Parenting can be like a lot of modern video games. It does not come packaged with any instructions, just a list of credits telling you who made what. The expectation is that you figure it out as you go along. You receive skill points (XP) for achievements, ...

A waste of fuel?
This morning at the gas station, I observed a full sized diesel truck left unattended with its engine running parked directly in front of the store's entrance. As I walked up to the main doors, I glanced into the truck's cab to see if there was anyone insid...

My sweet girl, today is your birthday. For the last nine years, I have enjoyed observing your adventurous approach to what it means to be a girl. Living in your world has been a blessing and a constant source of joy. If I am honest, being the father of a daughter occasionally makes me nervous.

A few coworkers around the office have given me the nickname Gandalf - the great wizard from JRR Tolkien's Lord of the Rings books and The Hobbit. They have not given me that name because I am a wizened old man gifting sage advice and calling in giant Eagle...

Taking a Mulligan
My brother loves golf. As far as I am aware, he is not a particularly adept golfer but he enjoys playing the game. Even with his armature skills, he considers golf to be a calming experience. More of a leisurely pursuit than a sport. When the two of us get ...

monotone
Recent personal revelation: when I get nervous, I speak in monotones. It doesn't happen often. One of the side effects of parenthood has been increased difficulty in certain emotions. I do not scare easily. It takes a lot more to startle me. And I rarely ge...

The Bible Verse I Wish was Never Written
