On Loyalty, Family, and Love

I’ve been thinking about romantic relationships. A lot of them suck. They may have started out great: marriage, kids, the house and picket fence, but then they sucked.

Fun With Crystal Skulls

An interview with Sal My name is I.O. Kirkwood and I’m here with Sal, an obsidian Crystal Skull with whom I recently entered into stewardship.

I have a black shirt, soft as butter and stretchy, with the super long sleeves that serve as small teddy bears at the ends of my arms.
