A Delightful Life

Delightful day; what more can I say; I ran, I hiked, I swam, I read, I cooked, I napped – I did everything but make love, which, in itself, is another kind of delightful day, just not the one written for today. But I conspire with fate for days like that too. I’m working onContinue reading “A Delightful Life”

March 9-10, 2015: Deepened and Family

There are days when you know you have changed, days when you notice a marked difference in the feeling of your disposition, days when you know there has been a significant shift in your outlook. Tonight I stand on the dock I grew up on, knowing there is no going back to yesterday. There isContinue reading “March 9-10, 2015: Deepened and Family”

6 Feb, 2015: Piñatas

Long afternoon shadows. Watching kids strike a small, child-shaped piñata in the park. The scene eerily not unlike someone lynched, beaten. The act senseless were it not for the candy splayed out onto the grass, soon to be in the clutches of tiny, selfish hands. We do things like purchase piñatas for children to beatContinue reading “6 Feb, 2015: Piñatas”

And This is What Love is

Money Does Not Equal Happiness

Three years and exactly 99 posts ago I went to wordpress.com and started this blog. I’ve been waiting for something worthy enough for my 100th post. Today the impetus for my centennial post arrived. I was reading about how Crispin Glover of Back to The Future Stardom recently came out and stated that he didn’tContinue reading “Money Does Not Equal Happiness”

Waking Up to The Matrix

Let me tell you why you’re here. You’re here because you know something. What you know you can’t explain, but you feel it. You’ve felt it your entire life, that there’s something wrong with the world. You don’t know what it is, but it’s there, like a splinter in your mind, driving you mad. –Continue reading “Waking Up to The Matrix”
