Cosmic Terrors and Happy Meals

When I was little our family would occasionally drive west 2 1/2 hours to Chicago for a weekend event. Be it the Brookfield Zoo, a White Sox game, the Science and Industry Museum, or the Field Museum. These were isolated events because my dad wasn’t a fan of Chicago traffic, so it had to be […]

Ooh La La

Maybe it’s the irony of life or the universe thumbing it’s nose at me, but with each passing day I’m truly feeling that expiration date on my existence getting closer and closer. Getting closer to death as we age isn’t ironic, but the fact I keep getting more content in life and happy within it […]
