One More Saturday Night

It’s our last Saturday on Tanager Trail. Four years of chili cook-offs, bbq’s, backyard movies and so much laughter and happiness, I can’t even begin to quantify how much we’ll miss this place.

This home, this yard, these neighbors…simply the best. While we’re certainly movin on up to Barton in terms of available space to live and breathe, I doubt we’ll ever have it quite this good again in terms of communal breadth.

Here’s to the good times, Tanager. And here’s to all of you neighbors that made this such a pleasant stay.


Mind The Gap

Lizz’s father passed away this morning. I’ve been searching for just the right words…but I’ve come up empty. I want to say something to her and her sisters to help ease their pain, yet all I think I’m really able to do is just be here; to keep myself available to help with whatever they need as soon as they need it. And to stay that way.

The only thing I can say is to you, reader of whatever this is, wherever you are. I’d ask that even if you’ve been driven apart, and no matter what differences may have been keeping you that way, stay (or GET) close with your parents, siblings, and children. Please note that I speak of connection, not necessarily proximity.

Life is way too damn short to allow distance to separate you from the most important thing you’ll ever have in this world: family.
