Aging: The good, the bad and the ugly
As I was writing this blog, I was on an airplane at 30,000 feet. I was on it for nearly 10 hours and could actually feel my skin drying from the altitude and lousy air circulation. I see now that I added a few new lines to my collection. When we landed and I stood... Read more »

Having children: Make sure you can accept them no matter what, or please don't have them
It’s been a very long time since I plunked away at my computer to share my thoughts.

#Love Wins: Marriage for all, this my friends is something worth writing about
It’s been a long time since I’ve put my thoughts into writing. Sometimes something that is important to us is interrupted by events that we have no control over.

The age of innocence: where did it go and will we ever have it back?

Things aren't important. Well yes, sometimes they are
