My favorite team since I was about five years old is the Minnesota Timberwolves. We haven’t made the playoffs in 12 years and it’s looking like lucky number 13 is a foregone conclusion at this point. We have a new coach and a ton of talent on the team, but we have not improved to [...]

It’s been quite some time since writing something of substance, or at least a grouping of written ideas of substance. The times, they are a changin’.
Juniper is still yet to fully bloom, but she is bright and amazing and temporal and all encompassing. She really is an amazing little thing. Skinny like a spindle. Smiling [...]
It’s December 13th and it has been consistently over freezing the last few weeks here in Minnesota. I’d say it’s a nice surprise but after the last decade it doesn’t really seem so. My memory is not nearly as good as it used to be, but it seems that as of the last decade or [...]
A few weeks back Teresa, Juniper, my brother in law David and his fiance Stephanie got in the car at about 7am and started driving to Detroit Lakes. The city is in the heart of rural Minnesota, surrounded mostly by farm land and a few lakes.David actually drove the first leg. It is a four [...]
2015 has been a truly remarkable year in terms of weather. Our summer has been filled with beautiful days and a good amount of rain, keeping the grass growing week after week. The last month has been filled with above average days, and today in early October we have 70’s and low 80’s. Fall is [...]

Oh those forgotten things.
Forgotten and remembered today.
While up at the lake for Thanksgiving I forgot the McCarthy trilogy I’d been reading in Alexandria, Minnesota with about 50 pages left. So that’s on hold. I also forgot my extremely warm winter vest in Cloquet, Minnesota.
In the mean time I’ve started rereading a classic rendition of Walden, [...]
The last month has flown by. Buying a house entails a lot of work and alterations, with no end in sight.
Generally speaking, my days look something like this: Wake up around 5am, do exercises, take Stella outside, eat greek yogurt, go online to see NBA scores and pay bills or take care of emails, go [...]
It’s bitter cold in Minneapolis. January 22nd and -9 as of now.
I find this time of year to be pretty tough most years. This year has been a bit better due to the trip to Costa Rica, but it’s tough to get up and out of bed when it’s extremely cold [...]
It’s been a sweltering summer here in Minneapolis. We’ve been routinely hitting nineties and even up to one hundred degrees lately. Many out there may be thinking, “Um, I live in the Southern half of the US?” That’s a pretty common reaction to people in Minnesota complaining. The big difference in heat up here is [...]
