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 →

Boy Scout Motto

  I looked at my hands. They were covered in blood and trembling. How many times had I been forced to cross the bridge with a gun held to my head? I had lost count. My Dad used to say, “Whatever you do, don’t let them get you into a car. Make them kill you... Continue Reading →

Advanced Chemistry

I published my first book. It is a "cozy mystery" that is very loosely based on my life.  Don't worry, old friends.  I made up most of the juicy stuff. Most of it. Not all of it! Someone had to die and I didn't have the heart to kill any of my real friends so... Continue Reading →

Crossing Muddy Waters

Have you ever wondered what makes a relationship last?  Not just romantic relationships, but friendships as well? Last night I had a great talk with one of my dearest friends. We did not grow up together. I met TR (The Rock) when I moved to Oregon to go to optometry school. I had met one... Continue Reading →

Doing the Right Thing

I couldn't sleep last night. I have to get this off my chest. I had the best weekend with my family.  Watching the Packers beat Seattle was the icing on the cake. But....  I could not  get the images from the Sunday news out of my mind. What is happening in Syria is wrong. There... Continue Reading →
