On Character and Union

A little over a year ago I took my son, Isaiah, to an event on campus.
If I remember correctly, we arrived a few minutes after the scheduled start time; things were still getting set up.
We stood in line at a table providing crushed ice and cotton candy; the cotton candy machine wasn’t fully warmed up and ready.
Cotton Candy

Isaiah chose the cotton candy over the shaved ice so we waited.
We were in a line that wasn’t open yet, and we were at the end of that line, so we waited.
We saw people coming to the shaved ice line, getting their refreshment, and going along their way.
And still we waited.

This was only about four minutes but to Isaiah it was painfully long.

Repost: We Do Not Talk About These Bookshelves

Every other week my blog will feature a reposted work. I had been a contributor on two different sites that have since closed or no longer include blogs. I will be reposting pieces that had originally been featured on one of these two sites.  

This was originally posted October 06, 2011

I put together some new bookcases yesterday.  While doing the task I was reminded of the movie Fight Club.

Is This Real Life?

In July, I was a bachelor.

My wife was able to get a head start on our vacation and took the boys to visit friends and family over three weeks before I had time off work.
