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 recently posted this doodle . . . . . . and quipped it might hold the key to what we — as humans — should be doing. Quote: ” . . . that almost looks like it should means … Continue reading
Since January, I’ve averaged exactly twelve (12) posts per month. That is a huge drop from years past. In 2015, for instance, my average was more than one post a day and that’s when I was working. It’s not just … Continue reading
I never know how to introduce these posts. One could well argue that the point of these posts, the purpose for their existence, is to show off a few photos. On the other hand, given their quality, one could rightly assume … Continue reading
Lots of stuff . . . that’s that I muse about. Or, is it “muse on?” See? I muse about/on that too. Along with my musing, I present a few B&W photos. Except, they are not B&W. They are shades of … Continue reading
Five years . . . I’ve written before (HERE and HERE) about how much I miss and mourn the loss of Christopher Hitchens. I miss the clarity of thought, I miss the quick wit, I miss the brutal honesty There … Continue reading
. . . not. A thing that bothers me – and I mean, really bothers me – is the propensity of people to assign meaning or intent to everyday events. Some will do it explicitly (“thank you, god, for this or … Continue reading
Today marks the fourth anniversary of the death of one of my few heroes. Christopher Hitchens. At the time, I wrote, perhaps with a bit more emotion than I usually express, of his passing and of the void he left. … Continue reading
Today is the five year anniversary of my blog . . . Assuming a noon-to-noon time accounting, I’ve been at this 3,652 days, or 315,532,800 seconds. The traditional and modern anniversary gift for five years is ‘wood’. . . . I don’t … Continue reading
Still busy with work around the house, hoping to get my improved office up and running sometimes this evening (it’s early afternoon as I write this post, but it’s scheduled to go live tomorrow morning). As I feared – well, more … Continue reading
. . . and I’m still trying to find a voice for my detective story. A plot would be nice as well, but for now I will settle for something that sounds like a detective story. A few people were … Continue reading
I came across a video earlier . . . this 18-years-old disabled kid is playing pranks on people. You can read about it HERE. Something occurred to me; the same thing that occurred to me when the show Scare Tactics was … Continue reading
In 2012 I wrote I did not see the point of NaNoWriMo, as I thought I already had what it took to write a novel. Let me clarify that statement . . . I already knew I could write a 50K … Continue reading
Still away, but we will be on the way home when this post goes up . . . Continuing with the plane-and-car motif, from the Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola, I give you Tomcat. Never realized how big these planes are until … Continue reading
We’ll be on the road a bit longer than planned . . . but, that gives me a chance to do different kinds of posts. Who knows, I might even do some writing. Meanwhile, I will continue with the plane-and-car … Continue reading
