This is a repost from Facebook of a game Alan Gann got me playing….where you write on a particular year in your life. It’s fascinating that Alan Gann assigned me “30” for the age to write about. Because it was a memorable year. I don’t even need to re-read journals to remember. When it started, […]

The Down Elevator

Elevator

Leaving the hospital with my father-in-law just now, we shared an elevator down with an evangelical/Bible Church preacher. I’ve done enough hospital visits over twenty years to be able to pick them out. He was a short man. A foot shorter than me. Stocky. Built like an NFL linebacker. How did I know he was […]

Extra Beats

Ever since my medical tests last week, I’ve been visited by a vague and unsettled feeling. A restlessness of a sort. It’s a feeling that something’s changed even though, technically, nothing has.

My iPod’s Most Listened To Songs for 2011

It’s New Year’s Eve, which means it’s that time again. Time for the yearly peek at my iPod/iPhone for the “most played” songs for 2011. As with most years, there’s a delicious assortment here. The fun is in looking at the list and determining exactly why these songs made the list, and remembering the times […]

Resolve To Not Resolve

Didn’t make any New Year’s Resolutions last year. Won’t this year either. And this is from a guy that used to make them regularly. More than this, I encourage you to join me. And I hold out a strange hope that you might find yourself achieving even MORE of your goals/resolutions if you do…er, don’t. […]

500

According to Blogger, this is my 500th blog entry. That’s a whompin’ load ‘o writing, seems to me. Hard to imagine it, really. I started this blog using some software that no longer exists and whose name I can no longer recall. Then, I moved it to Rapidweaver, when I re-did my whole website, using […]
