Eleventhiversary

Eleven years ago today, I married the most amazing woman I’ve ever met, and embarked on a remarkable journey that is still in its infancy. Like the great odysseys of yore, this journey has had setbacks and challenges, victories and celebratory joys, and days of endless plodding forward, trudging ever onward. Marriage isn’t a straight […]

Awaiting (September 11, 2018)

I sit, sipping warmth As the morning sun falls across the stairs You are arriving soon, but not yet here I wait to see you To meet you This house, made to be a home, Quiet Waiting Full, but empty without you Our final piece The familial puzzle nearly complete The picture on the box finally […]

Hey y’all prepare yourself for the rubberband man

Tonight, we were watching Avengers: Infinity War, and when Rubberband Man started to play, my 9-year-old turned to his sister and said, “Do you recognize what this is?” It’s important to note, my son has never heard this song. But he now associates all music from the ’70s with the Guardians of the Galaxy. As […]

PDF Expert turns 11 years old, goes half off

If you’re in the market for a Mac app for editing PDFs, but don’t need (or want) Acrobat Pro, PDF Expert is half off to celebrate their 11th birthday. At $30, it’s a steal. It’s phenomenal, and I have clients that use it as an alternative to Acrobat Reader. You can get a free trial […]

Photogenic royalty evokes grandiose narrative after night terrors.

My wife and I have been posting a secret message to social media for the last several weeks, but to make it easier for everyone to get the message, and for the sake of having one place to point to when people ask if it’s true, here you go: If that’s not obvious for you, […]

Gloriole Jump

With Destiny nearing its end and Destiny 2 ramping up for release, I feel like it’s finally time to share this microstory I wrote about my favorite ship in D1. WARNING: VULGARITY AHEAD (not profanity, I mean actual vulgar language; you’ve been warned) “Dude, I found two holes in the wall of your cockpit. What’s […]

Melodium memoriam

When I was a child, I remember listening to my father’s music and thinking that my dad must be so old to listen to music that was written so long ago: before I was even born. Now, I am 37 years old. My senior year of high school is just over half my life away. […]

One decade later…

Ten years ago, at this time, I was experiencing one of the biggest rushes of my life. No, I’m not talking about my marriage (though that’s a big one), nor the birth of my children (also up there). In fact, this rush doesn’t compare to either of those. But it’s important, because I shared it […]

Beer, fire, and the Imperial March

Finally got my grill down to the house yesterday. It’s been sitting at my parents for years and years, waiting for a home. My wife decided we should christen it with jalapeño poppers, so that’s what I’m doing. A friend of mine made a delicious English Pale Ale home brew that I opened in commemoration. […]
