This blog has been silent for a long time. The longest time since its inception, actually. Why? Because I recently experienced a horrific loss. A loss so vast, and so debilitating, that I have barely been able to get out of bed each day — let alone work or write. But lately, the story has […]
I took this while camping last weekend at San Clemente State Beach. As soon as I did, one of my best friends said to me: “Op, there’s a Meatless Monday photo.” So, Ted, this one’s for you! PS. This photo is unedited; I took it using ProHDR, one of my fave new smartphone photography apps. This […]

When’s the last time you saw the stars? Like, really, saw the stars? And pointed out constellations? I hope it was yesterday. But in reality, it was probably a lot longer ago than that. Too long. It had been for me. Up until this past weekend, which I had the pleasure of spending in Joshua […]
