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
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.
This is the first post of our cruise for which there is no corresponding post from the ship. That means no versions of these photos have been seen anywhere in the universe before now. . . . except, you know, … Continue reading
If posts were maps, this one and the rest that document our Caribbean cruise would be shown under the label “Terre Incognite”. Perhaps more appropriately, “Terre e Oceani Incogniti”. That’s because this and future posts about last year’s cruise do not … Continue reading
The second part of the original St. Kitts posts (HERE) concerned itself with our visit to Brimstone Hill Fortress. There are two sources I suggest people read to get a sense of the history of the place. Once again I … Continue reading
OK, on with documenting our now more-then-a-month-old Caribbean Cruise. Interesting . . . the editor flags “then” as being wrong. The quick rule, as I remember it . . . ‘than’ if making a comparison, ‘then’ if referencing time. I think I … Continue reading
The morning of December 14th saw us heading into the Bridgetown port, Barbados. The locals mostly paid us no mind . . . It looked as if our room would be facing the harbor and Bridgtown, but somewhere between me … Continue reading
St. Lucia was not much of a stop for us. As a reminder, HERE is the post I did from the boat. These photos are essentially the same, or nearly the same, as the ones I did from the phone. … Continue reading
Part I HERE. Back in the boat, we took a shower, ate, grabbed snacks, and then planted ourselves on the balcony as we waited for our departure from Antigua. By the way, the buffet had an endless supply of breadsticks. … Continue reading
December 12, 2014 . . . nearly a month ago, we pulled into the port in Antigua after two days of sailing from Ft. Lauderdale. The original post of that day is HERE. This is a supplement to that post … Continue reading
The morning of December 9th found us docked in Port Everglades, Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. We got up to the pre-dawn view of the port. Below is a freighter being nudged by a couple of tugboats slowly maneuvering it into dock. … Continue reading
The sunset photos were nice . . . but I wondered how they would look in various treatments of B&W. I used onOne Suite, Topaz Suite, DxO Film Pack, and Silver EFex Pro 2. Click for larger version in new … Continue reading
