The Grip of Parenthood

Parenthood is funny. The longer I’m a parent the more I realize I don’t know what I’m doing.  Every now and again I flirt with poetry. This blog has always been more about exploration than anything else. I want to thank my good friend Andre from birthedintofatherhood.com who really helped me rearrange some incoherent thoughts […]

Seeing the Field

Seeing the field isn’t the same as just looking at it. I swear some of the most spiritual moments I have ever had came on a baseball field. I walked past an empty field just yesterday and it was like an old friend was waving. Inviting me to visit. Welcoming me with a warm hug. […]

Aside from the physical workouts that I’ve had, I have learned a great deal about myself as well – or in some cases, I have remembered things about myself that I have long forgotten. Since the […]

Keep Moving – Dadlete

Sometimes you just have to keep moving. Sometimes that is a challenge in and of itself. Recently, I learned that even the simple act of walking can make a world of difference. In a world where the latest fitness craze is found on a website or in a crowded gym, sometimes all you have to […]

Dadlete Backyard Basketball 

I have always loved basketball. The first hoop I ever owned? It was a breakaway rim that my father got from a co-worker. We had no backboard or pole, so my dad attached it to a hunk of plywood, we painted a square on it, bolted it to a ladder, and tied that ladder to […]

Overcoming Obstacles – Dadlete 

“The only use of an obstacle is to be overcome. All that an obstacle does with brave men is, not to frighten them, but to challenge them.” – Woodrow Wilson Here’s the story of how this Dadlete overcame an obstacle – or a whole course of them. I like comfort. I like predictability. I disdain […]
