A LOOK
INSIDE MY HEAD

When I was only ten, I learned how to type on a manual typewriter. A-S-D-F...J-K-L-;...since then, I’ve written over 2,000 blogs and enjoy sharing my words with others. 

As a writer, you see the world around you as a story waiting to be told. Every experience acts as an actor for this beautiful story we’re fortunate enough to call “life.” I hope you appreciate my writing as much as I’ve had, living the story. 

Starry Night

Writing
This afternoon, I had the opportunity to go grocery shopping with my older sister, Lydia. Strolling through the aisles of Aldi and in utter astonishment at the low prices (You're not in SF anymore, Dorothy) we shared a great conversation and were able to share some of the things going on in.

The Master’s Touch

Writing
Several years ago, I was saddened to hear news of the passing (link) of a man who taught me a great deal about life; Mr. Anderson, co-owner of "The Masters Touch" hair salon in Columbus, OH. Ed's chair wasn't just his occupation - it was his ministry. I remember all of.

Chrysalis

Uncategorized / Writing
One of the most beautiful transformations to occur in nature is the morphing of the caterpillar into a butterfly. The transformative process is known as "chrysalis". During the chrysalis process, something incredible happens inside of the cocoon; the entire body of the caterpillar transforms into liquid before reassembling itself as an emerging.

Brushstrokes

Uncategorized
In a diversion from my usual ramblings, this blog is intended to give a small snapshot into the mind of a creator. My entire life, I've loved creating things purely for the love of seeing something emerge from the nothingness. Artists, creators, etc. have all been blessed with a gift - and.

The forgotten sermon

Writing
It seems like the world is going crazy these days. Truth has been replaced with alternative facts, children manufacture $350 basketball shoes, and a cup of coffee goes for fourbucks these days. America has children in cages at its borders, and drops thousands of bombs on other countries every single.

Hero

Writing
"Aaron, always use the right tool for the job." Wisdom from my Dad, harshly given after I broke one of his tools - using it for some other purpose than it was designed for. Unfortunately, it wasn't the only time he gave me this bit of advice, nor the last.

Reflections from Ohio

Writing
It's been nearly a decade since I packed my life into the trunk of my BMW and set course for the west coast. California, baby. It called me. I answered. We danced. Boy, did we dance... Eight years, four states, and fourteen countries later, I returned home to Columbus, OH..

Dental Floss and Diamonds

Writing
There's a saying that 'diamonds are forever' originally propagated by a James Bond film. My own variation of this phrase says "pressure makes the diamond" to indicate the type of force, trauma, and time required to make a stone that will last a lifetime. Will you marry me? On a.

Yet

Writing
There's a saying in the bible, which goes: "where your treasure is, there will your heart be also." Growing up the church, I was used to hearing this verse. However, I never really understood the meaning behind it - until recently. I have to open this blog by remarking on.
