Dear Zonk, I haven’t been here in a long time. But I couldn’t help it. Getting married is a lot of work. Even if you get married in a small-ish way, like me. So, here’s everything that’s been happening recently: I am now officially unemployed. And it feels good. In Jan, I’ll start working again. I’ll […]
Dear Zonk, Troubling things are happening. In order to distract myself, I think I’ll make my Birthday List. A list of things I want and need — A nylon string guitar.

Dear Zonk, It’s the 4th of October, and it’s getting easier than ever now to think of time in a series of countdowns. Mostly happy countdowns. Which is something to celebrate, since I’m generally wired to fear change. So this is the first countdown. We’re on Day 30. I’m in a cab on my way […]
