what do I stand for?

It has been too long. February and March came and went and here I sit, a third of the way through April and I haven't taken the time to post. Ah well, such is life I guess. My internship keeps me busy, and I am loving every minute of it. The people who I am…

It has been a nice break the last few weeks. I decided when Christmas rolled around to take a break from blogging for a while. I figured I'd pick it back up sometime after New Year's and today is that day. Not only is it my return from a mini-sabbatical but it also marks the…

and when necessary

All I can seem to think right now is WTF. Last week brought into my life a perspective that had been missing for so long and tonight, one that has plagued me is back in full force. I really don't know where to begin or if you even care to hear the tale, but tonight…

thank you Sarah…

Tuesday of this week began like any other. I woke up early, as my wife and I have lost the ability to sleep in. I stepped out of the room for just a minute to find one thing or another and upon my return noticed a missed call and a text. Most days I tend…

let the adventures begin

Last night, as I attempted to finish the book I was reading, I found my eyes wandering from the sentence I was finishing to the toddler on the TV screen. One of my wife's guilty pleasures, and mine too, is watching trashy TV. In this case "trashy TV" manifested itself in the form of Toddlers…

770 miles later here I sit in an old favorite coffee shop of mine. No, I did not make the road trip just for the wonderful coffee they serve here, it just so happens to be a bonus. This is not to say that there aren't plenty of coffee shops that offer succulent variations of…

bungle in the jungle

Tonight as I made my way to meet up with some folks at a nearby coffee shop the song of which this post is titled came on to the radio. I have always been a fan of Jethro Tull, judge me as you will, and I have always found within their lyrics some sort of…

so here goes…

Later today my wife and her family are going to be putting their dog down. SoCo, yes he is named for Southern Comfort, has had a life full of love, but also a life of health problems. It is no shock that his time has run out as he has been struggling immensely for the…
