“One More Light”

The loss of Chester Bennington has not been unnoticed in our home this past week.  Kal-El has listened to Linkin Park since their mainstream debut in 2001 with their album Hybrid Theory and has been allowing their albums to play into the soundtrack of his life ever since.  It’s needless to say that he was […]

Mile One

I hate to admit this but I am a HUGE quitter.  I lack patience and discipline in all the ways that I need it most.  I start off strong and then I burn out with as much vigor.  In the same sense I get excited about things easily and fiercely and then a few mornings […]
