Life or Death: A Flip of the Coin

Heads I win, tails you lose. While I tend to like my odds there, I think the last time that offer actually worked was against Elizabeth when she was about three years old. Although my return on that gambit was solid (I believe chores were involved) I was significantly shamed by my beautiful wife for … Read more

Where in the World Do These Signs Lead?

There will always be signs – in life and in love… but will you see them? Will you heed them? Some signs in life are meant to be ignored. I mean, ”This playground equipment is intended for children 5-12 years of age” – seriously? Challenge accepted. Others, like Speed Limit signs in small towns – … Read more

A Challenge that Only Scratches the Surface

I find myself working through a little dilemma here. It’s somewhat of a head-scratcher, if you will. It’s O’dark 30, (actually, it’s about 3:15 AM, but O’dark 30 sounds cooler) and I’ve just been awakened for the umpteenth time from an imperfect sleep.

The Blockbuster that Never Made the Big Screen

Now showing, in an exclusive, limited location release (my living room only), is the critically acclaimed 1994 RomCom classic, “Mitch and Melanie (Finally) Get Married.” This incredibly underrated movie masterpiece stars Mitch Canton as a young man (yes, obviously, it’s an old movie) who after a ‘brief’ 11 year romance finally does the right thing … Read more

Youth Would be Served

Time flies when you’re having fun. Actually, time flies, whether you’re having fun or not. Trust me on that one. 🙂 I can’t believe it’s been a full year since I went to my final class reunion. This weekend last year, I was saying hellos to people I hadn’t seen in years and goodbyes to … Read more

Dreams So Real

Whether camped out in the woods under a billion stars or nestled in my room without a single light, I dream. A lot. I mean pretty much every single night. If I wake up in the middle of the night – assuming I am able to get back to sleep – then woo-hoo, it could … Read more

I Am Still Here

I may be exhausted, but two years later at least I am still here. Today, I remember one of my mantras… celebrate all your victories. Even the small ones. Maybe especially the small ones. The way I look at it, if you do that you’ll have more celebrations and less time in between them. Win/win, … Read more
