currently i live on an old sailboat in southeast Alaska. i wander around. i listen to music. i ride a bike. i drink water commingled with tinctured plants. i like hawthorn a lot. i spent most of my adult life distracted by drink and drug, now i do not. i believe in impermanence and kindness; i struggle with expressing myself kindly and am terrified by death. i write as a way to calm my nervous system, as a way to try to form lips around the astounding beauty of these lives we were gifted. it is a struggle. thanks for sharing some of your time with me. thanks for being you. thanks for being.
