A writer, father, thinker. I seek to join with others who feel compelled to join in this journey of contemplative, self-discovery.

Each of us are engaged, daily, with a wide variety of responsibilities. “Adulting” can be tiresome, draining, and we might wake up in the morning and simply not want to take part in all of the ‘grown up’ chores that await us. I know what that is like. I’ve had many “jobs” that did not […]
