My father died two years ago as of this writing. I’ve written about him before. I miss him just as much today as I did then. I glance at his picture in my sanctum, black-and-white, as he measures some piece of something in a workshop at Ma Bell. That signature small smile he’d get on […]Read more "On The Second Anniversary of My Father’s Death"
A break from my regular nonsense for one of those important memories. I’m not going to recount the entire story in a fresh writing—I am happy to provide a link to the copied MySpace post that I wrote O, so many years ago—but today is that special day when I remind myself that it wasn’t […]Read more "My Annual Post to Remind Myself I Almost Wasn’t Here"

You may recall last spring when I took it pretty hard that I messed up my elbow and dropped […]Read more "The Dark Knight Triumphant: The Mudder Recap"
My father died a year ago as of the publishing of this blog. No matter how you measure the time, it’s both so far and so near.

I remember […]Read more "On the First Anniversary of My Dad’s Death"
