In the words of John Hughes, master movie maker, “Life moves pretty fast. You don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”

A wise man recently reminded me that my life is like a movie, and it’s up to me to decide what kind of movie I’m making. In my t...

Mom was our world. Or rather, she was the sun that we three planets orbited.

In 1979 Mom packed me and my two little sisters in her old Datsun and we hit the road. With pitstops, it took us two days to drive from Woody Creek to Denver, and we camped for the night on Ind...

“A patriot must always be ready to defend his country against his government.” -Edward Abbey

Aah, the Fourth of July: independence, freedom, hamburgers, hot dogs, flags waving over children separated from their parents and kept in cages. What is happening right now in t...

The world seems so whacked right now. And yet, every day I wake up, go to work, walk the dogs, and check my inbox— only to get distracted by amazing deals on leggings… Remember when we wore real pants? Remember when our president knew how government worked? Remember wh...

I have ordered an uber ride twice in my life, and I believe I’ve experienced the spectrum of uber. The first time, I needed a ride from downtown Denver to Longmont, Colorado (approximately 40 miles) and I became fast friends with the woman who gave me a ride. I sat in...

When I was ten years old my best friend, Allie, and I would wake up early on Sunday mornings to watch FMTV on Channel 12. It was a local show featuring music videos from artists like David Byrne and Blondie. Then Channel 12 sold the name to a company in New York for so...
