Weekly Round-Uppiness

I’ve decided it is high time to reinstate the Weekly Round-Up, for a myriad of reasons: I need to keep better track of my workouts. I like talking about myself.

Total spending?  172.29.  Bazinga.  … Continue reading

On Whispers and Anvils.

My girl Oprah has often said that the universe speaks to us first in whispers. “I say the universe speaks to us, always, first in whispers. And a whisper in your life usually feels like ‘hmm, that’s odd.’ Or, ‘hmm, that doesn’t make any sense.’ Or, ‘hmm, is that right?’ It’s that subtle. And if … Continue reading
