  • Brief Hiatus

    Hello friends, I am taking a brief hiatus from writing and will resume in January. This will allow me some time to get a bigger backlog of posts and topics together while I determine the best way to work writing into my insane schedule. Time management is important, and I want to be sure to…

  • Time: Kairos and Chronos

    Time: Kairos and Chronos

    My entire life, I feel like I’ve been in conflict with managing my time.  It feels like an odd place to be since I am striving for ways to become a better version of myself. Despite being actively aware there is a better way to behave, I have been woefully unable to create lasting change.…

    The Erney Tourney XII

    I took up the game of golf when I was 17 or so. I remember hitting my dad’s old wooden woods. That was quite an experience. My dad took my brothers and I to a small shop out near Newark, OH and we got our first set of clubs. I loved those clubs. I think…

    January 2nd, New Year’s Resolutions

    January 2nd is a clarifying day as the New Year’s Eve fog clears and day two of our newly minted resolutions begins. It often gets uncomfortable. It’s an emotional day that moves me either toward or away from future actions. As I reflect on this stage of my life, I wonder what new version of…

    In every story, there must be a beginning. For me, beginning something new, taking the first step, and “starting” can often be the biggest blocker to “doing.” As such, it has taken much too long for me to officially start writing my blog. Week after week goes by and I add to the notes folder…
