1972 Was 42 Years Ago…

Ok so as I sit here contemplating the 42 years of life that I have had the distinct pleasure to experience I got thinking about that year that I was born.  1972…I don’t remember, probably because for 7 months of it I was living in a dark, cramped womb but hey that is splitting hairs.…

The Future is NOW!!!

There are often things in our lives that take us down vastly different paths than we had originally thought we would take.  1 week ago I took a bold new step in my life when after nearly 16 years I am now on my own…no help or support from a spouse, no mommy or daddy…

Pride and Power – My Daughter is my Hero

I am a Father and there is nothing that makes me prouder than seeing my daughter grow into a powerful and independent young woman. At 14 years old, she is so very much in tune with what it is to be someone who stands up for what she believes in and is not afraid to…
