Florida: Day zero.

At twenty-two hundred I leave metro Atlanta in my rented pickup, chasing a blood red crescent moon towards my battered homeland. I stop in Columbus, Georgia, at a waffle house, for what I assume might be the last hot meal for a while. The waitress is friendly, curious about my pilot uniform. Sheepishly I explain […]

State of the Fox

The tidal forces of time and opportunity are fickle masters, capable of creating opportunity from nothing, and rendering nothing from great possibility. Ten years ago this week, I was with the love of my life in the mountains surrounding the Russian River. We were together, and all the world was ours. 3,648 days ago. 3,607 […]

Will you be…?

“Will you be around next month?” “Will you be at a convention in December?” “Do you have any plans the first week of January?” I get these questions a lot, and the answer, to all of them, is always “I have no idea.” It’s not simply being non-committal—I actually have no way to answer. The […]

Moving day!

It’s moving day! I feel like Mrs. Brisby… I have all my stuff packed—I hope—and ready to load into the truck.

Alaska Marine Highway System ferry “Matanuska”, here I come. ^.^ In other news, “Theta” is now available […]

A new day, a new Fox

Here I may discuss many topics, from writing to flying, from coffee to philosophy and the various artifices of self… I intend to keep this part journal and part commentary…but mostly it will serve as a report on the progress of my writings and my […]
