This Age {Just Write}

I’m participating in {Just Write} an exercise in Free Writing. Details below. “My credit score is great.” “Got a loan for a car.” “Up all night, and there was no alcohol involved.” “Going to to the Doctor, baby is sick.” “I want to settle down. Start a family.” “I lost the baby.” “I’m expecting, again.” … Continue reading

This Fall {Just Write}

“You’re quitting? You’ve got to be kidding me.” Yes. My last day is the Wednesday before Thanksgiving. I’ll be out of here. Gone.

I’m not into phrases, … Continue reading

Seang Taow {just write}

Another exercise in Just Writing. Riding the Seang Taow is so natural now. I wonder at the fact that I stumbled through my first ride, getting off sooner than necessary, asking the price, dripping sweat on my first day to work. I climbed on this morning, bypassing the normal mototaxi ride, happy to save 30 … Continue reading
