Hello, I'm not dead - just being rather reclusive whilst I focus on the happiness of others. I've been spending a lot of time being a husband and a father these past few months, making up for the time my wife and son sacrificed for me the past 3 years in allowing me to trail run so much. It's been very rewarding, I must say. Each day before I come home from work I think to myself, "What does (insert family, friend, or other person/creature) need?", and try to do something for someone else each day. Sometimes that's doing simple things like picking up groceries, cleaning up around the house, making a family member's favorite dish, calling a friend, feeding the birds, walking the dog, etc. That's all it takes to make someone's day and put a smile on their face. There's nothing quite like seeing the happiness giving and doing things for others brings.
On a not so serious note, here's a funny tidbit passed on to me. Note the last entry......... ;-)
