I first launched “TimHicks.com” in 1998. Over the years, this site has served a variety of functions. Most often, it has been an online business card for various interests I’ve had over the years. If ever there was a site which suffered from an identity crisis, it was this one.
That all changed in the closing moments of 2015, when the purpose of this site became crystal clear. I would use this site as an online journal of my new journey as a middle-aged widower. You see, my beloved wife, Cindy, passed away unexpectedly on August 1, 2015. We had been married for a little over 28 years. My heart was broken… and still is.
I thought about launching a blog to chronicle my journey soon after her passing, but it was way too soon. With the dawning of a brand new year, I felt that maybe the time was right.
This site is mainly an outlet for me to jot down my feelings and the things I’m doing to get by. I think of it as inexpensive therapy. In doing this, I’m hoping to help myself and possibly others who are walking down the same road.
There will likely be some posts about business and other interests I have, such as autograph collecting. In my mind, all of these things are a part of my new journey.
Please let me know what you think of the site and let me know if you have any questions.
Thank you for visiting.
