I was supposed to write the next post about the difficulty of being four hours away from my boys, about trying to figure out if the personal success that I have been having at work was worth the distance that I am away from them. About whether or not I should move back and take... Continue Reading →
I found the Comfort in….
I have been a Nirvana fan since I was a young teenager. The primal screams and pain that emanated from his throat spoke to me as a boy deep in the throws of the stereotypical “teenage angst”. Yes I had the ripped jeans, yes I had the Chuck Taylors, yes I had the long blond... Continue Reading →
Finding my pace in this world…
I can see it. It walks casually up the sidewalk on the opposite side of the road, arms swinging to a cadence that breeds its own type of music. There is a carefree attitude emanating from very core of its being. Head is held high, shoulder up, eyes staring straight ahead, and a smirk, a... Continue Reading →
The Formidable Mile….
The journey that I have taken over the course of the past two years has been one that at times has seemed directionless. Taking the proverbial one step forward only to take two steps back again.

You were born in the morning and your first day was filled with visitors, a proud mother and father trying their best to change you... Continue Reading →
How do I…..
The first time I said, “I love you” to her it slipped out by accident. It wasn’t that I didn’t want to say it to her; I had been waiting years to say those very words to her. She was house sitting for her neighbor, she wanted me to come over and stay with her.... Continue Reading →
I have always been one to talk things out when something is bothering me. This allowed me to externalize what was building up internally which in turn allowed me to make it real. If it was just inside my head then it never seemed real, there never seemed to be evidence of how I was... Continue Reading →
The lake was large and deep. The water while blue on the surface darkened quickly, so much that I could not see the kicking of my own feet. My arms pushed and pulled at a rapid pace to keep myself afloat in what seemed like the exact center of the cold body of water. I... Continue Reading →
