"I own three watches and a watch is part of my every day attire. It is also easier to look at a watch for me, rather than reach for my phone. It also adds a touch of class I think, as it is becoming a less popular thing to wear."

A Tattoo To Remind Me

Posted on March 10, 2010 at 12:43am 4 Comments

So I've been thinking of getting another tattoo and here's my thoughts. I've had issues with depression for about as long as I can remember. I've come to the conclusion that it is probably something that will never be "cured" just as an alcoholic will always be an alcoholic. I will, someday, learn to control it and not let it rule my life but there will probably always be episodes where the black dog will return from the shadows and haunt me again.…

Real Bad Day

Anti-depressants not cutting it anymore. Not interacting with my kids or wife. Staring at the computer screen. Everything grey. Things have to get better.

Great Times

Nothing profound I just felt the need to let everyone know I had a great night with my girls. They're great kids and I'm having a moment where I realize how lucky I am.

Biggles?

Anyone here ever read Biggles, by Cpt. WE Johns? I read the books more than any other books when I was a kid. Biggles taught me more about being a man than anyone else, real or fictional. Had about half of the 95 or so books that were written. Favorites were the WW1 ones, but they were all good.
