gentle reader, we all face challenges. every single day of the week of the month of the year of our lifetime. some days those challenges are epic in nature. some days those challenges are minor blips on our radar. i always tell people facing epic challenges that we have to have those difficult days in order to appreciate the good...

gentle reader, i am about to share with you a song that really resonates with me. it's a cover. the original is pretty good. but this cover? it outshines the original, in my book. the emotion in this david's voice gives me goosebumps. give it a listen...see what you think yourself: i hope you all enjoy a fabulous weekend with...

gentle reader, i have been a photography buff for a very long time. I was in high school when i received my first 35mm camera. i remember blowing through 7, 8, or maybe 10 rolls of 36 in just a few days. i couldn't wait to get those rolls developed and see what my mind had captured. i'm pretty sure...

gentle reader, it was a big weekend around here! three weeks ago, kiroman had what was supposed to be outpatient surgery that turned into one night in the hospital. the easy procedure became a tad bit more complicated than anticipated but he is healing nicely, taking it easy and following post-op orders! which were to take three weeks off work....

gentle reader, it is always amazing to me to realize how fast time passes. muscle barbie recently posted on social media about her very real, very personal, very destructive, very depressing, very emotional time period in her life. she's transparent about that time in her life. if you are friends with her on any of her social media, you have...

gentle reader, i had quite the experience today on our city's expressway. i was on my way to pick up my ring and decided the best route would be the interstate to the expressway. which was great, in theory. actually, it was great until we had to do the merge thing. why is it when people see that damn sign,...
