My name is Kirby Workes, hence the title of my blog, Workesforme.

I am a small town boy from the Midwest, although being in my late thirties doesn’t necessarily categorize me as a boy anymore, but I like to think that way.  I grew up pretty typical, in regard to how it is in the Midwest.  High school, work, marriage, family, and hopefully someday retire. At some point along the way, I think about age thirty-two, I decided to put everything in disarray, and go to college.

I ended up graduating with a Business Management degree, which at the time for me was the most practical, but soon learned I was actually good at and enjoyed all the other non-business classes I took.  Funny how that works out isn’t it?  I truly loved my writing, philosophy, and literature classes.  I was able to gain such a different insight that I never knew existed.

So, while I work and raise my children, I write in my spare time.  I have a strong passion for it, and it helps me learn so much more about life, and has opened up my life to people out there who are just like me.

This blog is just about the things I think about, and wonder about.  Some topics I am sure are a little off the wall, just as I can be, but they are what help me to understand things.  I can definitely have some crazy ideas, but that is how I learn, and that is how I have turned my relatively typical Midwestern life into something so much more and so much more enjoyable.

Not sure what you think. . . but it Workes for me.  (get it?)

    Hi Kirby. I also enrolled in college at an age where most men seem to be established. I was 34 yrs. old when I started on this venture. Like you, I write about what inspires me, hence the title of my blog, “My Take On It.” From what I have read thus far, It’s pleasure following you. Blessings.

      It is amazing how you think things are going the way they need to, and then all at once you find something, or things happen that totally changes your life’s perspective. I appreciate you following me, and look forward to reading your posts as well.

    Stumbled on your blog and just wanted to say I am so sorry for your loss. I lost my brother to suicide and it was awful. Something I still deal with today in my late 30’s even though I was 17 when it happened. You never truly get over it, but maybe that’s the point. I feel like loss has made me much more compassionate towards others. That is the only good I can see from any of it because I still miss him everyday. Nice to “meet” you in this world. Also from the Midwest — Minnesota — but I tend to think of where I live much more north!
