The One

Ask questions. Ask them early and often. You may sound stupid in the process, but I’d rather know the answer to something than stay silent and think about what could have been. Maybe I should already know the information I’m inquiring about, but I’m going to ask anyways. I ask because I want to make […]

Excuses

“It’s just a weird time in my life,” -me. I know, I know. It’s tacky to quote yourself. I avoid it for a number of reasons, mostly because I already know what I know, and so when I learn something new, it comes from an external source. Usually my quotes come from others, from one […]

The Right Person

We’re all just working it out as we go. Living this life, hurtling through time and space at an unsustainable pace, we press on. We don’t know where we’re going, and even if we’re in the presence of good company, there’s no denying that our journey is our own. Our search for meaning and for […]

Love

I’ve avoided this subject because I can’t write from personal experience. To date, I’ve married two couples. I know it’s early, but they’re both still together, and I get a good vibe from each of them. As I stood up there and officiated each ceremony, I saw the way the couples looked at each other. […]
