  • My youngest son just turned half. Not a year yet and he is all visceral and fluids and every eye movement is full of wonder at this new world.

    My eldest just turned ten. A decade of fatherhood. We survived it, holding each others hands. At a Maker Faire recently, he wrote the LEGO poem. He is full of optimism.

    There is 300 million seconds between these two boys. It was an amazing 300 million seconds, full of stories I will share here.
