Day in the Life – a photo essay

Whether they know it or not, everyone has a story to tell. However, some folks never tell their stories because they think they have nothing to say – that their life is too boring. It’s with that in mind, that I set out to create a photo essay that took something routine and mundane –Continue reading “Day in the Life – a photo essay”

Destiny, over easy

My recent trip to Massachusetts got me reflecting a bit on how much things change. Flashback more than ten years ago. I was 21 years old and living for the first time on my own in a small village in Massachusetts. I worked serving drinks in a small cafe across from an all-women’s college, jugglingContinue reading “Destiny, over easy”

Barnes and No-buddy, don’t do that!

From our last adventure of father-son bonding with dinner at Uno, the little monkey and I then headed to Barnes and Noble. The image in my head before we got there was of me sipping a coffee, while pushing him in the stroller, looking at children’s books and generally enjoying a calm night of booksContinue reading “Barnes and No-buddy, don’t do that!”

Deep dish pizza, bathroom diaper changes and egg on my face

I took my son out to dinner recently, just he and I. My wife had the opening night of her recent play and he and I were having a guys’ night out. Partly, I did this as a bit of a test, to see how both he and I did on our own without mommyContinue reading “Deep dish pizza, bathroom diaper changes and egg on my face”

Trying to step away from social media and plug into my life

I’ve been feeling the drain again when it comes to social media. I’m not quite sure what it is….an overload, perhaps? Whatever it is, I just find myself borderline depressed at times thinking about how much time I spend on some social media platform like Facebook. Posting updates of what I did today, a greatContinue reading “Trying to step away from social media and plug into my life”

Exit, Stage Right

Before our son was born, my wife and I were very active in community theatre. Heck, that’s even how we met, both cast in the same show many, many moons ago. We were both, whether separately or together, in usually two shows a year, but devoting a lot of our time to the theatre whereContinue reading “Exit, Stage Right”

365 days later…

Where in the world does the time go? Like a flash of light, our little boy’s birthday was upon us in the blink of an eye. It seems like only yesterday we were welcoming him back home to the cats, a slew of visitors, and introducing him to this thing called life for the veryContinue reading “365 days later…”

Imagination 101

As years have passed and I’ve moved from high school student to college student, part-time worker to full-time worker, then full-time worker in the news business (which is a 24/7 business), becoming a parent (another 24/7 job), I have found my window of free time shrinking more and more. That has meant less time forContinue reading “Imagination 101”

No use crying over spilled…juice?

Going out to eat can sometimes be a three-ring circus with a nearly one year old in tow. We especially learned that this last weekend when we tried to do dinner at a restaurant we had gone to a few times in the past with the little one. While he has often been great whileContinue reading “No use crying over spilled…juice?”

Walking for the animals

To anyone who knows our family or reads this blog know just how much of a connection we feel with the animals we share this earth with. We are all connected. From the grass we sit in, the trees that blow in the wind, to the deer that run through those green blades of foliage,Continue reading “Walking for the animals”
