America the Beautiful

Van of My Dreams

The first time we met Hawk and Kenz we were outside a grocery store and the two of them just walked right up to us and gave us huge hugs. From then on, it was like we were brothers-from-another-mother/sisters-from-another-mister. Hanging with these two is like being on roller coaster of giggles and tickles. I’ll stop ...

Pax 2

Ok, real talk. I didn’t smoke pot for the first time until I was 25. When I finally did, it was awful. The smoking part that is.

Cherohala Skyway and Beyond

It was autumn in the Southeast, warm but the breeze carried a current of cool air, crisp enough to remind me that soon I’d need to start taking allergy meds for the ragweed that was sure to begin blooming any day now. An alert came across my phone from Instagram. Direct message from OwenC. He ...

The light pouring through two- or three-story glass windows reminded me that even here, the sun makes an appearance from time to time. Every morning for ...
