It is what it is.


I never went to summer camp. Not an away camp, church camp, YMCA, neighborhood camp... nothing. When I was my son's age I lived in Key West, had two older brothers, and my mother was a full-time mom. Summers were the stuff of classic movies - carefree and exciting. We had crushes on the girl [...]

Countless people have said "live each day as if it were your last" and "live life to the fullest." These sayings have a good deal of merit and are powerful in their own ways. They are inspiring words that make you not want to let life pass you by (another saying). For some words like [...]

We sang along. We danced for hours, years. We celebrated. We competed. We tried to frighten one another. We moon walked, badly. We made love. We connected. We laughed. We pumped our fists. We nodded our heads. We fantasized. We smiled. We listened, loudly. We two-stepped. We grew up. We played with friends. We started [...]

I work at a school that currently only has kindergarten and first grade students. Little people love to hug so trust me when I tell you kids are hugging each other and staff all day long. I try to avoid this love fest for a myriad of reasons, but mostly because I know how suspect [...]

years ago today my son debuted on planet earth (at the time he did sort of seem alien to me). And he's been the most important noun in my life ever since. He challenges me to step up my game and be a better human being. Over the years his existence made me shift my [...]

I made it. It's 12:00 midnight in my part of the world and I have not turned into a pumpkin. Today I make history - it is the first official time that I will turn 30. I plan on turning 30 every year for the next ten years, so the first one seems significant. I [...]

As you all know by now my 30th b-day is coming up. As a result I've been trying to make a move toward a healthier lifestyle. Part of it is that I just want to be sexy (ok sexier), but a big part of it is that I want to live a quality life in [...]

29 to 30

I'm counting down to the bitter-sweet (mostly sweet for the obvious "I'm alive" reasons) big day: my 30th. I have no plans for the milestone even though I've been talking about turning 30 since I turned 29. I have spent many hours over the past few months thinking back to my youth and trying to [...]

My name is Keith and I'm a Facebook holdout. For the last several months I've been leaning toward joining the club, but I can't seem to bring myself to do it. I can barely keep up with my blog, and the in-the-flesh friends I have, much less an online community. Plus Facebook seems like so [...]
