weird, man.

I think I fell down a rabbit hole. Two plus years since I wrote here. I guess there was no particular reason why I stopped other than life, man. And also the nagging feeling that one day my kids might feel entirely too exposed on the internet. But time and again over the last two years I’ve come here, scrolling, searching and reveling in the stories of their lives. At times I’ve even read aloud to them…and sometimes them to me. I mentioned yesterday that I might start writing here again and they both pleaded for that to be true. So I guess, here we go.

Chances are there will be lots fewer pictures and less specific stories but who knows. What I do know is that I’ve missed the outlet of writing. Something about pecking at these keys is cathartic…even if the only catharsis I seek is from the passage of time. Because the truth is that the day to day dull ache that I feel is over how quickly it’s all going. The kids are ten and twelve now. TEN AND TWELVE. Hold me. To make no mention of how old Brent and I are.

So I guess that’s why I’m back. Time is passing, kids are growing, life is marching on and the only way I know to slow it down is by celebrating every last second of it.
