Older.

It’s so fleeting life like leaves whisper across stones.

Sun gives life Fall leaves Summer. Sun takes life, leaves left drying, brittle and cold.

So fleeting too, days with you, left living all alone. Where leaves were scattered, now only stones.

Where once we lived, you are a memory I used to hold. I’m feeling older now. We told each other we’d live forever.

We’d grow old together, never bitter and cold. But you’re not coming home this time. “Forever” seems so long ago. We’re not out of time but there’s a lot less, I know.

We’ll never know each other, now, a lifetime ago. A reflection in a window… a man I used to know…

He looks so young but I’m looking older now.

People are made of many things, but only a few things define a person. For me, those things are Philosophy, Leadership, and Health. I help independently owned and ethically run businesses break through communication obstacles and challenge conventional thinking. Sometimes that means delivering insightful marketing content; sometimes it means having tough but compassionate conversations. All the time, it means communicating and building relationships with honesty and integrity. I am a vegan, an individualist, and occasionally a man willing to risk everything to reach a goal. I am known for being uncompromising in my values, and for being someone who dares to own his own life.
