First Time Fireworked

Posted by on July 3rd, 2013, under NOTEBOOK

I think people love fireworks because they paint the sky with the very same emotional reaction we have when we see the people we love. This Vine represents, I believe, the first time Finn saw fireworks. You might notice the change in his face from the moment before to the moment after. It’s sort of […]

“‘Give me a kiss without tongue.’ Something I should not have to say to my toddler.” -Avara   You’d think she was talking about me and not my three-year-old son. You’d be wrong.

“Mama, I’m your son. Son is a different word for love.” -Finn (April 2013, 3.5 years old)  Sometimes, the simplicity of youth can trump even the greatest mind of those elders who’ve seen it all.

The Charlie Brown Question

Posted by on February 27th, 2013, under NOTEBOOK

Dreams Float

Posted by on February 15th, 2013, under NOTEBOOK

Posted by on February 8th, 2013, under NOTEBOOK

Seriously, I often spend more time in the car than I do laying in my bed or prancing around my house. I used to prance so much. I’ve been forced into doing things on the run. I’m all for mobile offices. And this video depicts a scene as an actor and social media guy and […]

Hero for a Day

Posted by on January 30th, 2013, under SNAPSHOTS

So, we’re on this insane road trip when my wife texts me a message. I’m sitting in the backseat of the car and zoning out with my earbuds. It was this image, and the words, “His words. Not mine.” All the onions. All the dust in my eyes. He gave me a gift I’ve wanted […]
