  1. Get off the stage

    My wife (then GF) and I were walking in golden gate park. We were young, dating and holding hands. We saw an older couple sitting on a park bench. They were close to each other and holding hands. I caught eye contact with the man who must have been fifty years my senior. He smiled at me like he knew, I was in love.

    I just realized I did not blog up the last day of our Christmas break camping trip.
