Life vs. Art

Note: First time in a while since I chimed in on the ol’ blog. When I started this two-plus years ago I envisioned blogging on a regular basis. Turns out the combination of work, raising six and four-year-old boys, and home-owning makes blogging an easier-said-than-done hobby. For the few who have followed my infrequent musings, […]

Favorite Decade of Your Life?

My 6th hour class and I had an interesting, albeit, off-topic conversation today. If you had a one-way ticket on a time machine, would you go back in time, or into the future?

In South Bend we had Tracks Records and Orbit Music. During my college years in Bloomington, we also had a Tracks, as well as Karma […]

Fear of an Open Mind

Do you believe people can change? Can people feel one way about an issue, cause, or condition, but eventually be open to change? Maybe it’s taking the time to listen to someone.
