Parent Hack: Read An Excerpt From Subversion

Posted by kayholt on December 6, 2011 in family, publishing, writing |

I wrote a story called Parent Hack. It has troubled kids making troubling decisions in a troubled system. It’s about necessity and the invention of family.  There’s an excerpt below to entice you to buy the book my story is in. *** A hidden intercom crackled, “What do you want?” Nicolas’s keen, dark eyes spotted […]

Homemade Video Cobbler

Posted by kayholt on August 2, 2011 in editing, family, vlogging, work |

Have you ever made something just because you had the materials for it? Like the time I made pancakes from scratch because I wandered into the pantry and the ingredients practically threw themselves off the shelves at me in their eagerness to be transformed into something greater than parts of a sum? After the moment […]

Happy Shenanigans: Room For One More

Posted by kayholt on July 22, 2011 in family, vlogging |

I think most of our friends have heard that Bart and I want to adopt a child from foster care. We already have one great kid, but we think our little family would be even happier with one more. Because this is important, we’re taking our time with it – getting our apartment ready, getting […]

What’s On Your Autopsy Report?

Posted by kayholt on March 1, 2011 in family, health |

Cause of death: Gunshot wound of the head. Manner: Suicide. The autopsy report was interesting for a number of reasons, some […]

There Is No Giant Foot Trying To Squash Me

Posted by kayholt on January 3, 2011 in editing, family, publishing, work, writing |

If I’m not a huge fan of annual retrospective posts, it’s because they usually read like boring litanies of snark and disappointment. Or worse: Obnoxiously falsetto cheer. Oh, how I loathe the perky… That said, I must admit that 2010 was an above average year for me. I’ve accomplished much, gotten away with more fun […]

A self portrait by Bastian I never can wait for the holidays to pass. Not that it’s an especially traumatic time, or anything, it just throws off my groove. If we lived on the other side of the world where this year-end stuff happens in summer, would I like it any better? I expect not. […]

I’ll Pull That Trigger When I’m Good and Ready

Posted by kayholt on November 1, 2010 in family, health |

Rinjani by Oliver Spalt (Creative Commons) I’ve always loved geology. I started collecting odd rocks before I started school, and my preschooler is the same way. I took college-level geology courses throughout high school and I might have majored in that subject, but there was one little problem: I’m so terrified of volcanoes that I […]
