New Things, new things

So in the year of 2010 I face the daunting milestone of 30. I know, I know it's not that bad. However there is a small voice inside me that measures me against some preconceived notions of who I am now and where I thought I'd be at this point.

In a lot of ways I have come up short, to the expectations of a child, teen, and mid twenties type mind.

But at 29 I look at my life and I really am humbled by how good I have it.

A beautiful, trusting and supportive wife who lives for me truly and deeply.

I have ever bullshit gadget you could want, some I really don't need.

Yesterday I bought my first adult car.

I'm not writing this to brag rather to serve notice to myself that just because I'm not some published writer or rich son of a bitch does not mean that I am lacking.

I truly am where I should be and have never been happier.

California: The Coast is Shrinking

Major floods in California. The ocean creeps ever closer to Arizona.

Maynard turns into a prophet...

And I wholeheartedly agree, "Fuck L. Ron Hubbard."

Rainy Days

Rainy days in California. I can't remember it looking this gloomy for this long.

Normally this would be good writing weather but I find myself pulled in too many different directions.

To blowing our resolutions before the month is up!

New Year, New Beginnings

One of my new year resolutions was to blog more. It's the fifteenth of January and this is my second post.

Oh, well...

There is some stuff coming up early this year and therefore with a new outlook I decided for a new layout. I might change my mind in the future so please bear with the construction.

More to come later...
