Something silly this way comes

Hold your horses

Twiddle your thumbs

Something silly way comes

The kids and I were playing around with our names earlier.

These were the results.

Friday Fictioneers: Marbles


It’s Friday Fictioneers and this week it’s not fiction, it’s fact.

I did this.

I had these conversations.

When venting to my mother about the situation she laughed and told me that it must be genetic, because I had done the same thing with buttons.

Need I say more?

No, I didn’t think so.

AtoZ: Z is for Zen


To my beloved son on his 12th Birthday

12 years ago you came.

A small sweet thief of our hearts.

You turned our world around and remade it in your own image.

With eyes of wisdom and wonder.

With a laugh that shakes the foundation of the universe.

A son.

A brother.

A young man.

Our world is better for you being in it.

Much more zen.


I owe so much thanks to all the wonderful people at Jacklin Enterprises who went so far out of their way to assemble this incredible set for James. Mr. Jacklin, Andrea and HP, you guys are absolute super heroes.
