I am a fairly simple person with an appetite for the complexity around me. I am always trying to see things in a different light, and explain them as well as I can with purposeful language. I enjoy drinking coffee in the winter, reading whatever is interesting, exploring music, laughing with people, laughing by myself, discovering new joy, and being a skeptical American spectator. I consider myself a friend of the world, and hope something I write will help someone somehow. At the very least, I want to be informative and interesting.
Here you will find fiction and nonfiction alike. Political commentary will surely be what is most often published–hence the blog’s title–but I dabble in a little of everything. I will try to publish at least something twice a week, so come back every now and then. I hope you like what you find here. If you do, I’d love to be informed of that fact. Thanks, and enjoy.
