A Sports Page Full of Emotion

October 25, 2009

 I was sitting in my study reading the sports page, in it, a story about The San Francisco 49er’s visit to Houston this weekend (this is the Sunday morning edition, so the game had not been played yet). The reporter was writing about the Houston homegrown Mike Singletary, the legendary linebacker for the Chicago Bears, […]

Joe. The Life (Not Death) of a Salesman

October 24, 2009

  Joe. On this beautiful Saturday afternoon in a Houston suburb, where the the humidity was low and the dragonflies hummed lazily through the air. We heard a knock on the door. Joe. My wife goes to answer the door, but I stop her. I have become more suspicious as of late. The world is […]

Inside The Mind of a Maniac

October 22, 2009

Women on Wednesday: The Strength of A Woman

October 6, 2009

I have probably spent less than 20 hours with my family over the last week (including time spent sleeping) due to work and business obligations. In this time, both of my kids have gotten sick. Bae has come down with a case of the flu despite getting the shot. The Boy followed a few days later […]

The Man Makes The Shoes Makes The Man

October 2, 2009
