    In my dream I am always in some confusing country where I don’t speak the language and there are people everywhere. The architecture is all wrong. Hallways end with walls, stairways are sealed off. Rebar exposed, concrete crumbling. I’m always lost and there is always some sort of time element an...

    Maybe because my father went to navel school, maybe because that’s the way things were back then, I don’t know, but I used to be much more regimented in my daily life.  Growing up, we cleaned the house on Saturday morning, went grocery shopping on Saturday afternoon. We had hamburgers on Saturday...

    Back at the rodeo, chores are left undone. The work is waiting for me and I dive in, efficiently slashing my way through the paperwork, ordering the feed, tending to the animals. I’m always most efficient right before and right after a holiday. That’s when tough decisions are made. That’s when it...

    I’ve become inconsistent. The tether is loose. The leash is slackened. I am floating free of the realm. I’m just another die in the cup now, shaken up, fatalistic… out there, now cast…waiting to land. We load up the Boondoggle (yeah, that’s what we are going to call this thing) and head north and...

    Turns out to be a busy day. That’s the problem of being a rodeo clown, you never know when you are going to be needed. You never know when you are going to jump in and save the day. I start my day with the rush hour traffic and traffic becomes a theme of the…
