Monday, my recent relationship ended. We both talked a big game about futures and life changes but both of us couldn’t deliver in the end. It was my second amicable break up in a row.

I realize that I have not been single for more than five months since the separation. I also realize that when it comes to my emotional health and well being, I need to be real and stop breaking promises that I make to myself. Let’s see if I can keep this one.

I’m reading this Friday at the MOPE Designs presents Full Frontal Lobes show (The Cameo Theatre 1013 E. Colonial). Ashley Inguanta has put together one hell of an anthology published for the show and some of the local writers will be reading, including myself, at the show. My piece from The Encyclopedia Show is in it, without the exposition. It’s $5. Come check it out and us out (readers will include Ryan Rivas, Tod Caviness, Chris Wiewiora, among others).

I have fiction out at Wrong Tree Review, which you can check out here.
