Hi Sharon,

There's actually a pretty good story about where DEAD RUN came from. Years ago, PJ and my dad and I were driving home from my grandparents' house in Door County, WI -- the trip has lots of stretches of farmland dotted with tiny bergs like Four Corners. It was a spectacular fall day, sunny and warm, and we began to notice that all the towns seemed completely deserted, not a soul in sight. Shouldn't everybody be outside enjoying the weather? Our minds immediately went to the dark side - after eliminating alien abduction, we decided that something horrible must have happened and began crafting a story from there. My long-suffering father, who always remained silent (and amused) during our madcap creative binges, finally looked at both of us and reminded us there was a Green Bay Packers game on TV. (less)

The Devil You Know

Oh, summer, we hardly knew ye! But it was a glorious one. For the first time in many, many years, I took a sabbatical to recharge body and spirit. It was incredibly restorative – I have always believed that when you are comfortable, there is no growth – but my perspective has since expanded, which is exactly the point of a sabbatical. Although I was slightly alarmed by how easily I slid into a lif Read more of this blog post »
