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. 

You are exactly where you need to be…

Writing
Several years ago, I sat in a comfortable armchair in the living room of one of my best friends in Dallas, TX. The room was designed elegantly, with meditative music playing in the background as a colorful accent light rotated bright colors over the walls. My friend, Dave, a man.

A new day

Writing
Exactly one year ago, I sat in the lobby of a hostel in Montevideo, Uruguay. The internet speed was mediocre, at best. And the hot air sat stale without movement. I was nearing the end of a monthlong offshore with Expensify and enjoyed the solitude I found behind a desk..

More than enough

Writing
It’s been nearly a decade since I purchased a copy of Dr. Seuss’s Oh, The Places You’ll Go! I opened the (used) copy of the book to see a handwritten letter on the inside of the book cover; written from one friend, to another, who was pursuing their dreams of becoming a.

Go North, young man

Writing
As a young man, I remember reading from The Empty Hourglass, the book written by my Opa to chronicle his life. While his adventures make mine look quite tame in comparison (I've never been shot down (twice) or encountered cannibals) I've found a source of inspiration in his words and lust for.

the appointment

Writing
When I was a very young child, I remember going to the local recreation center to be vaccinated. Those times were some of the most frightening experiences I can remember as a child. It was the dread of knowing why you were there, followed by a seemingly-endless waiting period to hear your name.

Touch your toes

Writing
"Aaron, if you can touch your toes, I'll get you a pony." A ten year-old me remembers hearing the words from my father, who offered this goal in hopes that I would be to become flexible enough to touch my toes. Stiff-legged me took Dad up on the challenge and.

yokes and valleys

Writing
There's a saying in the bible about being 'yoked equally' with others. Earlier in the afternoon, I was thinking about this verse and had a few thoughts to share. A yoke is used to connect two animals in order to pull a cart. If the animals aren't similar in statue.

Life’s dance

Writing
What if we could rise up from where we are rooted, meet each other like a long lost harmony Dance as if we shared the same five senses as if our feet were planted on the same small planet Our veins running the same red blood ... We forget why.

30: What I’ve learned

Writing
1. Talk with your family Your family is your role model for your other relationships. Your family relationships can be the source of love, pain, or differences - it is entirely what you make of them. Strong relationships don't happen without regular communication. Call home. 2. Get sh*t done Your.

20’s

Writing
"Your 20's are for f*cking up and being able to write it all off as a learning lesson in your 30's" Steve gave me the above advice in one of our many brother-to-brother chats. I think about these words often, especially with my 30th birthday right around the corner. Looking.
