On any given day…

Emotions are weird, aren’t they? On any given day you can go from extremely happy to extremely miserable in a heartbeat. And, most of the time, there’s no way to control it. Your head can say, “hey, what happened dude, we were so happy a minute ago” and your heart goes, “SHUT UP AND GIVE […]

I forget some times…

The other day I told a friend about the day as a kid that I realized, for the first time, that not everyone was a Christian. It kind of blew my mind. I say kind of, but really it really exploded my mind. It was as if before life was the tiny circle that revolved around […]

In the wake of tragedy…

I live about 3,000 miles away from Boston. About 1,400 miles away from Waco. In short, I live too far away. Tragedy in the US is nothing new. We have had acts of natural disasters, domestic terrorism, assassinations, spree killings, and more just in my lifetime. Yet, every time it strikes I get a huge […]

Creative Friends

Maybe it’s because I came from a highly creative family. We’re a long line of storytellers. It’s really the best thing for wanting to […]

Sometimes it's Awesome to be Tabz

Sometimes I realize why it’s awesome to be me. And that sounds so superficial and egotistical (and I’m sorry about that). But honestly – there are just moments I sit back and go… “Oh wow. It’s awesome being me.” I live on the fringes of celebrity. I’ve called it in the past a micro-celebrity status. […]

I'm Bringing Doofus Back…

I’m bringing doofus back. The 60’s slang term for idiot, dummy, whatever. I’m bringing it back. I know what you’re thinking. It’s not a nice word. But, let me explain. Last Christmas we went up to our friends’ house. The Mooses (not really their name, but you get the idea). They have 5 kids, and […]

Why I Do What I Do…

If you have a good idea, get it out there. For every idea I’ve realized, I have ten I sat on for a decade till someone else did it first. Write it. Shoot it. Publish it. Crochet it, sauté it, whatever. MAKE. – Joss Whedon I’m used to being… uh. Different. And by used to […]
