The Beginnings of Things

The Professor, tall, bespectacled and slightly stooped from long years laboring over the various instruments of Science stepped into the classroom.  Pausing at the entrance which closed seamlessly behind him, he absently readjusted his white laboratory robes and looked around...

Long Love Working

Here’s a poem I wrote in the dead of night after a long, long day. It is what it is and I’ll not say more.

Yeah, it might be ruining our society, BUT….

I just read this article on CNN – opinion section:
Opinion: Facebook threatens to ‘Zuck up’ the human race

If that’s the case, then why do you still suck as a parent if you let your kids play them more than a hour a week?

Wants, Needs, Excuses & Procrastination

Yes.  I procrastinate.  I either invent excuses, or allow them to get in the way of what I really want to do. For example, I have a small RC helicopter that I really want to fix and get to flying again....

Vision of an ASL Friendly Eco Village

Over the years, I’ve had many ideas and visions, that would impact either our business and/or personal lives.  A few of them have really stuck hard in my mind. If there’s anything I’ve definitely learned in my personal and professional...

Writing in a Distracting Environment

I am the primary learning coach for my two sons as we homeschool them under the K-12 online curriculum.  My youngest, Lucas, is in the 2nd Grade, and my oldest, Logan is in the 4th.  Some days are a breeze,...
