It’s all about me

When this blog was first created, it was because of my books. There was no way, I was told, a writer could succeed in today’s market without a web and social media presence. Fair enough, but even back then I made sure there were no illusions about my blog. From the choice of its name… Read more »

Nuclear proliferation

I’ve never considered myself a leader. Looking back over my years in Corporate America, I can see that I had high ideals but a mixture of immaturity and naivety likely caused me to hurt as much as I helped. Now that I’m all but done with public life, I can focus on what I hope… Read more »

I’m not preaching…

A thought burbled up while I was shaving the other day, “I wonder if people think I’m being preachy in some of my posts?” If you’re wondering why I would be thinking that instead of concentrating on the dangerously sharp piece of metal angled precariously near my carotid artery,… Read more »

No news is bad news

Really bad. Awful. Hard to watch, read or hear. I’m sure you’ve noticed. How could you not? We’re surrounded with it constantly. I was hoping the occasion of the once-every-four-years presidential election process might provide some relief, but I underestimated the proliferation of “news” sources, made even more ineluctable by the presence of the internet….

Escaping the trap

‘Twas the morning of Christmas And all through the dark, Not a creature was stirring But me on my walk.   Shortly into my journey, As is often my way, I began composing my blog To post later that day.   Perhaps it was the manner The solitary full moon shone That led me to… Read more »

That’s easy!

Having finally graduated to Hermit – Junior Class, one thing that becomes immediately apparent is I better be doing the shopping myself if I want any holiday presents. Unlike Brave Sir Robin, however, I know the answer to the questions three, and both my quest and my favorite color come into  play. Owing to the… Read more »
