Two years ago

The first of February marks a milestone for me, one that I celebrated with a post last year that you can read if you would like. The day marks my two year anniversary at my present job. Many of you will note that I don’t share on public social media what my job is. I’ve […]

True Love

It’s hard to believe that the month of January is already nearly over. Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. It’s the season of lovers, romance, chocolate and flowers. Stores and other venues are decorated with pinks, reds and whites and it seems as though love is in the air. But there are so many […]

Get a life

I once worked with a group of young men who were into video-gaming. They would spend a good portion of their shifts talking about the latest games, discussing strategies and plays, or talking smack to each other in regards to the games. While most of the games they played weren’t things I was interested in, […]

In the Bleak Midwinter

After a full month, those of us who live in the Northern Hemisphere have entered into the midst of the season called winter. The bleakness of this season has settled upon us. And even though I did indeed write a post just two weeks ago titled “January doesn’t stink,” there is some melancholic bitterness to […]

Shine bright

The young son of a friend of mine is such a free spirit. He is very expressive in the way that he dresses and moves. He dares to wear things that many would call unconventional, drawing attention to himself. I know that there are people who may frown at the way he is, for he […]

Just Keep Going

I had a case of the Mondays this past week. I was running a bit behind getting to work. I left in a hurry, forgetting my freshly made and not-yet-been-sipped travel mug sitting on the kitchen counter as I dashed out the door. About twenty minutes in on the job, I realized I was wearing […]

Another Way Home

The 6th of January was Epiphany, the traditional day when wise men, Magi, from the East came to see the baby Jesus, bringing with them gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. For those of you who may be non-secular or religious and are reading this blog, they are the “three kings” the Christmas Carol speaks […]

Snail mail

Last week, I posted about how I do something I do think is not that extraordinary, but others seem to think it is. I mail cards out to people. And when I say I mail cards out, I mean I mail A LOT of cards out. But you can read it by clicking here –> […]

Post Holiday

Unlike a number of my friends (if social media posts are any indication), I still have my holiday decorations up and will continue to keep them up until Epiphany on the 6th. That means, in reality, they will likely be up until the 11th, when I have a Saturday off from work and can pack […]
