Another possible answer for that goddamn question,

“So what do you write?”, might be ‘Life, just life.’ I mean why not.  It is what I write most about– dad life, writer life, adjunct professor life, wine industry life, runner and fitness life.  I mean, it’s just.. life.  And that’s it.  And that’s what I’ll say the next time someone asks me, and rather than get jumbled in how I want to answer, I’ll keep my answer simple.  It is simple.  I’m a life-writer, for life, imbibing in life and everything it has to teach us.  Not stopping and I can’t stop.. this roaring hour, or just a couple minutes more, before the day closes.
