  • Jude is 10 years old today

    Jude is 10 years old today. As I did on the occasion of Mason’s tenth birthday, here’s a few randomly assorted memories I have about the day Jude was born. 1. Modern medicine at its most evolved. A planned, scheduled birth. Keturah was scheduled to give birth around 9 am and we were supposed to […]

  • Mason is 10 years old today

    Almost exactly 10 years ago at this moment, this happened…/226784…/in/album-72157594222125545/ This day has me feeling a bit nostalgic, so to recognize Mason turning 10 today, here’s 10 random thoughts. Mostly from that day. 1. It was a long day. Keturah went into labor the afternoon before, while she was at work in downtown SF. In […]

  • Wow, it’s been a whole year

    Every January for the past  4 or 5 years, I resolve to write a blog post. I like writing. I don’t think I’m particularly great at it, but I do like it. And I perceive writing to be something I can improve at if I simply actively write something every day. That’s why I want […]

  • So…Why Sudbury?

    Keturah held our first gathering of friends at our place over the weekend.  Partially a BBQ.  Partially a housewarming party with a lot of kids play date flavorings (there was a bouncy house after all).  We called in Sudtoberfest. Lots of people I haven’t seen in quite a long time.  Some over 15 years. Anyway, […]

  • Mission Accomplished – Reflecting on moving cross country

    Complete.  The long transition that Keturah, Mason, Jude, and I began in Northern California this past April and took us through a summer in Connecticut, finally came to a conclusion in Sudbury, Massachusetts on September 1 when we closed and moved into our new house. Moving a family of four from one coast of the […]

  • While I had the flu

    The first sign of the flu came to me in the form of lower body aches last Thursday morning.  Bu that afternoon, it had become a full body ache and I was done for.  I would be completely bedridden for the next four days.  Then mostly bedridden for another one.  Only this morning did I […]

  • Keturah + J.J. = 10 years

    What I knew is that it was at some point this month.  And in fact, I got major points for not only remembering, but for recognizing the occasion with a gift that I gave to Keturah while we were in New York the other day.  But I didn’t know the exact day in the the […]

  • The post where I finally talk about leaving San Francisco

    I’ve had a hard time getting myself to actually write this blog post.  In fact, I can’t believe I’m about to type the very next sentence. My wife, our two sons, and myself are moving away from the San Francisco Bay Area. When I moved to San Francisco in 1999, it was a dream come […]

  • My war on junk mail

    About 6 months ago, I decided to I wanted to do something about the crap that was filling up my mailbox.  I’m not talking about my email inboxes.  Yes, there’s a lot of junk that finds its way in there, but unsubscribe links and filters are adequate ways to wage digital war on your email […]
