Sadly, Tina Turner was a little bit right… I think we have miscues about love. Normally I write about things that amuse me but today for some reason I was amused by something I’ve heard over the years a dozen times. “I don’t know if I love her anymore” “I don’t know if I love him anymore” It’s such a dangerous thing to say because … Continue reading What’s Love got to do with it
I wish hindsight was 2020, but even that is pretty rare. In thinking of my life I started to wonder why I’m always watching my back trail to figure out why I thought the way I did last year or did the things I did.

I was walking through the spaces with one of the owners who said “I’m an engineer who’s now running a daycare”. … Continue reading Hello Footprints and Magic Mountain
I was nostalgic walking through the space where we’ve been for the first three years of our journey as Venue Church last Sunday. I recounted how difficult it was to do a startup of any sort in a time of economic downturn, and how fortunate we are that we not only built a great community of people moving together for the good of our city, … Continue reading Farewell Bert Church Theatre
Now you might be a man who’s on the ball and thoughtful and doesn’t mess up Christmas present buying like the rest of us. Firstly we’re proud of you. Secondly we hate you a little for making the rest of us look bad. I normally start thinking about buying Christmas presents about a week out. I have no idea why. Every year I watch my … Continue reading How Men Shop at Christmas
