Writing was a core part of my life from my first poem at the age of 15 until I returned from the Peace Corps at age 24. Since then, life has taken hold. I have a wife of two year. I have had a career for four years. I’m about to buy my first house. The thing is, my writing never stopped. What I felt comfortable sharing has changed though. I have spent most of the past five year reflecting on my life.
I kept a daily journal in the Peace Corps. Since my return, I’ve kept a career journal to reflect on the 40 hours I spend sitting a desk. It is very different writing from the days of poetry and novels–but it has helped me grow as a writing. And I hope to share what I can in the days, weeks, and months ahead. I am currently searching my harddrives from the past few years to see what I can post.
I’ve added two pieces in this latest update.
Municipal Broadband for Greeley, Colorado. As I returned home, a debate was raging in my city about the pros and cons of a municipal broadband. This is the editorial I wrote for the Greeley Tribune.
The Family Legacy. My father’s parents died exactly one month apart. After 64 years of marriage, my grandmother died on December 7th, 2017. After only a month without his life partner, my grandfather died on January 7th, 2018. This is my memorial to them.
I hope you are well. Thank you for your continued support.
