I Get Better With A Little Help From My Friends

My definition of a friend was as rigid as glass when I was young. It all started with a song lyric from the album that changed my life when I was an impressionable 17 year old kid: “Your ideas, your image, your definition of a friend” Before this song, before […]

Travel 2017 Cadenza

At Home in La La Land

There were supposed to be more hours to kill in paradise on that Thursday morning. I’d gone Into The Mystic the evening prior, staying up later than advisable if not for the anticipation of a morning spent peacefully under a puffed white duvet until the haze of morning had faded […]

A Marvel For All

I’ve attended exactly one Free Comic Book Day in my life. This was a few years back, during the heyday of Art Baltazar’s Tiny Titans comics which was the slow birth of my own daughters’ interest in anything fictionally superheroic. I cannot recall anything we took home gratis on that […]

How To Raise Daughters To Love Their Bodies When You Hate Yours

I finish pissing and step up onto the digital scale for the 3rd time today, with more eagerness than the occasion warrants. There are water stains on the reflective black surface from the kids swinging their wet hands over to reach the hand towel after washing up. Every once in […]

Reluctantly Putting It All Away At The End of Summer

It’s over. The fat lady has sung. The dust has most definitely settled. The summer is over. Summertime is a memory now, fading slowly in the dying sunlight. School is on again and the associated paperwork is already taking over every flat surface of my home. The furniture in the […]

Friday Night With Books and a Mouse

Her mother and sister had already left for their weekend away. They are heading up north. We aren’t pushing back until morning, going south to Virginia for soccer, history and hiking. I showered first and then she got in with a shower cap to continue preserving the dyed color that […]

On Throwing A Very Special Sweet Sixteen Party

It would be too easy to blame the walls, to blame the regressive nature of what I swear was a dignified brown paint fifteen years ago, for our lack of entertaining. Over time, that evocative brown became emotionless beige and while we adventure together outside of the house, from Gaudi’s […]

On Finally Feeling Like A Good Dad

Our TV is almost never on. It sits upon a recently stained Ikea buffet, angled slightly and extending a thumb’s length off the edge. It’s a 42″ semi-reflective black mirror for 23 1/2 hours a day, on average. When the television is on, it’s the manicured green grass of European […]

In Not Being There For My Kids This Summer, My Greatest Dad Fear Was Realized

I had been up for hours already. Threadbare was my body, fueled incompletely throughout the long dark and lonely night by soft serve twists and by ice cold chocolate milk from stainless steels troughs surrounded by the clamoring masses desperately seeking reams of thick cut bacon and other greasy breakfast […]
