On The Loop Trail In The Hoh Rainforest With An Umbrella

My boots were embossing the muddy trail alongside hers and from what I could tell, there was nary a bug in the rainforest. A steady breeze off the river found its way through the gnarly web of braches covered in chenille blankets of moss, and a chill hung in the air, […]

Ottawa

We were beat tired. Tired like the punchlines from her kid sister’s joke book. The two of us, dad and daughter. We’d completely run out of steam. After a long night and early morning of driving… After 75 minutes of hurling ourselves around a frozen curling court… After hours spent […]

The Woman With The Cigarette On The Beach

The phone dings, that familiar modern sound alerting us of something new, cutting through the hiss of onions sauteing in hot oil in the kitchen, breaking the still silence of a bedroom at night or, in this case, emanating from the lone back pocket of knit shorts with red and […]

How Craft Root Beers Are Like Van Halen’s Brown M&M’s

The tale of Van Halen’s backstage candy demand is the stuff of legend and in the decades since it occurred has often acted as a kind of stand-in synonym for a highfalutin diva lifestyle, but if you believe that faulty parallel — NO BROWN M&M’s = DIVA — then you […]
