A fork in the road and a change of plans

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I— I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference.

When you come upon a fork in the road, how do you decide which road to take? Each road offers its own benefits and risks. Each is a journey of its own with unique experiences. Each has a different outcome.

This is a question I’ve recently found myself wrestling over. My wife and I were in the process of settling down and hopefully starting a family this summer. We were ready to close on a dream we’ve had: a home on some land, however, only a few weeks from closing, I was offered a job in California. Continue reading

First cold day of 2016

Living in Florida, any cold day is a real treat. Some quickly don their winter clothing as if the temperature is 30 degrees Fahrenheit: scarf, boots, leggings, coat or jacket, etc. For me, I usually just put on my typical Florida winter collection: socks, sandals, shorts, and a long sleeve shirt.

Today, it’s only 59 . . . supposedly (it feels warmer), but considering the unusually warm weather we’ve had on the east coat this 2015 winter, I’m happy with it. Since I slept usually well and curled up in my blanket,m I figured the temperature dropped during the night.

So, what did I do? I woke up, fixed my self a cup of coffee, put my slippers on and sat on my porch.

I love the quietness the cold weather brings.
