Hey Jude

Hey Everyone,

I wanted to write any followers of this infrequently updated blog to let you all know that I am doing very well. I have been going like gangbusters since last summer and am learning the valuable lessons of taking too many things on at the same time!

If you haven't heard the news, my wife and I had a baby boy in December of 2010! Jude arrived under a lunar eclipse on the night of the winter solstice. When Bex woke me up in the middle of what would be our last night as 2 I went and took a look at the moon which had turned a fire red from the sun's rays. Magnificent!

We had attended my brother's university graduation a few nights before and he described the winter solstice as a great rebirth. The winter solstice is the shortest day of the year, each day after it gets a little longer and a little brighter. Nature can be inspiring if you choose to pay attention.

Jude arrived 13 hours later after a monumental effort from my wife. We chose the name because every time we look at him it is like looking at an answered prayer.

The two-year anniversary of my cancer passed almost unnoticed this year. All is truly well.
