Christmas is a week out and I’m in the same state of mind as I was 365 days ago. Hurried, disheveled and trying to jam fifteen minute errands into eight. We need a mega-blizzard in my fair town to slow things down, or at least slow down everyone else.

Parenthood was simpler when Kate was four.  Life before high school and boys is a foggy memory.  I yearn for the toddler years when she bummed rides on my shoulders.  I’d gladly relive having a sore neck.  Kate’s now sixteen and college is on the horizon.  I try not to waste time watching it fly […]

I was advised to meet older women. I asked why.  My wife, Hun, has an open mind but I suspect she wouldn’t appreciate me connecting with older women, younger women, or any women, for that matter.

“My parents practiced the rhythm method but I still can’t dance.”  – Biff America in ‘Steep, Deep and Dyslexic’- His face and hands were tanned and weathered.  Both were symptoms of someone who spends more time outside than in an office.  He wore a wool flannel shirt, a woolen cap, and well-worn jeans.  He opened […]
