Dave Rullo Presents: Aging Hip Replacement #53

I’ve been trying to decide what to write about this week. Sometimes the columns just jump out at me and other times, well it requires a little work. Jack started second grade this week and for a little while that seemed like it was going to be the topic of choice but it didn’t stick which made me think it probably wasn’t a great topic. Then of course I thought about the fact that I’m going to be forty in […]

Dave Rullo Presents: Aging Hip Replacement #50 (That’s a milestone isn’t it!)

I’ve been thinking a lot about mortality for a number of reasons. I don’t like thinking about mortality, I don’t like thinking, knowing really, that at some point I’m going to die. It’s all part of a bigger picture that may or may not become clear by the time I’m finished typing this we’ll have to see where we end up. You may have noticed that I’ve been absent for the last several weeks. To be frank, I’ve been a […]

Dave Rullo Presents: Aging Hip Replacement #48

Here’s something I’ve been thinking a lot about lately—as I get older my responsibility to be a good person grows. That thought hasn’t been a quick one for me to reach. I spent the better part of my twenties and thirties consumed with thoughts of me. As I got into my late thirties my thoughts were primarily about my family and me. As I’m reaching that grand age of 40 though I’ve begun to reexamine a lot the ways I’ve […]

Dave Rullo Presents: Aging Hip Replacement #47

One of the neat things about writing this column is that after you’ve been doing it for an extended period of time you begin to see your life from above. What do I mean by that? Each week you’re thinking about what’s going to be the subject of the next week’s column, as a result you start to see the significance in certain moments. You start to recognize when those moments are memorable and which are going to be the […]

Dave Rullo Presents: Aging Hip Replacement #46

I’m extremely bad at living life. I mean it, I’m bad at it. Here’s the lucky part for me though, most of my friends and family are pretty bad at living life as well. Oh sure, I know people who managed to become doctors, lawyers, engineers, candlestick makers, etc in a socially acceptable amount of time and by the time they were 28 were married, own a home, had kids, etc. Those people though are definitely the exception in my […]
