I set it as low as I need to go so that I can meet it every day. My highest has been 500. My lowest so far is 150. On good days, I exceed the quota, sometimes wildly, but on bad days, I claw my way through and call it good. And every once in a while, I just get tired of it all and so I stop for a while and do something else: read, knit, etc. Whenever I finish a draft, I am always convinced that I will never write anything ever again. I am not one of those people with a million stories crowding my head, waiting to be told. I only know what I have to say after I have written it.

Now, with a president whose behavior and words embolden bullies, it is far worse. I wrote this essay five years ago. Since then, the piece has morphed into several  shorter essays and a full manuscript. I am sharing it here in its long...

Tribe by Sebastian Junger

Junger raises some worthwhile questions by juxtaposing stories in counterpoint to many of our cultural assumptions. His strength as a storyteller is clear. He gets a little out of his depth in his conclusions, I'd say. Or, he is unaware of how narrat ...more

“When I rise up
let me rise up joyful
like a bird.

When I fall
let me fall without regret
like a leaf.”
