Being a continuation of the story told previously, entitled The CD Binder, Part 1.
It was the start of spring break my freshman year of college and I was walking to my car to drive home (this was before that car got stolen, but that’s a different story for another day). At an intersection near my dorm, a car pulled up to the stop sign, presumably also driving homeContinue reading “The CD Binder, Part 1”
On March 1, the state of North Carolina had its first confirmed case of COVID-19. On March 5, I got on a plane to fly to San Antonio. That sounds absolutely insane to say now, but that just shows how quickly everything changed. The virus was concerning, but not necessarily life-altering.
Alright, so this one is a bit of a long story, but it’s totally worth it. Despite the similarity in name, this story is vastly different from The Garage. Some friends and I were going out to downtown Durham on a Friday night. I was driving. I decided to park in the parking garage convenientlyContinue reading “The Parking Garage Incident”

A couple of months ago, my wife and I went to add her name to my checking account. We have joint finances on paper, but we had yet to make reality match the theory. No, we’re not newlyweds. We’re just lazy.
I was behind a car which had a tiny sticker in the window that said “Stop human trafficking”. It made me wonder what the point was. Was it an instruction to the viewer, as though the driver expected human traffickers to be on the road behind her in Morrisville, North Carolina? Or maybe just aContinue reading “Human Trafficking”
So the creation of the heavens and the earth and everything in them was completed. On the seventh day God had finished his work of creation, so he rested from all his work. And God blessed the seventh day and declared it holy, because it was the day when he rested from all his work of creation.Continue reading “Rest”
In 2013, I was vacationing in South Africa. I was staying in Cape Town in what we in the US would call a townhome that had three other guys living in it. I had a rental car so I could drive around and do tourist-type things.
