What's the Point of Merry Christmas?
Christmas has been a little ... disheartening this year, for a number of reasons. One of them is Target. I went there today. I know, bad idea. I found myself wandering the final aisle, looking for my 4-year-old son's requested box of candy canes for Santa's...

It was about love, and the courage and faith that turns death into life.
Rest well, Kalissandra. Rest well, Nicolas. Rise and bear witness.
Where, O Zika, is thy sting?"

I waited for him to fart and looked up techniques for releasing newborn gas. I may have purchased a device called "The Windi." ...

This is intention No. 952 to write this blog since my second son, Joshua, was born eight weeks ago. For the first four weeks, even walking up to turn on the computer seemed an insurmountable task in the midst of feeding, pumping, changing, washing and the i...
