about this blog
this is an experiment in thought, an exploration of fatherhood, a place of random fun where hard, cool facts and feelings of mortality can mingle and dance with the cosmos, where we can all wonder what it means to be human and, in particular, what it means to be a DAD.
about the author
For me, this journey officially began October 1, 2005 at 6:12pm. That’s when my wife Tina gave birth to our daughter, Madeleine Susan Newman. That’s also when I said, “Wow!”, and “Ewww, gross…”, and “Is that really the head?”, which I felt summed up nicely the many thoughts that raced across my mind at that moment, one of which was the grand realization that I had become, and would be known from this day forward, as: Dad.
I am currently a full-time, stay-at-home dad, and also don the following guises from time to time: graphic designer, architect, teacher, artist, writer, husband, friend, son, brother, magician, joker, fat head, and wise guy.
