When I was young boy, I dreamed of playing guitar in a rock band. I played some awesome air guitar while blasting my favorite tunes from my giant boombox. Later, I found an old tennis racquet and the tactile feedback of strumming it like a guitar made me feel like a real guitarist as I watched hours of MTV and dreamed […]

In 2012, I wrote about failing at NaNoWriMo and, at that time, I resigned myself to the fact that it cannot be done with my schedule. I also compared it to running a marathon without training, or running a 5K after an eight hour work day with two hours of commuting. If you don’t know what […]

Well, here we are again. The beginning of the closing of another year. A year older and hopefully a year wiser, right? I sure hope so. It’s been since February since I’ve blogged, since I’ve written anything, really. Apart from Facebook posts, a few tweets and some snarky emails, my creativity level has been at […]

Over the years, I’ve seen this type of question before and, often, I’d answer the question by mentioning people in history who possessed the courage to change the status quo. I’ve also answered with select family members who came and went before I breathed my first breath. I wanted to know their motivations in life […]

There have been more than a few memes making its rounds that asks the reader if they could send a letter to their past selves, what would they say? There’s even a book of letters from published authors, actors, and musicians to their teenage selves. This idea is meant to inspire those who are struggling now […]

The iconic band, The Rolling Stones, mused that time was on their side and The Byrds told us that there’s a time for every purpose. George Carlin had a funny bit about time  (video NSFW) in 1978. Most competitive sports are regulated by time as our lives, of course, are also regulated by time. Time […]

Where I live, the typical greeting upon seeing someone you know is to ask about their general well-being? The question is almost automatic and is often answered with the same or similar question. Man From Accounting: “Hi, how’s it going?” Woman From HR: “Well, hello. How’ve you been?” Many other English speaking places around the […]

“No space of regret can make amends for one life’s opportunity misused.” – Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol This is the time of year when we begin to think back upon the past twelve months and take stock of where we are today. Some will resolve to make personal changes in their lives on New Year’s Day. […]

Having begun the slow process of taking inventory of David’s things, from his clothing to his toys, we stumbled across his song book. Apparently, David had been writing songs. One, in which, was titled “Beautiful” and it was supposed to be a Christmas present for one of his friends. He didn’t get any further than […]

The holidays. A time for family gatherings, gift giving, and binge eating.  The eggnog and wine will flow and the hearths will crackle with love and warmth. The traditions of games, stories, and the excitement that Santa Claus brings (even for the adults) can be a magical time for many. Those who are fortunate will […]
