I have a thousand stories, and each one is a node that leads to a hundred others. I read about writer’s block but suffer from the opposite curse, a gush of ideas each day, all wrestling to get out, to breathe.

Here I am going for a run with my best running pal. I’m pretty sure the neighbors wonder…
