1. Note to Mah Faithful

Hi kids. I’m home. I’m back after a whirlwind of the soul coupla months. Father has cancer. Mom has parkinsons. Brother is struggling to recall how to relate deeply (read: at all) with family. So I had to go under for a bit. Into the wave pits of my soul to come back and say hello. HELLO!!! I LOVE TO SCREAM.

2. A Series of Shorts Based On Words Off Today’s NYT Front Page (By Naxal):
