Big Year

Last night was the Winter Solstice. The shortest day of the year or the longest night of the year depending on your perspective. It’s an interesting thing from an astrological point of view as well as a philosophical one. It can get a person to thinking… One year. A lot can happen in one year.... Continue Reading →

Split Personality

I almost changed the name of my blog today. I read recently that if you are going to be a writer- you have to take yourself seriously and treat yourself like a writer. Huh? The idea being, that if you are going to take the time to write a story, you should have the balls... Continue Reading →

Flying Too Close To The Sun

I had a farm in Africa... No, not really but lately I have been receiving some cosmic mojo from Isak Dinesen’s book Out of Africa. You know, the one that was made into a fab movie starring Meryl Streep and Robert Redford. She played Karen Blixen, a gutsy Scandinavian who married a Barron to get... Continue Reading →

His places happen to be Louisville, KY and Korea. His latitude is 38.25 N. My latitude is 44N. I have spent the majority of my... Continue Reading →

Frugal Weekend Experiment

I am currently trying to save some money for an upcoming trip. This is a trip to Las Vegas and for some reason I have some guilt associated with the gambling part of it. I had no trouble shelling out the dough for the airline ticket. But now I need some cash for the super... Continue Reading →

Nothing, Absolutely Nothing.

I want to start a new trend.I want to make being a total and complete sloth a celebrated event. It should be okay and desirable to be able to report that not a single thing was accomplished on the weekend.Somewhere along the line I got brainwashed into thinking that I really should be doing something...
