The Best of Public Radio

A few weeks ago I tuned in to a new (to me) XM station named PRX Remix.  It’s more or less a Best Of Public Radio. I love public radio, but I don’t listen very often. I’m not in my car for extended stretches of time. It always feels like public radio’s not worth listening […]

Goodbye Shin Splints

Two words: Zensah compression sleeves. Last year I ran the Oklahoma City Memorial Half Marathon. I trained and ran the race in 10 year old shoes. Any time I ran more than 3 miles, I had pain. Ankles. Shins. Knees. Hip flexors. You name it. I spent every Friday dreading the long run scheduled for […]

Wearing Bill Walton

I slipped into Blue 7 yesterday to pick up a 2014 Keep It Local card. And lo and behold, I discovered the greatest fun socks known to humanity. Stance’s NBA Legends Collection. They were out of Larry Bird, but I darn sure bought a pair of Bill Waltons. BILL WALTON! ON MY FEET! One-of-the-Greatest-Players-of-All-Time-If-He-Hadn’t-Battled-So-Many-Foot-Injuries is now […]

Bringing Out Your Best Work

‘Bowie is in that life stage where he recognizes who brings out his best work.’ - Jim DeRogatis, on David Bowie’s new album ‘The Next Day’ I heard that on NPR this morning on the way into the office. I’m learning to do this. Over the last couple of years, I’ve reflected on my closest relationships […]

A Collection of Things I’m Learning

I’ve always been a sporadic blogger. I’ll go strong for a few months, then take a 2 year hiatus. I’m not alone in that, but it bugs me that I’m so inconsistent. It bugs me because I want to be a better writer, and a necessity of becoming a better writer is to write. It […]
