Hump Day

By |March 18th, 2015|

At the farmer’s market this afternoon someone said, happy hump day!

I’d forgotten about hump day. When you’re hanging on by the skin of your teeth for a weekend, to do what’s really you, while all week you’re doing something that’s not. I hope you don’t have a hump day. That you’re not counting off days […]

upon a time when I was a suit, (the marketing kind), I was flicking through photos trying to select one for a banking brochure. They were "aspirational" photos designed, in our case, to inspire people to invest for a lifestyle.

men in my life love a shed. 
I get the whole retreat thing. I get it. Farmers though, they're not really retreating. They're storing. Stockpiling. Saving. Salvaging.

On our phones, we email them, keep them, forget to file them.
Among all the snaps, do you have […]
