A Letter In The Night And A Marriage Improved

I guess it makes sense, but that doesn’t make it any less painful. I’m a writer now. That’s where life has taken me in the last half decade, and so it would figure that I’d need it all spelled out for me inside the college-ruled lines of a 12 page […]

We’re Both Still Growing Up

There are eight traffic lights separating the short driveway in front of our home and our grade school’s two separate parent drop-off zones. Pushing back from the gate by 7:46 A.M. affords us the time to justmiss a few of them. We’ve got to be reversing out of the driveway […]

Just Around The Corner

It’s best, even if you don’t have a spontaneous bone in your body, not to over-think these kinds of things. Decide and go. Hit a few talking points, cross fingers, conjure the faith you need, and move forward with grace and confidence into the great unknown. We were just around […]

Gearing Up For Opening Day

I’d gladly trade Columbus Day, a player to be named later, and cash considerations for it. Columbus Day’s GM, however, won’t return any of my calls. Major League Baseball’s Opening Day is, in my book, and properly should be all-official-like, a national freaking holiday. The red, white & blue bunting, […]

How Much Rope

The end of the saying I’m referencing in the title of this blog post is pretty damn grisly. In retrospect, I probably should have changed it. I mean, yeah I am still typing and could easily swap it out for something else, something less suicide-y but instead I leave it/have […]
