Last week was a bittersweet one for me. I went on very quick road trip with Richie to handle some business in Texas, where I was born. Although we were there on business, we took some time to try and visit some places from my childhood in Dallas, and some touristy things for Richie. It was bittersweet because on our way we stopped in a little town named Sulphur Springs, population 15,000, and every bit of the stereotypical Texas that people commonly see the state as. Although I know both sides of Texas; the major metropolitan city of Dallas that is progressive, and then the very ‘red’ rural side.

When people reach, or near, a certain age, they sometimes do lots of things to try and combat it, although inevitable. Most people see these things as phases, or personality faults. Lately I have been trying a host of things, from being vegetarian, to taking up fencing, to working out, to trying to get on the track to additional education (outside my profession) for the mental fear of losing out.
