In this blog, I hope to discuss a variety of topics -- from spirituality to politics to parenthood. My hope is that the discussions will delve deeply into whatever is being discussed, to go beyond assumptions in the hope of finding some deeper truth, some deeper meaning.

My father was born on this day in 1936.
He died just about exactly two years ago now, so today carries its own kind of sadness. But I also find myself profoundly grateful for his life, for his years of quiet, gentle fatherhood to my siblings and I.
Because he lived, I live. Because he lived, my children are possible.
