I have this magical gift.  It’s called being an INFJ.  People intuitively feel comfortable around me and without any solicitaion start sharing what’s going on in their lives.  Seriously, it happens in public with strangers all the time.  I need to write about one of my gas station visits in Nashville.  Scary. It’s quite a dichotomy […]

Since the tankless water heater […]

30 Year Old Wisdom

I’m almost to the end of my 30th year. I can’t remember if I’ve written this anywhere and shared it yet.  But here it is again if I did. I feel a lot wiser in my 30’s.  But it’s not some sage wisdom, it’s simply learning from the hardheadedness of my twenties.  In so many […]
