The DIY Generation

I grew up before the advent of the world wide web or the internet. My first experience was as a young married adult using the dial-up method. It wasn’t great then. Things have progressed so much as far as what we can do nowadays. This has given rise to the DIY generation. The generation that […]

Thoughts on life’s temporary nature

Death of friends often makes us think on life’s temporary nature.

Random Thoughts About Children and Life

What happens to our kids when they grow up? We wish for them to be those we use to hold by the hand when walking, those that sat on our laps to hear a story, the ones we tucked in bed and saw each morning. But nothing that is will remain the same. Time passes. […]
