I’m Not Thankful For…

November 25, 2010


Dear Friends, Today is Thanksgiving and like many I have been thinking about all of the things that I am thankful for as I prepare to eat and fellowship with friends here in Portland. I am thankful for Portland, a city that has revived the soul in me, and taught me that the world is […]

Another Confession: I’m A Networking Narcissist

July 28, 2010


(photo by David Hayward) I’ve kinda fallen off the twitter/blogging map for a while and I wanted to share a few thoughts about why… Just in case you were wondering. A few months ago my agent and I had a really honest talk. She told me that connecting with people was a great thing, and […]

God Is the Needle & I’m the LP…

June 3, 2010


Hawthorne Blvd, a street filled with coffee shops, bookstores, and the messenger-bag wearing Bohemians that consistently brave the never-ending Portland drizzle.

Another 3am Confession…

Not to mention that I’m getting used to the higher elevation, the weather, and once again living on the third floor at a place. Bigger boys don’t like stairs. It’s […]

Countdown: 4 Days (Continued)

April 20, 2010


I spent the morning with my dad. It was a good time, and I got to tell him a lot that I felt I needed to before I leave. It’s amazing how forgiveness can foster healing within a relationship, and it’s nice to see that healing in a relationship that has been so strained over […]

The Day I Killed Jesus…

April 4, 2010


It’s Easter. 3:03am. And I’m writing this because I wanted write down a few thoughts. I wanted to repent of something, actually. I am guilty of spiritual pride. Not the kind of pride that says I have everything right, rather the kind that says if you live by different standards it is my place to […]
