My Recent Ramblings
I know that you all are getting tons and tons of emails asking for donations before midnight today. I’m going to offer my suggestions if you have some money burning a hole in your bank account and you want to make a contribution (large or small) to support people and causes I think are awesome.read more

It should shock no one that I have a bunch of creative projects around my house that are in varying states of completion. I was going to work on things this spring/summer, but then I said yes to not one, but two, candidates so was somewhat busy until November 5. Now those campaigns are over and I have no others on my radar (more on that later) and I have ALL THE FREE TIME!read more
Since I was on the road a lot recently, and also in the midst of some projects that involve me needing to zone out and focus, I’ve been pretty much listening to music 24/7. Wait – this isn’t really a change from my norm. Carry on.
So what am I listening to as of late? Well, I’ve got two albums on heavy rotation, with a third recently getting added to the mix.read more
It’s been almost a week since I arrived back in Minnesota after my trip. In fact, at this point a week ago I was in a plane that was flying eastward as a part of my 30 hour journey from Hanoi to St. Paul.
I’m slowly but surely getting used to being back home. I’ve done some laundry, paid a couple of bills I forgot to pay before I left (oops), gone through 3 weeks of work email and documents and back into the campaign saddle. There is still a lot I need to do, mainly the rest of my laundry, moving my empty suitcase from the middle of the living room, and getting actual food in my house, but that’ll happen eventually.
As I look back, I realize the past week has seemed to just fly by. It seems as if the last 6 days have lasted as long as one day while I was traveling. Once I had this realization, I began to wonder why – time is time and it’s not like days in Minnesota are shorter than in SE Asia. . .
What is different?read more
