I turned 50 this week, rather quietly.
No trips anywhere, I was going to at least take the day off, but since my co-worker was sick all week I did not want to leave the place unstaffed, so I came in.
My FB feed was full of birthday wishes, and as I drove into work that beautiful morning I took stock in life.
I am blessed with a wonderful family, the joy of my life. I have times struggling with whether I even am worthy to have such a wonderful wife and two young ladies.…Continue
I was minding my own business, driving down the road when I looked over at my five weeks pregnant wife. I notice she’s crying, and (silly me) I asked what was wrong. “I don’t know! Nothing.

As the meeting began I suddenly felt like I was back at square one, and…Continue
In instinctive anticipation, every morning, around quarter after seven – about forty five minutes before my alarm goes off – I open my eyes and shuffle and twist my corpse like body into a confused state of existence.
