…and Ye Shall Receive…

So, this weekend we had a family emergency, and I had to get my wife up to New York City to tend to her ailing mother. (I had to pay through the nose for a last-minute airline ticket…arrrgh!). In the meantime, I am spending the week between work (and a very important project) and being […]

On Milestones, Bugs, and Inspiration….

Why do we wait for milestones in our lives to reflect on where we have been, and where we are going? Why do we wait until New Years Eve to reflect on our lives, or our 50th birthday? Why isn’t it an every day occurrence? Last night I attended the 50th birthday of a good […]
