I’m an Uncle. My nephew, Patrick, is about to turn a year and a half. Which is strange considering he was literally born yesterday. 

I gotta say, being an uncle is super fun. We live in the same town, and it’s one of my great joys to be able to spend time with him, see...

I wouldn’t necessarily call my sister Anneclaire “New Age.”

That being said, she’s definitely not NOT “New Age” either. 

From Zumba to Yoga. From to Ayurveda to Astrology. From the meanings of minerals to the benefits of acupuncture, my sister searches for God not just w...

Today’s post is about another brief encounter.

Sorry I haven’t posted in a couple of days. I was in Atlanta getting treatment, my back and hips are killing me, and with the Iowa Caucasus and the State of the Union and the fact that The Bachelor has been on two nights this week, it’s been a lot. 

I promised on Monday...

“I need you to tone down your politics on Facebook.” That was what my dear sweet mother said to me on Saturday. Not that my mom is pro-censorship, it’s just that 98% of my extended family are Republicans and she can’t stand the thought of them being mad at me.
