I probably should start planning now

Nope, this isn’t another post about Halloween. For one thing, that planning is already done. For another, it’s all about doing now, not planning. What this post is all about is my next big adventure and what I want to (or should) do. Whatever I decide, I probably should start planning now. Age is more than a… Read more »

A life full of failures

Quiet time is dangerous for me. It leads to introspection. Introspection and I spend too much time together already. Because, this often leads to retrospective thinking. And that means reviewing a life full of failures. Generally, I’ve grown, if not comfortable, then at least accepting of who I am. Too much analysis is a tiresome… Read more »

I have no idea what I’m writing

In the penultimate post from “Creative Week”, we continue to talk writing. As you will see, however, much of the time, I have no idea what I’m writing. So, let’s set the wayback machine to almost 10 years ago. Gosh! I can hardly believe it’s been that long! But, there it was, “Black Monday”. My… Read more »

Writing in the right lane

Kind of confusing, being I’m a lefty. But, in most respects, that’s exactly what I’ve done throughout my writing “career”. Just like in my drawing (see yesterday’s post), comics were a big part of my inspiration. Also, Grandma. Yup, strange but true. So, let’s take a trip during “Creative Week” on my road to writing… Read more »

Have art will travel

Day two of “Creative Week”! What’s in store today? How about some more tales of my artistic adventures. Specifically, how, during this period, I am always with my trusty sketchbook and pencils. Everywhere I go, hence the title, “Have art will travel”. So, I mentioned yesterday that I only had one art class in my… Read more »

In the beginning

It’s been a while since I did a theme week. Frankly, I’m tired of politics and general rambling. So, I think it’s high time to bring another one to the blog. Recent events are stirring my creative juices (more on that in Friday’s post). Therefore, without further ado, I present “Creative Week”. The first installment… Read more »

Battling artificial deadlines

Since I left Corporate America, I haven’t had any deadlines to meet. That is both a good and a bad thing. I no longer have the stress of a “drop dead” date. But, I also don’t have the motivating force behind “you better get this done!” So, I end up finding myself battling artificial deadlines…. Read more »

KLUTZMAN!

Slower than a falling dish! Less powerful than a double oven! Unable to leap over short tree roots! Is it a rubber chicken? Is it a weather balloon? No…it’s KLUTZMAN! Genetically endowed with the rare klutz gene, gifted to him by his more talented klutzy Dad, KLUTZMAN is an identity I have grown into. It… Read more »

The cold hard facts

I’ve joked about it for years. Really, long before I was blogging. It makes for quick laughs, but it’s actually quite bothersome. I don’t just dislike cold, I’m actually allergic to it. Think that’s a myth? Here are some cold hard facts. I always wonder why I have physical reactions to cold. It has gotten… Read more »

Thinking about thinking

Okay, two political posts is my limit for the week. Any more than that and I’ll be changing the name of the blog from “Ramblings” to “Grumblings”. I think it’s time for a change. Of course, that’s actually the problem. Thinking. Or, more accurately, thinking about thinking. Here’s the deal. Basically, I think I think… Read more »
