I am one Barry Hess. It turns out there are many in this world, and I am one. Minnesota is where I have resided for most of my life, and it is probably where I'll be for most of the rest of my life.

I try to write every day. My writing can be found on my blog, secret poetry blog, microblog, personal newsletter, A Good Enough newsletter, journal entries, in the logs of doevery.day, and in the description boxes of Album Whale. I also keep a commonplace book and travelogues for my own amusement.

Years ago I acted all serious and helped build Harvest, but to be honest I've always been happiest goofing off on the web. These days I like to do work that is good enough. Sometimes I'll take a break from writing and interneting to do a little woodworking.
