My wife and I have moved from California to Delaware. Tonight is our first night as guest residents in my parents’ home, the house wherein I was raised, in which we will be living for the next few months. My emotions are scattered and conflicting, and I feel somewhat raw in the present.

Second, it is an online journal for chronicling reflections on significant life events such as our move to Delaware, adjusting to life there, and additional developments as they occur. Third, the blog is intended to be a marketing platform for my creative projects and writing.Learn More
