Half-Full / Half-Empty?


2008 is half full...or half-empty...it's half done. Can you believe it?! Next month is the halfway mark...then Christmas is here, again. Whew!

But before that, Georgia turns 4 in July. Four years old!

But before that, in June I've been working in DC for four years! How ironic, Georgia's age will always reflect such a change in my family's life. As our first child (for now anyway), she'll represent the wonderful change Kim and I were thrust into dubbed parenthood. And her age will represent the change of relocating to a new area for as long as we hang here.

Although, Kim and G haven't been here for four years. Only 3 for them. Yeah, there was that whole "house didn't sell for a year thing." But all things work out in God's timing.

Speaking of, I've begun writing a book. Actually, if I had it my way, I'd be an author today writing all sorts of stuff...fiction, parenting, poetry. Georgia's the inspiration for this current project. The question is how long will it take to write...and will anyone buy it? :)

Time will tell...as it flies by...

I Don't Get Lent

At the risk of offending or disappointing some people...I just don't get Ash Wednesday or Lent. Every year, nearly a week before Ash Wednesday, the posts start coming in about what people are considering giving up for Lent. The list is rather diverse. From coffee, sodas, and candy to social media, TV, and video games. I often wonder if people are just trying to outdo their friends. "Hey, look at what I'm giving up for 40 days! Bet you couldn't do that! But I can cuz I'm doing it for..." And that's when I my mind ponders...why are these people giving up stuff for 40 days? Is it for themselves? For God? For their church? All the above?

Die Rush Limbaugh!

On the Eve of New Year's Eve, Rush Limbaugh is rushed to a Hawaii hospital with chest pains. News reports mention his condition as "serious" but little information is available. Hours later, it's reported that he's "resting comfortably" at the hospital. The hours in between paint a pathetic picture of our country: New York Daily News described Limbaugh as a "radio loudmouth" and a "right-wing talk show host." The article also mentions that Rush's "nemesis" President Obama and "target of Limbaugh's bile" Nancy Pelosi were also vacationing in Hawaii this week.

Grateful During Unemployment

Two years have passed since I last scribed in this blog. Much life has transpired during that time. Too much to really unpack here. Then, I was a few months into a new public sector role with the City of Baltimore and starting to pursue the dream of rebooting the paranormal broadcast TV news series I co-created with Darren Dedo called "Unexplained" as a YouTube docu-series "Unexplained Cases."  Today, I am unemployed and "Unexplained Cases" has grown but has yet to generate revenue.  In July, I was dismissed from both my part-time weekend job at Grace Community Church and my City of Baltimore job. I've never had the pleasure of being released from two jobs in a month. Technically, I was released in June from Grace and my separation date was July 3. My last day of work at Baltimore was July 23 and my separation date was September 23. Unless one has been through an extended period of unemployment, one cannot understand the emotions that are stirred. For
