And Now a Word From The Sponsor
Welcome to my site and thank you for reading. After many times thinking, if only I had a blog, well-- here we are. This blog will feature writings on a variety of topics from roadside food, to leadership in the fire service; politics; culture- gay, straight, and indifferent, my experiences in Ohio, New York and beyond; and much much more. It's my hope that you will find it interesting and that it stirs at least some thought and discussion. I am certain you wont always agree, but that is what its all about right? Oh and one more thing: The views expressed on this site are entirely my own. They do not reflect in anyway the views or positions of my employer.

The Coming of Fall
Now we arrive at my favorite time of year. When the first crisp of fingers of autumn poke at Summer's turning eye and remind us all that life is about seasons and transitions and change. Many fight that change-- push back against the turning pages of the calendar much like they push back against their fears or their mindsets or their anger or their past. Ironic then, that letting go of that which holds us back is as easy as turning that page. If we are only willing to do it. Maybe that is why I long for this time of year. When I can let all that holds me back fall away with the brown dried leaves of the tree out front. Finally ready to allow, after a certain amount of time for rest, hibernation, and freedom, the appearance of something new and even more wonderful than what was.
