The Rickety Old Boat Is Sinking!

I wouldn’t call myself a hoarder. At least, not in the clinical sense or in a way that would get me cast on some “reality” show. When you walk into my place, you won’t find mountains of boxes, old newspapers, or a maze of dead and useless artifacts. You won’t hear distant sounds of gnawingContinue reading “The Rickety Old Boat Is Sinking!”

Chasing The Happy Hit

“Be happy for this moment. This moment is your life.” – Omar Khayyam So, I did something this weekend that I haven’t done in months. The last time I did it was way back in February. I think it was the last weekend in February? That’s, what, five months of not doing it? I can’tContinue reading “Chasing The Happy Hit”

Shut up! I love you.

“We must find time to stop and thank the people who make a difference in our lives.” ― John F. Kennedy Yesterday marked the thirteenth anniversary of my kidney transplant. Thirteen years.

Yeah, You Can Milk A Beaver!

They aren’t horrible words. They make sense and are, forContinue reading “Yeah, You Can Milk A Beaver!”

Bring Back The Clowns

Clowns. They aren’t that bad, are they? I mean, if they’re hiding in a sewer and offering kids red balloons then, okay, that’s kinda creepy. Is that how that movie went? Yeah, I never saw it and I never read the book. I’m not a fan of scary stuff. Too many real-world scary stuff. IContinue reading “Bring Back The Clowns”

When I Look In A Mirror

“I am not my body. My body is nothing without me.”  ― Tom Stoppard, Rock ‘n’ Roll There are times, when I look at myself in the mirror, that I don’t know who I’m looking at. I bite my lip, and the stranger in the mirror bites hers. I close one eye, and she winksContinue reading “When I Look In A Mirror”
