and so it begins...

i can't think of a time in my life when there was more transition. the transition from infant to toddler that is my son elliott, the weight of being a small business owner in this economy and having to affect the lives of others based on strictly "financial" decisions, the wash of art/music/disappearing act that is limited by time and ability to be present, the stress of producing another child with all the factors that surround, and the genuine work that is required to keep marriage & family healthy under the aforementioned circumstances.

i need to make it completely clear that this is in no way, shape, or form a series of *bad* things. in fact, i couldn't embrace the situation more.

for the first time in a long time, i feel alive again. i am done sitting on the sidelines - watching and waiting for the next thing to happen. i feel that i have reached a new plateau of understanding with my wife and am ready to realign the dormant vertebrae in my life with the rest of the backbone.

i have been blogging since 2007, but only as a passerby. while i have no predisposed idea of what this may become, i am done ignoring what it could be.

here's to the fractured, crazy world we live in and the commentary we create as human beings.
