I suppose we are all a little of both. Something grabs us early before those around us pick up on it, while another gets to us after it’s passé because we’re in a slower headspace.

I think of myself as a slow processor. Not because I’m waiting for proof or…

For the past decade I’ve been Dad. Serious job. Serious outcomes in my hands.

Recently I’ve had to play a bigger game. My ten year old’s Self is ever more on display and in the face of his Mom and I. Good and frustrating (not bad). In the process, I’ve…

Serial killer of much. Flashing that deadly yellow light and waving its sharp flag at you.
