River Rock Moss Terrarium, from Greenbriar's Etsy

I would love to buy this beautiful little terrarium. I am intrigued by the little world contained in a glass vessel for all to see. It would make the perfect companion to brighten my nights at work and green up my desk (unfortunately not next to my ancient typewriter because I do not own one).

You know what other item could 'lighten' my day? This one could try:

25 watts, by Steamed Glass on Etsy

This one was placed in an ACTUAL LIGHT BULB. A 25 watter, if you couldn't already guess. Aren't these just the coolest little things? I wish I had the creativity to come up with these. If only I didn't so completely hate spending money...

Moving to a new venue

Hello my rabid followers (all four of you). Most of you are not journalists and started following this blog before I converted it to include mostly my reflections on the industry. I have come to the conclusion that this is not fair, to myself and you.
I enjoy writing on journalism and the future of newspapers as I continue my journey in the field. But I also miss being able to include some of my own personal musings. It seemed like a good idea at the time to be totally professional on this blog.
In the interest of pleasing myself and my readers (by now there's probably only three of you since you've gotta be bored), I'm splitting my blogging personality in two.
One Night to Search for Truth will remain here, recording my personal journey through life for my friends. The journalistic component of this blog will move, forcing me to lug all my journalistic musings (and post-deadline alcohol) over to a site I created last year at It doesn't have a name yet, since this blog is keeping its creative-based handle. But I do have a URL for you to visit if you wish to continue reading my musings on the state of journalism:
As you can see, that site is really my professional site. It includes not only my blog, but also a page for journalistic clips and a page for my resume.
So this blog is reverting back to its original form as a personal blog with a touch of the creative. Stick around.
