What I’m Doing On My Summer “Vacation”

June 11, 2013

And I say “vacation” because what? Vacation? Ha! Oh, ha ha. Good one. It’s a busy, busy summer so far, and I’m not complaining, because it’s busy with phenomenal things. You may not see many posts from me, but keep an eye on this space come fall, when I have big plans (BIG PLANS) to […]

On a Jet Plane

March 5, 2013

I’m spending a lot of time on planes, in airports, and on the road these days, traveling around to give lectures to promote the book. You can find out where I’m going to be here, and if you’re in the neighborhood, stop by and say hey! It’s always exciting–and surprising–to meet blog readers. (“Really? You […]

Yes, that’s right–I’m starting to think we should just call it Why Buy This When You Can Win […]

Gardening Rocks 2012 Advent: Day 25

December 25, 2012

We started this advent with Amanda Palmer, and what better year to end it with Amanda Palmer? In my mind, 2012 will stand out as a roaring rollercoaster of a year. There were highs, and there were lows, but no matter how you slice it, 2012 was a year we’ll remember. Disclosure: my birthday is […]

Gardening Rocks 2012 Advent: Day 24

December 24, 2012

A pretty song with an even prettier video from M. Ward. It sounds as simplistically magical as a childhood Christmas Eve, when the air was ripe with possibility and anticipation, and even adventure. I hope yours this year is as magical. Get your free/legal download of “The First Time I Ran Away” here. I wrote […]
