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.

It’s been a while and truth be told, this can’t be a continuation of my Quick NECA Cruise Update posts because it lacks the immediacy of the experience. Meaning, it’s a few months later and I’m a long way away … Continue reading
I’m writing this from the LaGuardia Delta Gate 29 (Terminal C) . . . our scheduled 1:10 pm flight has now been pushed back to 3:10 pm. Most annoying and an unwelcomed development given that we were scheduled to (by now) have pick … Continue reading
We had visited Newport a few years ago when I attended the Viable Paradise writing workshop. Again, I ain’t even gonna try linking the related posts.
A quick post as I prepare for sleep.
I take a lot of photos with my Samsung Note 8 but despite my best intentions, I’m way behind in sharing them. This post attempts to make up for some of that . . . except you won’t see the … Continue reading
It’s been a while since I’ve done a breakfast (or other alimentary) post. There are three breakfasts I eat fairly regularly: Cheerios with walnuts and almonds and fruit (when available), oatmeal with cream cheese and two eggs, and scrambled eggs … Continue reading
Sometimes life has one sit and wait for stuff to happen. Like, for instance, a few times this week. Well, then, one takes out their Note 8 — if one has a Note 8 — and snaps a few photos. … Continue reading
On a recent update, Samsung added the capability for Super-slow Motion to the Note 8. Mind you, it’s very limited. By limited, I mean that you can only shoot a few seconds of video and end up with about 6 … Continue reading
. . . specifically, this field. That’s an unedited photo from the Nikon P900 of a field in the Crab Orchard Lake Wildlife Refuge. It was an overcast day with intermittent rain (it wasn’t raining when I snapped this). I … Continue reading
postI mentioned in the last post this familiar visage might be Apollo or David . . . . . . but I figure I could play with the image and try to coax other figures from it. So, I … Continue reading
I mentioned the Doves doing what Doves do . . . and they done did it under my nose. Well, not literally but I was too slow in denying them a nesting spot in my gutters. By the way, them … Continue reading
One of the advantages of traveling is . . . you don’t follow the news as much. The consequence is that I miss out on a whole lot of indignation and consternation. I mean, sure, I get the peripheral noise … Continue reading
Our exercise routine used to be thus: 1.5 hours at the gym on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. Sometimes we’d get in additional walking. The 1.5 hours were split between free weights, aerobics (rowing for me), and weight machines. … Continue reading
So, the other morning one of my painful calf cramps woke me up. When I experience a cramp, I now react with vigor to try and get rid of it before it morphs into a repeat of what happened four … Continue reading
I took another photo . . . . . . and fired up Mirror Lab . . .
