About Tom Raleigh

I am called Thomas-also TJ, Tommy, Tom, Dad and Pops-and it appears I may be many things to many people. I’m in my early 60s now and clearly the product of an insecure mind. Believe me when I say that this mid-life crisis thing is not a myth. It consumes me. It’s all about what you think you missed in your earlier years. It then becomes a race against time, seeking what you mistakenly believe is a safe haven from those scary thoughts of the inevitable. Not such a good thing, but apparently I’m busy at it. I have had the good fortune to peek under life’s tent, and I have learned one thing as I move through my sixth decade: if you choose to embrace those very good things life has to offer, you can live it and avoid having to chase it.
