Showing Selfie Control

The simple name of the “Selfie” sounds a little too self-gratifying, but for most it’s simply a documentation process. When I say most I’m probably referring to those under thirty. Before we get into depth with this research piece, let’s first understand and define the “Selfie” (before my father stops reading out of disgust). Dad, […]

A Tale of Two Sons

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of ….. 5. My son Hoyt is my little buddy. Not the kind of buddy like when parents are friends with their children (there’s time enough for that when he’s 18 onward). Right […]
