I haven’t taken much time off from writing. And I’ve been publishing daily, Monday through Friday for almost two years. I love the Mission City and writing about her. And it shows people in journalism what I can do.
More importantly I’m a father to an amazing 3-year-old daughter, which has always taken precedent over all. Recently, I’ve been working two full-time jobs at major hi-tech companies, each in totally different roles, to help provide for her future. I also manage swim lessons (for her and I), gymnastics lessons and other fatherly duties, like bringing her to a pre-school that I work at occasionally.
In addition to the work, I’ve also been managing Wrestling For Charity, which hosted three amazingly successful events last week in San Francisco, Santa Clara and Menlo Park at the Facebook campus for Facebook Festivals‘ Fiesta event. These events featured wrestling stars from as far as Mexico and the U.K.
I’ve also had a medical need arise that dates back over 14 years. I have a consult next week to determine the course of action. Many of you know, I nearly lost my arm in a racing incident at Ocean Speedway in Watsonville.
I thank the readers and supporters of Santa Clara News Online and plan to continue daily posts tomorrow.
Sometimes, life gets in the way of writing and we need a little time to recharge.
