Last night was yet another restless one... plenty of tossing and turning, waking up at least once every other hour... my mind just wouldn't SHUT UP! I woke up so many times expecting to see a form of Torey - this may sound ridiculous, but it's a thing. I can just feel him sometimes -... Continue Reading →
The Wire | Michael K. Williams | RIP
Torey and I used to have our "own" shows and "us" shows. He had started watching The Wire back in maybe 2008 or 2009 (maybe even earlier, I can't put my finger on it) - and it was one of those shows where I drifted in and out of (unlike The Sopranos). I definitely remember... Continue Reading →

It's hard to fight back the random tears and sobs. All we have are precious memories - even the bad moments are precious because... Continue Reading →
9 Minutes and 29 Seconds
Today the jury reached its verdict to determine Derek Chauvin's fate. The man who let his whole body weight land through his knee on George Floyd's neck - on Floyd's precious life. Das didn't have practice this evening - he had to stay a little past the time of school being out so I needed... Continue Reading →
