A few years ago, my kids and I were driving to Fond Du Lac, about a half-hour from where we lived. I happened to look to my left, and saw dozens of huge wind turbines in the distance. I turned south as soon as I was able, and fifteen minutes later, we were standing right next to one. The sound of the blades cutting the wind not far above our heads was an experience I will never forget... To this day, I still love to find wind farms, wherever I go. A farm I got close to in California had over 3,500 of them. :)
I have an insatiable passion for music, both listening and playing. I'm in a local band, and playing our songs is a release that I seldom find anywhere. The only other I can think of that's comparable is discovering something new with my kids: a new park, a song everybody likes, launching a rocket; all were amazing on their own.
I am huge believer in independent thought. In my opinion, there are far too many people that are ok with 'going with the flow'. I want to stand out, find something unique to occupy time, say or do something that makes another's day, no matter how small.
For the most part, my life is great. I have amazing kids, jobs that I love (something I've found to be a true rarity), awesome friends and family, and a band where I leave every practice with a smile on my face. I am missing one thing, though. Someone to share in the fun I have, and to be a part of theirs.
Have a question? Please ask. I don't hold back. There's far too little time for us on Earth to waste time not saying what we think, and what matters.
