    Poco a Poco

    Poco a poco.Little by little.  Our plan for this house is revealing itself more visibly.  Originally, this house was the center of a 440 acre working ranch. They logged, sold timber locally to build houses and barns. They had an orchard, supplying the nearby Sugar Pine Mill workers with apples nearly year round, making cider…

  • The scary place we’re at and how we turn it around

    The scary place we’re at and how we turn it around

    This afternoon a group of outsiders are coming to San Diego to attempt to disrupt the San Diego Unified School Districts board meeting as the district debates implementing a vaccine mandate for the prevention of COVID-19 among students 12 and up. This debate isn’t controversial or out of context in the least. The district already…

  • Is the world getting worse?

    Is the world getting worse?

    Is the world getting worse or do we just have more immediate access to everything that’s going on in the world so we notice it more? Maybe I’m getting old? Or maybe things truly are really bad right now? It’s honestly hard to tell.

  • A Foot on Each Side

    A Foot on Each Side

    My life is in San Diego. We live here. I’m as involved locally as I’ve ever been. My work is here. My friends are here. My home is here. My bills are here. Everything is here. I live here in Rolando. My life is also in Tijuana and Ensenada, two cities in Baja California, Mexico.…

  • Let’s agree on this

    Let’s agree on this

    Let’s agree on this: Human rights are not the kind of politics it’s impolite to talk about. Right now, tens of thousands of wanna-be Americans are stuck in an asylum system with the deck stacked against them. 0.1% are making it through.
