Walking the Walk

My usual birthday tradition is to reflect upon and then write about what the last year of my life has taught me. I spend the actual birthday solo and introspective, to pay attention to the lessons that sometimes fly past our busy lives. And yet, this year, I did not get the chance to carry […]

I have always had specific dreams. Maybe it’s the Piscean in me but sometimes I love to dream in detail. One of my longest running dreams was to be married and expecting a baby and my pregnant wife gets a random craving and I delightfully go and make it happen. Just always seemed like it […]
