The Mid-Life Question

The Mid-Life Question

I’ve never really had a mid-life crisis. It seems somewhat ridiculous to think that one could somehow reverse the effects of life by veering dramatically off course, as some do. Life is like a moving sidewalk and it’s hard to fight its forward motion. Even if we try to pretend we’re staying in place or […]

It’s that time of year again. Even if you haven’t put away the decorations, I suspect you have spent the past few weeks putting away enough food and drink for the both of us. And I’m right there with you. Now, it’s time to get back to work, back to school, and back to the […]

Sit Before You Leap

I think I have a bit of a split personality. At times, I lean towards a stereotypical male approach of fixing things. If the faucet drips, I’m on edge until I de-drip it. If there is a squeak in a door hinge, the sound will drive me nuts until I oil it. And if my […]

Just Turn Your Perspective Over

What drives me crazy about politics is that we usually only hear about the views on one side or another. Even though there are gray areas to almost every issue, many people refuse to see an alternative view. And unfortunately, if we’re not careful, we can go through life with limited perspectives just like that. The […]
