. Why can’t I fall asleep. I’m tired. I wish they’d turn the music off. Oh no, already! My tent shake wake up call. It’s […]
