On Twitter, I bring pain, heartache, and searing commentary about the state of decay of our world economic and political order!
BUT … on Insta it is nothing but love, family and friendship. Follow me on Insta for all of this and more!
My son MARS and his new moustache!

Dreamy! In my VSCO editor, not Instagram editor, I put a lightened fade on the image to signify MARS and I's current state at the time, fading into a butterfly fantasy.
MARS is great! Shortly after MARS was born, I spent nights on the couch holding him while he slept. As most infants need, I held him during his sleep, while his mom slept in between feedings.
MARS and I watched some of the best movies we could find! We watched the entire Stars Wars collection, since we were on a Star Wars kick, we also watched the entire first season of 'The Mandalorian,' and some other great sci-fi and fantasy films.
MARS decided to grow a moustache for the photo, and that was fine with me, but I would have preferred that he waited until puberty. In any case, it was a great 'shoot,' the photographer really got us to dig deep, bring a little bit more of our true personalities into the photo, and a Butterfly even landed on my shoulder. It was big and yellow, not a Monarch, which are my favorite types of Butterflies, but at least it wasn't a fly.
When MARS wanted to introduce a 'propellered beanie' into the photograph, I thought that I might as well indulge his sensibilities, being a baby and all. I'll probably shave his 'stache in a few days, but he can keep the 'beanie,' as long as he studies personal aviation, a favorite hobby of mine, also.
