Thank you for stopping by!
This is a personal blog about things that matter as filtered through the mind of an educated, opinionated American male.

Lately, there's been a bunch on here about writing, blogging, family, and marriage.
And then, on other days, it will just be blather -- but at least it will be in my voice.
