I’m beginning to really like country music. Having a chance to see the creative songwriting process close up this past weekend only confirms how I feel. In addition to going to see my new grandson in Nashville, I also had the opportunity to take in the “Music City” experience….walking down Broadway, where there is liveContinue reading “nashville.”

As I’m writing this post, I’m laying in bed listening to Otto snoring on the hardwood floor, and I’m thinking, “Holy crap! I’m a grandfather!” Although I knew this was going to happen, the feeling I have now is much more exciting than I could have ever imagined. I was asked what I wanted toContinue reading “g-man.”
For the very first time, I started to read all of my previous blog posts starting at the beginning, nearly four years ago. I put this off for a while, as I wanted to have plenty to read, instead of looking back every couple of months, or even annually. There’s definitely a lot of growthContinue reading “looking back.”
8 things for which i’m thankful 5/1/2023.
1. FLUMP!!! The sound Otto makes when he lays down on the hardwood floor. I’ve gotten used to this in the middle of the night. 2. My friend Sara Allison Vokes. 36 years of friendship and love. A true sista from another mista! 3. The smell of lilacs in the month of May. I loveContinue reading “8 things for which i’m thankful 5/1/2023.”
For most of my life, things have felt hectic. Life has always felt like I’m doing 70 mph in a 55 mile zone. Like the hamster on the wheel, it’s been go go go, with no slowing down. I watched an interview with Mister Rogers, and he made a point about the blank spaces andContinue reading “blank page.”

1. My hang with Rob Collins in NYC this weekend….36 years of friendship, and we always pick up right where we left off. 2. Classic Broadway musicals….Camelot at Lincoln Center was FANTASTIC. 3. That’s it’s currently 1:20pm, not 12:20pm. 4. New York City bagels…..there are no substitutes. 5. Another “no snow” winter….sorry to those who’veContinue reading “10 things for which i’m thankful.”

We’re 28 days into the new year, and for the first time in years, I’ve made it more than a week without giving up my resolution. Fortunately, my resolution wasn’t to go back to the gym! My resolution was based on a piece of advice that I heard prior to the end of last year,Continue reading “resolution.”
change vs. growth.
It’s easy to come up with a cliched resolution for starting the new year…..losing weight, reading x number of books, taking up a new hobby, etc. As 2022 (one of the toughest years of my life) comes to a close, I’m approaching 2023 with a tremendous opportunity instead of just a resolution goal. My opportunityContinue reading “change vs. growth.”

I’m gonna be a grandfather. My stepdaughter and son-in-law are expecting. As rough a year as this has been, this brings me incredible joy. Instead of being “Grandpa” or any derivatives of that name, I’m keeping it on the cool side….just call me “G”….and yes, this means I’m gonna be a porkpie hat wearing, pipeContinue reading “g.
