This blog finds me at a perfectly arbitrary place in life–in my early 50s, gainfully employed (school counselor), a married guy (Ann), father to a 15 year old girl (Maisy), stepfather to a 16 year old one (Claire), living in northern California, and it’s as simple as that.  Which is hardly to say this life transpires in an unexamined fashion. So please, do read all about it.
