Sorry for being absent from writing new material for the blog in recent weeks. My health issues have resurfaced and I will be out of pocket for several months undergoing treatment. My writing efforts recently have been focused on writing my son a sort of manifesto on how to live a good life as a man in case I’m not there to do it in person. It’s a morbid exercise, but necessary if I want to guarantee my son can read my words in my voice.
It’s been a useful exercise that I suggest everyone does. Write down what you stand for, what you believe, what is important, and how you would tell your children the way to live a fulfilling and successful life (whatever that is to you).
I might post sporadically, but probably will wait until the flip side. Thanks for reading.
