Global Thoughts — 5 February 2015

Global Thoughts — 15 December 2014

Central Park, New York City

A friend said to me “You know why we get to vote in the US? Because our votes don’t matter.” I thought that was amazingly profound.

Global Thoughts — 1 November 2014

Palmetto Bluff, South Carolina

I reached a milestone today. After a quarter century of roommates and a wife, I had to password protect my PC at home. Done in by my 7 year old who decided he likes going to Amazon and seeing what he can buy.… Continue Reading →

Niagara Falls, June 2014

I find myself picking up about 100 tiny rubber bands every evening after my kids have dropped them all over the apartment.

Global Thoughts — 12 August 2013
