8th January

I have a secret… My Birthday is on Saturday. I will be 35, going on ancient. This Birthday will probably be the hardest Birthday I will have suffered through, not because I feel any older, but because I realized an entire year has passed and I didn’t know it.  I didn’t realize it…

HOW DO YOU MEASURE TIME?

A stopwatch? A clock? A calendar?

I don’t have a traditional job… I don’t wake up at a traditional hour, and I don’t go to sleep at a traditional time… Friday is no more exciting to me than Monday… Every day of the week has the same importance as the one that came before or after.  Call it a champagne problem of being a director, or that of not having a job.

Maybe when I was younger, the idea of not having a 9-5 would … Read More »



Confessions of an Addict

11th February

Stop reading this blog… Seriously, stop reading.  Surely there are better ways to spend your time than reading words of a has-been hack that really has nothing important to say.

Wait. You’re still here?  Um, okay… Fine…

Surely you can think of something better to do than sit in front of your computer…

A nice walk in the park… Conversing with someone you love.  Maybe checking out a museum or learning a new language…

BUT, if you are going to read my blog I propose a challenge to you… Do nothing else in the time it takes you to complete this post.  Do not check your email, answer the phone, or go make yourself a turkey sandwich.  Be PRESENT…  Truly present…

I AM AN ADDICT…

I have something I really need to get off my chest… I am an addict…



RANDOM THOUGHTS FROM THE ROAD

26th April

THE DEVIL’S CARNIVAL ROAD TOUR

I am writing this blog from the back of a van… a van that has thus far traveled 7,000 miles in the last few weeks.

A van that smells of tears and sadness.  Tears, sadness, and corn nuts… let us not forget the corn nuts…

I am not sure what state we are in… It’s snowing outside, and it’s cold.  I am guessing we are in one of the Virginias, but that is just a guess…



Something important to say

7th February

For the last 6 years, any time I wanted to blog I used MYSPACE.  Even as recently as last month. I knew no one was reading, hell, I am not sure if anyone is even still on myspace – BUT – at the same time I also knew I didn’t really have anything important to say – sans news about REPO showings, and what not.

But NOT TODAY… Today I actually have something to important to say. Important enough that I finally decided to use this webpage I bought some years back…

We spend the first quarter of our life in various learning environments. Preschool – Grade School – Middle school – onto High school… Some of us go onto college and further our learning… Some don’t.

In all of those years of education I spent countless hours learning random things that have … Read More »
