I Can Laugh Now

Picture this, I had to go to Chicago on a business trip this past week.  There wasn’t a lot of advance notice, but it was not the first time, so I sailed through the trip arrangements and off I went. Arrived Monday afternoon for … Read More

Looking Back

I have no idea where to begin.  I really haven’t properly logged my experience in Cornwall, and I don’t have my notes with me and I’m bushed.  For the moment, we’ll leave it at incredible.  Newquay was a gorgeous piece of earth, as was all … Read More

Coming Undone

Excuse me if I’ve written this before.  It’s entirely possible.  Because every time I travel, there’s this surreal feeling of my life unraveling.  Maybe it’s just symbolic, but from the point I bundle up whatever possessions are going with me and lock the front … Read More

Art Show & Recap

Fàilte! Time is just flying by day by day, here. Thanksgiving came and went. I felt like I spent a chunk of it back and forth between here and home. The photo show was Friday night. I would have loved to have been there, … Read More

Siesta Time

Well, here I am safely in Merida in the Yucatan state of Mexico.  Funny considering a month and a half ago I could not have found it on a map.  At this point, I´ve thoroughly read the Merida part of my Lonely Planet Yucatan … Read More

Skye’s The Limit

Yesterday was an entire day just on the Isle of Skye. The weather was decent, not perfect but good. Some occasional mist but really there was some sun, and it is Scotland in winter, so will not complain. Since we were spending another night … Read More

Ch-Ch-Changes

So, I’ve been nearly absentee lately. Terribly behind on responding to messages and comments, etc., but the end of the year has had my real world life hopping. Work, work, work and no time to even think about my trip at the end of … Read More

California or Bust

As it’s almost 11pm and I’ve plans to get up ridiculously early to meet Aaron and June, this installment will be necessarily short. For those not in the know, I’m out in San Jose for a business meeting on Monday that I’m thankfully able … Read More

Instructions not Instructive

Life is Random Yesterday, I was heading home from work, barely a couple of miles from the office when I saw a white blazer waiting to merge in with heavy traffic from the opposite side of the road and doing my bit of good … Read More

Sitting in traffic this morning, it occured to me how much the traffic in Atlanta has to say about the lives we lead. Even in the short five mile commute to work, there are people constantly jockeying for position. People who can’t wait their … Read More

Had my first creative writing class tonight. Was quite enjoyable. We have several assignments to work on for the next class – some reading, some writing exercises, as well as an ongoing assignment to keep a journal of observances, thoughts, etc. I guess to … Read More

Long few days… Friday started out with such promise. It felt like a good day. Got up on time, no traffic to speak of… Hit the last stop sign before work (well, not literally, but it felt like I did…). Immediately after that stop … Read More

Long day. Tried to get to work a little earlier today because I knew that I was going to hang out with some friends from work who all leave earlier than I have been lately. Of course, this was destined to not be fun. … Read More

Today was a subdued Christmas. My Mom has a little tribe of outdoor kittens. Their momma had them here last Spring and left after awhile. Most of the kittens remained behind plus we had a couple of others show up (perhaps helped by someone … Read More

Got home last night (Wednesday). It was on the late side. Got off of work early, and ran home and tossed everything in the car. But when I got to the comic shop, comics were late… I’m already missing two weeks between Christmas and … Read More

You’re Getting Very Sleepy… Had my doctor’s appointment on Thursday. It is a pulled muscle that’s causing the pain in my side. They’re muscle spasms and can be brought on by something as minor as breathing. Yay!! I’m glad it’s nothing more serious, but … Read More

File this one under: You know you’re getting old when: You go to work and spend the first two hours of the day wondering whether or not you turned off the heating pad that you were using to doctor your aching foot. And then … Read More

What do you say about today?? I don’t think that I or any of us will forget the attacks on New York and DC today. I’ve felt like I was living in a dream all day. We all sat around today and listened to … Read More

More or less just got back in from this evening’s walk. I didn’t end up going to Lowe’s this afternoon. I got a call just as I was ready to leave this afternoon and it was raining so I figured I might as well … Read More

DragonCon 2001 – Day 1

Day One of DragonCon 2001 ended last night. Was a long day of course! Drove to the airport to pick up Brandy and her friends, Jan and Karilyn, yesterday morning. I was late and, of course, their plane was early, but it worked out … Read More
