I Hope You Like It

I Hope You Like It

My column-writing ritual usually goes a little like this: I spend the week and weekend working. I start thinking about a subject to write about around Saturday. Sunday I spend a little more time thinking. The only thing I come up with is work. So I brainstorm a little more, in between catching up on […]

How Ya Livin’?

How Ya Livin’?

Woody Allen once said, “I’m not afraid of death, I just don’t want to be there when it happens.” He said it for comedic effect, but it’s actually pretty accurate. The people who are around when it happens, the ones who are left to grieve, have the enormous task of dealing with the emotions and […]

Wise Words

Wise Words

You never know when life will teach you a lesson. As a father, I’m always looking for an opportunity to teach my kids from real-life experiences. However, as a father, most things I say to my kids go in one ear and out the other. That’s why I was exceptionally grateful for an unexpected conversation […]

Emotional Rescue

Emotional Rescue

My friends without kids ask me all the time: “What is life with kids like?” I’m lying. They never ask me that. But if they did, I’d let them know that having kids is like being on a constant emotional rollercoaster. The older they get, the more twists and turns on the tracks. A friend […]

The End Is Near!

The End Is Near!

As we are nearing the final days of the school year, I’d like to reflect on the things I’ve learned about my kids’ schools. Here are some of my observations from over the years… There’s no threat of the paddle. Y’see, for some of our younger readers, school officials back in the ‘80s (and before, […]

Dear Mama: Tell Me How You Did It

Dear Mama: Tell Me How You Did It

I’ve said it before and, man, is it ringing true this week. I have no idea what I’m doing and I think my kids are on to me. It’s appropriate that I’m feeling this way on the week before Mother’s Day. Buying Mother’s Day gifts are stressful for me. I have two great moms, my […]

Writing the Future

Writing the Future

The pre-concert jitters. It’s something I haven’t had in a while. I used to get ‘em before almost any concert I went to because I was so excited. It’s a major reason why I wanted to play radio for a living. I love going to concerts. Somewhere along the way, I lost the pre-concert jitters. […]

The Surprising Gift of Giving

The Surprising Gift of Giving

I got to do something recently that I have never gotten to do. The surprising part is that it wasn’t something like kayaking down the Savannah or riding my motorcycle down the coast or any of the other things that I’ve promised myself I’d do before I turn 40… uhh, I mean 30. No, it […]

Can’t Wait for Next Year

Can’t Wait for Next Year

The long 51-week wait until the next Masters Week has begun. I’ve always compared it to the feeling I get the day after Christmas: “We have to wait a whole year?!” I guess it’s obvious that I’m one of the people that actually likes Masters Week. I’ve never really understood why people complain about the […]

Not So Funny Meow, Is It?

Not So Funny Meow, Is It?

I feel like something needs to be addressed. It’s the ever-presence of cats. They’re everywhere! Cats in the street, cats in the window, cats in my yard making my dogs attack the blinds. It’s a cat-tastrophy! Sorry, I couldn’t resist. Now, I’m not one to tell anyone not to have a pet. But can we […]
