I am Chris Paris, a 41 year old father and husband. I straddle 2 worlds, the farm and IT. I get up early in the morning, anywhere from 4:00 am to 5:30 am (when running late) and feed and care for Horses, cows, dogs and cats on our little farm. Then I get showered and take my daughter to school. After that I work in the IT industry doing anything from web page design, to database design, to programming whatever language is needed. When I am done with work, it is back to the critters on the farm, eat dinner, and go to bed. Rinse and repeat 6 times and that is my week. I get Saturdays off.
It is a busy and sometimes hard life, but it is good. I am learning a lot about myself and I think, about life as well. Along the way, I often find that things that had been dogma for me are challenged, things assumed are turned on their head. It is these times, when I say “huh”, that I know there is something worth noting for myself, a little place marker to come back to and examine in more detail later.
That is the purpose of this site, to make those little notes and perhaps explore them a bit deeper. I hope that something on here will be a help to someone else. I have seen many blogs that contained gems for me and now I want to give back.
