I saw Valentino Achak Deng speak almost a week ago in Jackson. He is an amazing man. A man who, as a boy... such a young boy, suffered though the turmoil of the Second Sudanese Civil War: being seperated from his family, no food, no water, death around him, death before him. Deng came to… Continue reading valid.
Allison asked, - Do you cry a lot? - Pardon? - Well, in your blahg, you say that you cried when something happened a lot. Do you really cry? Or do you just say that? - Oh, I dunno... I think I cry everytime I say I do. Maybe I don't. Soon enough it was… Continue reading my true heart.

I was craving Australia the other day. Weird, I know. How do you crave such a dark time? But, no... I craved the isolation, the invisibility, the unidentified wandering, the loneliness, the strangers. So, I drove to Salt Lake City. By myself. To go see a concert: Sleigh Bells and Yeasayer. Leaving Jackson with such… Continue reading a place for you.
