Right on, er…I guess off. The grid, that is. Maybe when I’m rich I can do that too. Here‘s my letter to the editor. I thought when they didn’t print it the day after I sent it that perhaps it wouldn’t be printed. I was going to be pissed. Read More..

funny…it’s one of the things that I’m preparing to let go. I’m working to imagine myself as a person who doesn’t lose his cool, doesn’t let little annoyances make him act in ways he’d rather not act.
