"When machines and computers, profit motives and property rights, are considered more important than people, the giant triplets of racism, extreme materialism and militarism are incapable of being conquered." -- Martin Luther King, Jr.

Happy Birthday to this girl. 18 TODAY! I'm at a loss for describing how proud I am of Sophie, how inspired I am by Sophie, how much I admire Sophie, and how much I love Sophie. Watching her grow into an adult has been one of the greatest experiences of my life. I can't wait to see what she does next. I know she's going to hate that I posted this pic, but I can't help it. It's one of my favorites. The night Sophie was born, Bryan Adams was on the radio. The song was "(Everything I Do) I Do it for You", which may be a cheesy power ballad, but it holds a dear place in my heart. I'll be listening to it today, thinking of my baby girl, marveling at how far she's come, and the places she'll go. Happy Birthday, Sophie!!

This is the centerfold of the Journey "Frontiers" tour program. This image is identical to a poster we had hanging on the basement wall in the old North Olmsted house. I spent many nights with Journey playing on the stereo and staring at that poster.
Tonight I was given this Journey tour program from their 1983 "Frontiers" tour. I went to this concert with my friend, Matt B., who passed away nearly 12 years ago. We went to the show with his mom and sat behind the stage. That was fine by me because I got a better view of Steve Smith playing drums. Bryan Adams was an up and comer and the opening act. Matt's brother gave this to me. I will treasure it.
