New Leaf, pt 5: Now Say Bye To Now Play This

New Leaf, pt 5: Now Say Bye To Now Play This (London! I’m writing about tromping around, seeking out games and play.)

Crossing the stone […]

New Leaf, pt 4: Now Play This Sample Platter

(Warm weather in London! I’m writing a travelogue called New Leaf as I seek opportunities for play.) Exhaustion allowed me to sleep in a little, and my Personal List Of Goals For London insisted that I take the morning off for a second attempt to view the ancient Roman Coliseum under Guildhall Yard.

New Leaf pt 3: Now Let’s Attend Now Play This

(Currently in London, this is my travelogue New Leaf collecting some anecdotes as I pursue games and play.) I’ve not been sleeping well, due in part to jet lag and I’m sure to excitement. Fell asleep with only four and a half hours of rest ahead of me and then woke up completely after two. […]

Eating […]

I Am Not A Part Of You Anymore

The moment when the angel’s foot begins to receive its weight, pressing slightly into the soil. How the focus, for so long a soft tapestry of insinuated colour with contours as gentle as a breath, suddenly completes its slide into perfect sharpness. And though the eye has yet to alight on anything which belies this […]

Micro-Conventions

This past weekend we celebrated the games of Drew Henderson at a game convention called Breathing 2014. Mr. Henderson was not only the guest of honor – he was the only attendee. I had, of course, a small handful of volunteers (Robert Bruce, Orion Canning, and Jay Loomis) to add their creativity, opinions, and expertise […]

To Write

To write, you must sit down and write. To write, you must walk around the room, down the hall to stare at yourself in the mirror, boil water and leave it, clap your hands at nothing, adjust the blinds, peer from the window, put the water on again. You must strike things with your pen. […]
