About Ping


After a much needed, albeit abrupt, self-imposed exile, I hope I can still offer some words to emote, be they smiles or tears, or something else.

Keep Counting...

Today, while walking my kids to school, I overheard my nine-year-old son ponder aloud to his younger sister, "I wonder if there are any swear words for butt." Never one to ignore a teachable moment, I interjected that he indeed knew at least one. I then told him. Why? Because that's my job. We've been through this before. His expression was priceless! He was in genuine shock. For some...

And So It Begins...

Good Afternoon, Unfine Sir, This morning, there was an incident where a group of grade one girls were swearing on the hill during recess. Your daughter was involved. She admitted to saying the f*** and sh** words at recess with her friends, but said she did not know what the words meant. After a few more questions, she admitted she knew that they were swearing words. I talked with all...

Grave Language

I recognized that look. That distinctively mischievous grin of a Cheshire Cat. That smirk of having swallowed Granny’s Tweety Bird. That poorly hidden giggle of having released, in the back seat, a silent killer with hopes that blame would befall his sister. The boy was bursting at the seams. He wanted to tell me, but was unsure he should. However, he had to tell someone, and the other...

Simple Question, Another Poor Decision Dad Answer

“What’s wrong with her eye?” my daughter asked after noticing the receptionist’s eye patch. Temporarily ignoring her, I continued socializing with the ladies, focusing on the one informing us about her planned travels to Romania and a few neighboring European countries over the summer. “Romania?” The short girl beside me interrupted again. “Like Transylvania, Romania?” “Yes,” I politely,...

Lessons Taught, Lessons Learned

As a father, a dad, a guy trying to be a guy’s guy, I am charged with teaching my son the ways of the world, as seen through my eyes, as guys have taught their masculine flesh and blood for millennia. One invaluable taught lesson is being able to write one’s name in the snow, no hands preferably, but improbably, but highly impressive to future bros, especially after a bender. However, at...

Burden Of Love's Death

There's no reason nor any rhyme, How raptured my heart was with you. Impassioned kisses stopped all time, Even after our love withdrew. Your lies! My lies! Were everywhere! Of truth from many words did seep. My lies! Your lies! Cannot compare! For not a shred of truth did keep. Cursed memories thought divine, Timeless claims no longer remain. Haunted each day by loss of mine, And...

Our love This connection Is a free fall Something We both want And need But Is it worth The risk Maybe Our chutes Have Already deployed The decision Has been made And We are floating Back down To earth Safely And no harm Will come to us Maybe But we wonder Will we land In an open field This once Escaping injury Deciding Never to Go up To soar again But we know Life Has No guarantees So Do...

My daughter recently told me that some days, her classroom is too quiet. So quiet in fact, that she cannot even think. I told her I understood, saying some people need a little background noise to help them concentrate. However, I said, her father needs absolute silence when reading or writing. Without missing a beat, she replied, “Well, when I’m reading or writing, I need words.” LMFAO   ...

Finding Love Again...

Our hearts feel your pain, yours is filled with regret Their corrosive words, tried their best to beset. Duplicitous ways, easily got you down More effort’s needed, for a smile than frown. Don’t give up my friend, don’t let yourself cower Too many turn sweet, into undeserved sour. You will love again, so be patient and wait It comes by surprise, so leave open your gate. Your words now...

Are You Sorry?

Saying sorry is not a sign of weakness It comes from a place of strength One of better understanding More of us need to go to that length. Some hide behind their repeated past And attempt to re-write history Others claim they are innocent The accusations are a mystery. Then some are clearly oblivious They don’t get the anger at all Becoming frustrated and very confused When their...
