This afternoon, I cooked myself lunch. I scrambled an egg with melted leek, split a whole wheat-millet muffin and popped it in the toaster, plated it all, garnished the egg with a bit of matcha sea salt and a basil leaf, filled a glass with water, then walked to my living room. I balanced the … Continue reading Diabetes: Day 1,567
Is this "reflections" post a poorly-disguised excuse to share as many pictures as I can of Mickey? (PS follow him on instagram @mickeytheservicedog. HASHTAG SHAMELESS.)

One of the three of us got a blowout party, featuring hats, music, and cake. Although I reminded … Continue reading Birthdays
Full disclosure: I have been completely chicken shit about posting this; in fact, I've put off posting it for about 6 months.

In researching this Big Decision we … Continue reading A really awesome thing
