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.

Almost exactly 10 years ago at this moment, this happened https://www.flickr.com/…/226784…/in/album-72157594222125545/ This day has me feeling a bit nostalgic, so to recognize Mason turning 10 today, here’s 10 random thoughts.

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 […]

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 […]
