When a child gets cut, as parents we bleed.
Every runner looks for two things when they run. One is pain. The other is peace. I ran on the beach today and if there was pain on that beach I couldn’t find it.
“Oh please don’t go - we’ll eat you up - we love you so!” And Max said , “No.”
What I like most as a father…what I like very most in the whole world is knowing that my children are sleeping safely in their owns beds. What I like least is trying to get them into those beds.
My kids spend all day, everyday just trying to be like an adult. And all I want to do is to be a child again.

If you’re going to try, go all the way. Otherwise, don’t even start. This could mean losing girlfriends, wives, relatives and maybe even your mind. It could mean not eating for three or four days. It could mean freezing on a park bench. It could mean jail. It could mean derision. It could mean mockery—isolation. Isolation is the gift. All the others are a test of your endurance, of how much you really want to do it. And, you’ll do it, despite rejection and the worst odds. And it will be better than anything else you can imagine. If you’re going to try, go all the way. There is no other feeling like that. You will be alone with the gods, and the nights will flame with fire. You will ride life straight to perfect laughter. It’s the only good fight there is.
Charles Bukowski, Factotum
once I accept my life as it is I am then resigned to live it…as it is.
I’d give you a sip of my wine if I didn’t think you’d tell your kindergarten teacher on me.
