Starting from the "BIG"-inning

Hello everyone and welcome to my blog. First and foremost, I want to say that I have no idea why I chose the name "Thoughts on a Masterpiece". Maybe it's some unconscious and random way that I see the world. I hope that this blog will help me to sort through the conundrum that is my life and allow someone to make sense of it all.

I guess I consider myself to be a deep and thoughtful person-whatever the hell that means. I guess the only thing that really means is that I talk to myself when I'm alone. I think a lot. Not always on things in sequence, but just randomly. I guess that's why I'm intriuged by endurance sports. They allow me time alone to think. We're confronted on a daily basis with so much STUFF that we have no time to appreciate the simplicity of life. Simply put, we're born, we live, and we die. Hopefully we can make some sort of impact on the people around us in the time we're here...whether it's a good or bad impact really doesn't matter, as long as we make it. Thank God that for the time being, most of us choose to make a positive impact on those around us. I have to say that I'm honestly afraid for the future.

Ok, so with all that said, I'm happy to be here. I'm an endurance sports junkie and competitor with the hobby of going to my day job every day. I hope that if you choose to give my blog a read you enjoy the minutes I've taken from your life and hopefully gained something from it. This will be my positive contribution.

Very funny stuff, much depth and sensitivity to the macho-man, as well. RE the bi-polar loved one; allow me to say these few words: every family has something along these lines, it's their issue, not yours, and, continue to be the patient ,understanding, " giver". It is better to be the one giving, than to be the one in need.
> LOVE the superman/disappointed and mom was pissed. RE the " beautiful body man".... all I can say is, try the enlarged view of your blog pic, looks like u mugged a 10 year old and stole his bike..
lastly, you continue to sound very much in love with Kristen; pop the Q and start your real life dude, kids are the best and being one is only supposed to be practice for raising them.

cool blog.

your manic depressive 5am

get some rest
