Laying on the outfield grass at Bowman Field tonight, watching the fireworks set to Star Wars music as part of their ‘Star Wars Night’ celebration and TinyTot is naming off what scenes in the movies the music is from… It’s moments like these that make parenthood awesome.

I am unsure why it took me so long to get myself a #lumberjack #5950. I have wanted one since they switched logos a long time ago… #crosscutters

I find the concept of familiarity fascinating.  The fact that the human mind over time subconsciously memorizes textures, shapes, scents, sounds, emotions. It’s incredible. I say this because someone’s voice, words, the emotions can feel familiar after being away for a long period of time. Almost as if it remembers the familiar patterns it has once cherished. That same person’s body on the other hand, due to time and the overall result of years lived tends to feel awkwardly fresh and new. It is unfamiliar territory as the body readjusts to physical presence. It is an incredibly exciting feeling as it means you have a chance to once again become intimate with that person, relearning what once was learned. To explore someone else, discovering the curves, crevices, and textures of the body; to regain that wonderfully comforting sense of intimacy that results from getting to know the world via touch and sight, it’s delightful. I truly is. People take the senses for granted but what they do for us and allow us to do, it’s truly remarkable.

Life Tip #371

If a con man, who has been to prison, tells you that your idea is not a good one because they were convicted of something similar, listen. Don’t guffaw and dismiss them.

It was just a typical Saturday. There I was sitting on the carpet in my sweatpants and an old tee shirt surrounded by LEGOs and empty Kool-Aid burst containers while cartoons played on the screen in the background. As I sat, enraptured by the myriad of colored pieces and shapes in front of me I suddenly had moment of deja vu. Almost like I had been doing that same exact thing many years prior.

I don’t have time for people who don’t have time for me. If I repeatedly offer to hang out with you and find mutual times to do so and all you do is make excuses… No thank you.
