Lady Wizard

Love is everything and nothing at all. It is effortless and extremely difficult. It is magic and science. It just is. Also, it isn’t. Elizabeth Wilkie is a soldier in trenches of the war of love. Also: Life. She battles everyday. Against her body. Against time. Against it all. Then, she sleeps. Seriously, this chick… Read More ›

Got my hair did

Since my wife and I had a child, there are a few things I’ve had to give up: I’ve had to give up eating a meal without being screamed at in gibberish. I’ve had to give up watching a movie without having my genitals bitten (it’s a long story). I’ve had to give up going to… Read More ›
