I am a 50-whatever Austin ex-pat living in St. Louis, Missouri with my beloved rescue-mutt, Jake Stein. My original concept for this blog was to create a insightful, pithy, running commentary about growing older, but I tired of that limitation as quickly as you can say “AARP.” At the moment Life. Sentences. is a collection of personal essays about any topic that feels worth writing about. Will the blog take on more definition in the upcoming year? I suppose we’ll find out soon enough.
