I sit and think… reflecting on the day.

A long car ride together with my oldest daughter

To see a college soccer game.

A journey taken in-and-of itself.

Just one stretch in the journey of life… of love.


I sit and think… reflecting on the night.

A story (Frankenstein) read together with my youngest daughter.

She picked it out.

Three chapters done; nineteen more to go before were through.

Just the beginning of a new chapter in the book of life… of caring.


A movie (Skins) watched together with my wife,

One we havent seen.  I picked it out.

From the first scene to the last, until it was done,

And we didnt even fall asleep this time.

Just another scene played out in this movie of life… of togetherness.


Up the stairs and find my son asleep on the floor,

The hockey game over.  Off to bed with him,

And tomorrow he can find out if his beloved Red Wings

Won the game.

Just another break between periods in the game of life… of learning.
