Dad, ah-Dad. He, in the middle of our stuff, allows us to dream. Sometimes, those dreams come true far beyond what we, ourselves, could even imagine. Read more

STANDING FIRM I was talking to a friend of mine a week or so ago and we circled back to some people we knew in high school and where are they now. I sometimes can’t remember my own name so remembering people from a half century ago seems like a waste of energy. But my friend can remember names, faces, birthdays, what they were known for and maybe who their History teacher was. And when we started to talk about... Read more

NICE THINGS I have come to realize I like nice things. No, not like a Ferrari or a Lexus. Have you ever ridden in a Ferrari? You sit low like you’re sitting on the street, traveling at 80 miles an hour in second gear from stop like to stop like. It’s like that roller coaster ride at Disneyland’s California Adventure.

The post was talking about ‘here is to strong women, may we know them, may we be them, may we raise them.’      …about mothers…. I used it to write about mothers after it... Read more

OKAY, IT’S YOUR TURN Okay, so a week from today is Father’s Day. It is to celebrate our dads because last month we celebrated our mums and now its dad’s turn. But for a chunk of families, there is no dad. He left. Maybe it is you. Maybe the guy next to you, or down the street.      I’m not the father type… Maybe you found yourself saying you didn’t want to ‘be tied down,’ or ‘wasn’t the father type,’... Read more
