That really is the name of the game. Simplify. I needed to reinvent the way I write, how often, and to whom. I put it off forever because I felt for so long like I needed to preserve some sort of historical record. Well, I have my own archives and over time I might just pull out and repost some classics, but really this is about staying in touch - with myself, into the future. I want to keep track of what it’s been like to become a father. To finally own a home. To fall in love with my daughter and my wife a little more each day. This is my first Ashland summer, and it really is starting to sink in what is going on here. This is home. These are my neighbors. We are going to be here for a while. I might as well dig in a little bit. I don’t have any more explaining to do because I get to start over. What a gift.
