You belong in my world of deserts.
What will the neighbors think?
Monday thus far has been a brilliant collection of the brightest stars in the Universe when compared to the remainder of this week. As I reflect on Monday while approaching my 13th hour at work today; I remembered taking my daughter for a ride around the neighborhood. Being the safety minded individual that I am I have been working to teach my 5 year old how to communicate in traffic and have a...
For Girl-Detective and her question about...
This is a story I tell frequently in many different scenarios. A little over 7 years ago I found myself sitting across from a man who was giving me advice prior to my marriage. This is the story he told me: Many years ago when I was a young man and attending University I used to start and finish my day with a long run. I love to run. For me, my day was a failure if I didn’t start and...
I'm reluctant to comment on your meat products...
but they are dry, overcooked, and tainted with the sadness of a Superstar athlete who reached his peak in 4th grade and has held onto it well into his 50’s.
Today and I aren't friends.

Why yes I think I shall
Watch Cinema Pardiso before taking a shower.

K: ewww! Why are you like that.
Me: because my skin is translucent.
Yosemite: you're invited.
I’m planning on a little field trip into Yosemite this coming weekend with my kids (ages 3 and 5). I do plan on doing some small hiking and exploring. If you would like to join in you’re more than welcome. I’ve got room in the car for 4 more.
A small town in central California made for an interesting place to grow up. There was a small library in town that was encased in a rickety building smaller than my living room. Housed in that library was a selection of records. I remember checking out The Rolling Stones, The Beatles and Queen. A few years later it became clear that records were being made obsolete and they were put up for...
Unformed thought that needed to get out of my...
The other day in local news was a story about a 27 year old woman who had launched a website to solicit for someone to take her 3 year old for a period of time because she was not emotionally capable of caring for him. As expected this garnered some attention, some ignorant remarks, and some actual compassionate thought. With the most basic of details from this scenario I don’t think there...
WHY DIDN'T ANYONE TELL ME ABOUT THE PAULY SHORE...
