Writing with a Life

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.
