I was going through a stack of photos from some of our early family camping. We have gone to so many places over the years it's hard to keep track really. These times are emblazoned on our minds. The kids were so young when we started them on this type of exploration. But in the pics...

I see the world It makes me puke I came into the kitchen singing this lyric/song. It was early morning and my daughter was at her homework desk in the connected living room. She laughed aloud at that line and asked if it was a real song. I giggled and told her, yeah it's a song but it has a...

Often, I find that my kids are so conditioned to just explore. After spending several minutes of just staring or observing something special for a period of time, I will have to look up, and often call out to another adventurous member of the family, who is now off seeing there own special...

Just what to say but, I am grateful for the experiences we share.

Never loosen the grip on our hand. A beautiful lyric from an acoustic version I heard on the forums today. Oh for how long a time I had pined for the ones who always loosened their grip on my hand. Falling away from me and not ever sure why they left. But the line is a personal favorite. One...
Making cupcakes and cake with my daughter. It is amazing watching her choose the food coloring as we made the icing. Her mind at its most creative as she puts her design into actions. These are the parts of the holidays I enjoy. The calm connection with another exploring the...

I can't even believe how beautiful it is sometimes. It's enough to make you cry. We all have things that take our time and give us spiritual fulfillment. This is just one.
Parenting can be hard. Sometimes you have to say things that you know they will not like. I am not afraid to say the difficult things. I do, rather than barking a command, always explain my reasons and have them explain the situation to me, so if I've misunderstood, I can adapt to a reasonable...

Deep in the cell of my heart there lies a desire to live, to see and to experience. Yes, there is catastrophe all around. But does that mean I cannot enjoy the life right in front of me. Life is not a prison. A beautiful twilight of San Francisco Bay
Time works it's connections to bring people closer or if unrecognized, drift people apart. I have a desire to experience my children as they are. Sometimes, by luck perhaps, we are completely aligned and it reminds me how much I like them as little growing people. I started documenting tidbits...
(Written in August 2015) When people are toxic, I don't tell them, I just dismiss them and give them very little. It's not a problem to solve, It's not a relationship to manage, It's not a matter of duty. It's playing with fire and I just don't do that. I am fiercely protective of my...

I was reading an article review of a book of someone who was in a cult. It looks to be a pretty amazing story and I thought it was wonderful how they summarized the lightbulb moment when true freedom came for them. (paraphrase) "After ages of conformity to another's ideas, I discovered...
I had lunch with some guys I play sports with. One of the guys has known me for a few years. He has came by the house and met my family. We have spent many hours traveling together and often talk about life. He is a good person but lives a little differently than I. He knows I don't watch TV...

I don't have a stance to share on the gun issue. It is extremely complicated in the US and I just don't have the expertise to make statements for either side. I will say that when I watched Obama's last press conference regarding a shooting at a college, I felt, as a citizen who wants peace, I...

I tried my camera on a quick 5 mile run in the canyon. Stacked up well over 1000 feet of climbing for a great workout. This is the single track that both my daughter and I love so much. It’s like a scramble and a very deliberate and aware running. You have to focus on your steps and obstacles...
A random hike in the east bay. Very nice day to get some climbing done and view the bay. My daughter summed it up best. Good views but not fond of the fire roads. She is such a "single track" runner/hiker girl, just like her dad. I was reflecting on the kids as I took their pictures...

You have seen my kids do glass work before. They did another class and they are loving it. This is what they made this time. It was amazing to watch them work with the glass and tools. My daughter said she wants to make dinner wear for the house. Looks like some more classes are in order then...
Life, love, music. It is a contact sport. Whether feeling through love, pushing my body to the limit, dancing with glee to music or manipulating it to recover. The nexus of my mind and my feelings are intertwined with touch and physically connected. This includes other people, but mainly it...

I went to Halloween haunt with the kids. The rides are wonderful at nighttime. The park is really scary with themes zones all over the place. Wreckage and zombies everywhere. Standing side by side with my son as we plan our route through the horror. I told him the routine on how I handle...
I believe people evolve overtime. They don’t remain stagnant, which is much different than being consistent. I believe I have changed over time. My likes, my dislikes, my loves, my hates, my hopes, my attempts, my successes and my failures have all had many incarnations. As a fan of Billy Bragg...
