Facebook and Your Past – 30. November, 2009

A short diversion today…I’ve approached the whole social networking phenomenon with a little trepidation, and this article puts a voice to one of my hesitancies…

Facebook, The Mean Girls and Me

I’ve been “interviewed” by some of my old school acquaintances, mainly in the “who are you again?” vein…I guess I was as anonymous as I always thought I was…

Father’s Day – 22. June, 2009

I had the privilege of flying 2/3 of the way across the country today, which among other things gives you the opportunity to think a little bit. I reflected on how lucky I am…

One of my favorite books is called Illusions, by Richard Bach. For those who haven’t read it, it’s the story of a man who meets and follows a “reluctant” messiah and learns a bit about life. In the book, he references another book called “The Messiah’s Handbook,” which contains short lessons that are used to teach the narrator what he needs to know. Bach has thankfully published this by itself, and my daughter gave it to me for Father’s Day. She didn’t know about Illusions, so I told her a little about it.

I showed her what I consider the most important lesson in the book…

Everything in this book could be wrong.

When I showed that to her, her reaction was essentially, “Well, that’s obvious. Why would anyone think anything different?”


I explained to her that there are a lot of people that can’t accept this lesson. In fact, a lot of suffering happens in this world because of the inability of some people to accept this.

It’s really cool to meet someone who understands this. It’s especially cool to have that person be your daughter. I couldn’t be a more proud father today if I tried.
