Are You Communicating?

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 […]

The 4 Men At My House

Two plumbers showed up one morning to do the install.  One was a slender young man, he looked younger than me, and one was a man probably in his later 40’s early 50’s. 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 […]

Life On All 8 Cylinders

Today a thought came to my mind. Life requires you to run on all 8 cylinders. My first car was a v6.  It had some get up and go, it was a dodge intrepid.  Since then I’ve owned all 4 cylinder cars.  My best friend growing up had a v8 in high school.  A champagne […]
