I'm Alive

Hi All,

I'm still alive. Since my last post, I rolled right into NaNoWriMo, had family issues in December and have dealt with the notice of my radio station being silenced as the network it was on closed down. I have spent the past few months trying to get things feeling normal again - for me.

I have put aside reading books for now and have moved to working on various crafts. I have been doing small pieces of writing here and there but nothing substantial. I might crank out a 10,000 word story or do scenes it's nothing that is being used for a bigger story at the moment plus my mind has been on the NHL playoffs.

Admittedly, my team, the Chicago Blackhawks were eliminated in the first round so I'm bummed but not too much.  I think because I have been a Cubs fan since I was 12 that the "there's always next year" mentality fits here. There is always next year to try and win a Stanley Cup. (Dear Hockey Gods, Please don't let them trade Andrew Shaw!)  My Cubbies are doing well right now but I'm not paying a lot of attention to them at the moment.  I won't really start paying attention to them until July because once the All-Star Game hits it's a totally different season of baseball through October.

I apologize for the lack of updates on the site and it as much as I would like to update my website I'm having issues with the editor.  I will tell you that I recently finished reading Patrick O'Sullivan's book Breaking Away. It was hard to read in some places, I cried, I screamed and I got angry. I would recommend people give it a read. You don't have to be a hockey fan to read it.

All right, that's my update folks. I hope to have my website updated soon. I leave you with Jonathan Toews, Captain of the Chicago Blackhawks telling a funny story.

Rock on,
