World Suicide Prevention Day, 2015… It’s not just creative voices that are sometimes silenced by social media.
It’s impossible to fit someone’s story, background, struggles, or underlying issues into a post. You can’t know them or the reasons for their actions in a status update. Read more
The other night, I was driving to the airport, to settle down for my semi-sort-of nightly gig. My jams are playing, it’s still semi-sort-of light out (Which is a cause to celebrate for any third shift dude or dudette!), and the speed limit on the last road I take to reach the airport is 55.
I can drive 55. Especially with all the windows open and the jams playing. 55 at 56 (years) feels like 70.
Old I am getting. Say this not did you need to. Read more
This is a request to the parents out there, taking their little bundles of joy (and drool) on a fun-filled flight across how ever many miles to show them off / let them get loved on / get a instant babysitter at Gee-Gaw and Pee-Paw’s place.
As for the big bundles of joy (and drool), you’re on your own with them.
My request: Get off the plane and head down the ramp. Do not stop for anything – an undercarriage flush, an oil change (or changing the “filter”), getting the fluids topped off (or drained), or any detailing you might think of doing before you come ’round the bend to the sounds of delight and screaming.
Just. Get. Down. Here. Read more
It’s getting dark earlier. And I find that, honestly, sucktastic.

With apologies to Robert Frost…
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I –
I took the one less traveled by.
But then I got bored so I broke through the various plant thingies, went ape crazy, and wandered around aimlessly for a long time. Read more
If you’d like proof – real, tangible proof that the concept of personal space is dead, or at least on life support and someone’s hand is on the plug…
Come join me at the airport. Read more
Ok – let me be clear about something – I have no issues with Rob Bell.
I think he may have “jumped the shark,” but that’s just a private conviction…
Between me and you, that is. Read more
In the course of listening through the Bible in a year, thanks to the Daily Audio Bible, one will come eventually to a romp through the book of Isaiah. Read more
Nomadic career path.
That’s perhaps the most eloquent summary of my journey thus far.
It certainly beats the heck out of “Aimlessly searching for purpose,” “Futilely looking for something he’ll never find,” or “Has no idea what he wants to be when he grows up, and shows no signs of ever growing up.”
Yup – nomadic career path. Much nicer. Read more
