My dad passed this morning at 4:40 AM. I was at his side. He was at peace and in no pain thanks to the angels at the hospice unit. We received his terminal diagnosis on the 21st of December and all family members, along with my dad, chose no treatment and weeks of life as […]

If you read my Best and Worst cities to run in post on Wednesday you probably figured out I was in Washington DC. It was a very mixed experience on my part. In one sense it had a ” London” feel to it with all the old buildings and history but something just didn’t feel […]

Today ended what has been a unique experience. I’ve been on a long term project in NJ flying back and forth from Colorado every 1 to 2 weeks. Over the course of this project I had the fortune to meet and get to know Mustafa. No, he was not one of my coworkers on the […]

NYC, and other stories

I must have, deep down in me, a lost soul from New York City. Namely, Manhattan! (Yes, that’s a fragment but I don’t care!). Back in December I talked about the wanderlust I discovered when I was a teen. It seems I can be at ease wherever I am. But for some reason I had […]
