I made a fun trip today. On a hot July day the crossroads of Jazz and Baseball called out to me for exploration. Traveling to 18th and Vine in the old heart of Kansas City puts you at the doorstep of the Negro League Baseball Museum and The American Jazz Museum. I feel lucky to have this in my hometown and at the same time I ashamed to say that this was my first visit. Both are amazing and worth the time it takes to walk through. A visit to both is a total of $10 which I think is... Continue reading

I am now on day 17 of my sabbatical... I am finally starting to settle into a routine. This week and next should be interesting. Gabby has swim lessons at 10:40 every day at the rec center. Day one was okay. She didn't want to blow bubbles in the water, but we did get some leg kicks. We will see if tomorrow is any better. The search continues for things that will interest me going forward. I have some ideas, but nothing that is jumping off the page at this time. Finding time to write when I am in the...

When I went to pick up Gabby yesterday there was a mother walking out with her two children, a little girl and little boy. The boy was maybe 3 or 4. From off in the distance there was the sound of a firetruck racing down the road. As the truck was getting closer and the siren was getting louder the boy said something that made me smile.... "Somebody is in trouble." No telling what the issue was... I hope it was something simple and no one was hurt. It was nice to hear this boy acknowldge that there are people... Continue reading

12 hours from the next stage… So as I begin to type this I am roughly 12 hours from setting out on the next adventure in my life…. I will walk out of the company I have worked for the last 5 years without a job or any clue what I will do next for money. Let the quest begin. For the last 2 years I have been “learning” a new skill called product development. There were few options for me when the client I supported decided to take their business in house. This was the first thing to come along and I jumped on it without really knowing what I was getting in to. The first 16 months were a wash. With little guidance and less support I was adrift at sea as it were. It was not a very productive time and I think that is where the initial seed was planted to move away from the organization. As I became more familiar with the actual duties and timelines of the position realized that this was not the right fit for me…. However it took the push from outside to push me over the edge and cut myself loose. My wife sent me a text after sitting through a session where the speaker told the audience that if you are not happy going to work every day then you need to get out. This does not mean that you will be in love with what you are doing all the time, but to dread spending time at the location that takes up most of your time and energy is unhealthy. It was starting to impact our relationship and my impact as a father to a 9 month old. The last things I want is to be a bad husband and horrible father. So I set off into the unknown… and that is okay. This will be a time to reflect on what I have done and what I want to do. I have tried to think of it as an evolution. To rise up stronger like the great phoenix. Out of the ashes comes a reborn, stronger, more focused person ready to tackle something that I will look forward to most days… Continue reading
