Blogging from Space

Well, not really.

What better way to cast away the year long dust on a blog than to pass time on a flight from Seattle to Burbank, CA.  I have nothing of great value to bring to light.  I did not take the time to fill out a March Madness bracket this year.  The Mariners have played very well in the Spring, so their season should turn to shit in no time.

Since I last blogged, we have brought into this world a daughter.  My feelings around this event are endless and ever changing.  Reacting to this event has taken me a large amount of effort filled with a variety of emotions.  Even as she approaches the one year mark, I am stuck with the question: What does a fatther do with a daughter?  I feel strongly that this answer will evolve over time and never have a "correct" and final destination.  It is my goal to do my best to provide for the best care and guidance to my daughter as well as my son.

As more and more meaningful things fill my bucket of life, the need to care about the Mariners or Seahawks start to take a back seat, perhaps even in the third row.  With that being said, I am excited for the start of a new season for the Mariners.  I see myself following the old adage of the Brooklyn Dodgers, "There is always next year".  The Seahawks season did not end the way I would have liked, however, this is the most excited I have felt for football in March…ever.

On other notes, the GSD is still a royal pain in the ass, but getting better.  Me moved to an area of the puget sound that allows us to own 3 acres of land.  We brewed a great English Pale Ale, and are in desperate need of a new brew for late Spring/early Summer activities.

stay in touch all 2 of my loyal readers.  It is once again my hope to bring this blog back to life.
