A Visit To The Real Hundred Acre Wood In England with Piglet and Pooh

Maybe it’s because I too long to write stories for young people like A. A. Milne did, thus becoming, like him and his Winnie-the-Pooh books, a small but meaningful part of the childhoods of countless kids. Or maybe it’s because I generally adore childhood so damn much or because Piglet, […]

A Sputtering Start To A Plugged-In Life

The Kia Soul EV may be a car for the raddest of individuals, people who want to zig when others zag and plug-in while others fuel up, but it’s certainly not for the lazy. If this story would’ve been set a month earlier, in summer’s bloated belly full of burgers […]

A Day of Play and a Run To End Childhood Cancer

This is shaping up to be quite the week, a week that’ll undoubtedly be filled with smiles, tears, laughter, hugs and maybe a blister or a few cramps. As I write this I’m sitting the Westin hotel just off Beale Street in Memphis. I’m looking out at the morning sky […]

Dear Kids, You Cannot Be Anything You Want

Kids, you may want to sit down for this. You too, mom and dad, although I trust, deep down, you already know what you’re about to read is true. Despite what everyone from your doting elementary school teachers to the encouraging dude at the barber shop has been telling you […]

Hinky Pinks On The Long Drive Home

We drove out to Detroit this past weekend to run the Hockeytown 5K, traveling roughly 1100 miles in our Kia Sportage to run/walk 3.1 on the streets along the Detroit River and atop the ice of Joe Louis Arena. Yes, I fully realize how nuts that sounds. But we weren’t […]

A Teary Eyed Family 5K in Hockeytown

Despite having run the distance hundreds of times (okay, maybe one hundred) I’ve never once done so officially; with safety pins affixed, an assigned number, other runners in front of and behind me, or a time recorded anywhere but for an app on my phone. That all changes this Saturday […]
