It’s Eli’s Musical World…I’m Just Singing Backup In It

There are few things that get you going as a parent more than your kid singing the ABC song in his cute little kid lisp…

Don’t Delay Joy

Several years ago, while we were living in North Carolina I did a lot of yoga. There are many benefits of yoga; a lot are physical in nature, some are of a decidedly more spiritual kind. One of the best things it did for me spiritually was to make me to slow down and breathe. […]

Children’s Toys Scare Me

At first, I didn’t realize this truism: toys are scary. I was too busy being sleep deprived after Eli’s birth to notice. Awareness crept up on me, as Eli accumulated more and more toys.

You don’t believe me. I can tell. In fact, you are thinking that I am sleep-deprived and hallucinating…

Old Friends

I’ve been keeping a longhand, personal journal since February 17, 1989. I was 16 when I started writing down my daily insights, insecurities, and idiosyncrasies. I carried it to and from class every day. I spilled drinks on it and wrote in it when class bored me to the edge of sleep. It has been […]

4 Things

Four movies you would watch over and over:
1. when harry met sally
2. the american president
3. […]


The other day when I got home, Misty and Eli met me at the door. “He said, ‘I love mommy’ today!” she said excitedly, Eli clinging to her. “Say ‘I love daddy!’”

Eli reached out. “Yaaah!” he shouted and punched me on the shoulder.

It’s good to see that he’s learning to speak both Female and Guy.

Geof Rocks Cleveland

We finally have a site (and it’s up and running). Now Stephen and I can go about making the pretty, pretty things for the world to view.

Strange Looks

I picked Eli up from his daycare today. Daycare is totally the land of moms and minivans. Whenever I pick him up, I get stares that can be broken down into two categories: Don’t steal my child! and Why don’t you have a job? The former looks come from moms who subtly or not-so-subtly move […]

Driving With No Permit

Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday night, Misty went gallivating about and left me alone with Eli. No one but me to watch over him, take care of him, bathe him and put him to bed.

I’ve done this plenty of times, but each time I feel like I’m staring at the innards of a bomb, one of […]
