As I go through life, I observe many things and if I try, I can often find the humor in the things I see or even a deeper meaning than what is superficial. This is about life as I see it with a bit of the humour I find in it along the way. I have many generations of family history to draw on, plus the more recent perspective of being a father to a young child who enables me to see things through his eyes. As a native Southerner, I like to weave all this against a backdrop of a culture unique in the United States that is part of who I am.
I never imagined myself writing a blog, a book or even a newspaper article but have found that I enjoy committing words and thoughts to paper…its like taking stuff out of your mind so you can look at it with your own eyes and see more than just a reflection of yourself in a mirror. Words, when used wisely and skillfully can be used to pursuade and inform, to teach and enlighten and in some cases, they transform us to other places, other times, even other realities. It is my hope that you will find yourself remembering similar stories and things as my writings attempt to take you to places along with me and that you will find the humor that I find in them.
