That’s Just How I Roll: Thoughts On Inspiration

27th March 2018

When I read about Stephen Hawking’s death, I was transported to a pub in Glasgow where I once found a prime piece of graffiti: Stephen Hawking hates karaoke.  I remember discussing this line with my friends and deciding it was kinda apt. My first thought on the death of genius was a tenuously linked personal memory. I went on about my day, steering Isla away from chocolate for all of her meals. I said nothing on social media because I very…

I just write personal essays/sarcastic listicles in a public forum and some people like them.  That’s groovy.  I thank you. In the spirit of not being a bullshit artist, you guys know I’ve been blogging since 2010. However.  That’s only 430 posts. I’ve had 3 day jobs, married one person, and made another…
