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.

The previous Juneau 2017 post is HERE.<<link That post has color photos and rather than mix color and monochrome photos, I decided to duplicate the post with the monochrome versions of the photos. Think of it as a nod to … Continue reading
I’m writing this on the 28th of July, 2020 . . . my last post about our 2017 Alaska Cruise was exactly one year ago (HERE<<link) and covered the last of the Haines photos. Had I been aware of it, … Continue reading
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
So, not a big fan of cities. We’ve been to Boston a few times and generally avoid spending time in the city. Now, I know people’s inner indignant-Boston-fans are struggling to get out of their lazy chairs and ready to battle … 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.
Some might have seen a few posts about desserts we had aboard the Coral Princess on our last two cruises. I’d link the previous posts but working with this app is not for someone with my temperament. Anyway, this current … Continue reading
We’re on a NECA Cruise (New England and Canada Cruise). We flew into La Guardia on Friday and rented a room that happened to be under one of the airport’s flight path. We didn’t sleep late because the room’s windows … Continue reading
Note: this is a long post. I mean it; long, long, long post. If you just want the photos, go to the bottom and check out the gallery sans the witty, incisive, profound, and irreverent banter. This is the third … Continue reading

Edited to add: this appears to be an early draft of THIS post which posted on January 13, 2019. I have no idea why it came up as a post today. Still, it published so I’m leaving it here. The … Continue reading

Despite our best efforts, walking, and hitting the gym, I still managed to put on some pounds. We don’t have a scale, but I estimate three pounds . . . four, tops. It will take longer to lose it than … Continue reading
I was going to continue with the progression of cruise days but decided to jump ahead to the main reason for doing this particular cruise. It’s not visiting all these places or exploring different cultures or even claiming any particular … Continue reading
