    Life As A Toaster

    Ever feel like your role in your marriage is like that of an appliance? Let me elaborate... I'll use a toaster as an example. When we want to make toast, we go to our toaster, drop in some bread, push down the handle, wait a bit, and out comes the toast! Simple. Reliable. When we...

    From time to time she checks in on my mother

    and I appreciate this very much. Last week I just missed her by 10 minutes or so. She had brought over lunch and they visited before she had to run off to work. Our romance began and ended so long ago. Since then we've both been married, had kids and moved on. My mom relays the...

    Oh I love the idea of romance.

    Definition of a 'Romantic'

    Chatting with an EP friend recently, I was asked to define what it meant to me to be a "romantic". This is all very subjective, but here's my take on it... A romantic does everything within his or her power to make you feel loved. Stereotypical examples might be buying gifts...

    I am nothing special, of this I am sure. I am a common man with common thoughts and I've led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten, but I've loved another with all my heart and soul, and to me, this has always been enough..
