Writing forces me to examine my views as cold words on a page.
My views are borne out of my experiences on this world.
My experiences are slowly adding to the short story that is my life.
While I still can, I choose to share some for anyone who might find them useful, or perhaps just entertaining.

I just had a taste of what it’s like to read my posts with a slow internet . . . my suggestion is to get a cup of coffee while the post loads; you’ll need it anyway when reading it, … Continue reading
Originally I was planning a single post for my 2014 retrospective, but . . . 503 posts for the year (as of this writing – there will be more before the year ends). Instead, I will do four retrospective posts, one … Continue reading
About to write this, and THIS song comes on. Many a days, on the long drive home, I would put this on, roll down my windows, and take the road home, down Ute Pass. Anyway, this post is about the various … Continue reading
As I mentioned in previous posts, I should get back to both finishing the novel and documenting the cruise . . . and I will. Meanwhile, something recent. Warning; I’ve missed my long posts . . . Honest, I have … Continue reading
. . . and I’m not sure why. Do they think I won’t have more posts in the next few days? . . . am I supposed to stop posting until 2015? Anyway, here it is . . . not … Continue reading
Nights at sea with the full moon are interesting. I would have loved to capture one on a photo, but night is also when the boat is really moving (occasionally approaching 25mph). It may not sound like much, but the sea does … Continue reading
We had a day at sea after leaving Princess Cays, and while there are many activities on the boat, I was distracted from both activities and eating by a Masked Booby. The bird was tracking the ship, flying a zigzagging … Continue reading
I am not prepared . . . but I’ll give it a shot. We used to put up a lot of Christmas decorations, all over the inside and the outside of the house. This next photo is from our first … Continue reading
I wrote on December 5th about our first and last port of call. Not actually a port . . . Princess Cays is a resort on the island of Eleuthera, and it may be interesting for some reading of its history … Continue reading
The original version of this post, on December 4th, included only photos from the phone, and small ones, at that. I won’t repeat all the photos, but I will do a mix of both phone photos and Nikon D7000 photos. I should … Continue reading
The combined damage of my injury and cruise is around 9 pounds and a couple of inches. That’s 9 pounds and two inches gained between November 5th and December 20th. The breakdown is about 4 lbs and 1 inch due to … Continue reading
So, apparently taking selfies is all the rage now. Let it not be said I am an old fogie all behind the times and stuff. This is me as we sailed away from Barbados. The neon lights along the railing … Continue reading
We are waiting to get off the Royal Princess and begin our long way home (via Chicago) . . . 13 hours from now we will be home (I hope). Yesterday we enjoyed a relaxing day capped by a nice … Continue reading
People reading Part I of the St. Kitts post might have realized I erroneously referred to St. Lucia when describing St. Kitts. That should be corrected now, so those early readers should treasure the memory of me confusing the wo … Continue reading
