Unsolved mysteries

March 24, 2002

my life has often felt like an after-school TV special, a Lifetime movie, a painfully bad sitcom, and yes, okay, even a cartoon.

right now, though, it feels like an episode of Unsolved Mysteries. marvelous coincidences and bittersweet moments that make absolutely no sense whatsoever.

  • I run a darling, friendly, little graphic design studio.
    I look on the bright side.
    I take photos. Lots of photos.
    I wish on stars and on websites.

  • I built my first web site 7 years ago and got 15 seconds of fame. (It changed my life.)
    I launched, then relaunched, an online magazine.
    I admitted to several embarrassing crushes.
    I consumed more bacon than any human should and lived to tell the tales.
