Seize the Day

Carpe diemĀ 

In life, religious books can serve as a guide to live. These are old texts, manuals that have stood the test of time. Over the winter, I went to Arizona for Spring Training and attended Sunday service. No, it wasn’t the church of baseball. Rarely, do I take the time to attend on vacation. I’m […]

Switch and the Glory Days

The Nintendo Entertainment System. After growing up with Atari, this beast of an electronic device came along to change and remake an industry. I was used to Pitfall Harry and fighting endless hordes of Centipedes. With Mario, there was a princess to save, hidden coins to discover, and warps to different worlds. This was gaming […]

Pepper’s Ghost

Completed in 1969, the Haunted Mansion maybe one of Disney’s greatest creations. Imagineers spent ten years bouncing around ideas before settling on the final version of the ride. When I was a kid, this was my favorite attraction at Disney World. It wasn’t one of the mountains-Splash, Space, or Thunder. Pirates of the Carribean was […]

Making a Claim

Copyright. It’s an important concept for any writer, creative, or organization. Because there are few things in life worse than getting robbed, I guard my work behind firewalls and encryption. I’ve been known to use vaults and safe deposit books too. This is probably silly. At times, I wonder if these barriers are simply a […]

The Project Equation

A year ago, I jotted this down at the coffee shop. At the start, only drawing boxes trying to be playful. Then, I decided to up it a notch and create the equation for the perfect project. Or, use it for anything: career moves, moving to a far off land, going on vacation. I became […]

The Shuttle

I visited Kennedy Space Center on New Years Day. The last time I stepped foot near the space beach? Maybe, 34 years ago. It’s one of my fondest childhood memories. I grew up loving the space program. Watching the launches on television. Seeing the giant crawler slowly making its way toward the pad. Feeling awe […]

Glancing with Style

I admit it. I’m an Apple fan boy, a somewhat critical one. For the past eighteen months, I’d been holding off opening my wallet and handing over my hard earned cash for the Apple Watch. Before, I was always a Fitbit supporter and a Garmin user for longer runs. And Apple’s entry into this space […]

Faulkner Nobel Address

As we move into a brave new world, I felt this speech was timely. Faulkner gave this speech at the height of the cold war. During a period of great fear, he pushed for a new optimism. It’s also a testament to the trials and tribulations of being creative. Why we, as humans, shall continue […]

Keyboard Snobbery

I have to admit I’m somewhat of a keyboard snob. I grew up using a type-writer (lots of whiteout and work to get the paper aligned oh so right) and then the wordpressor came along. These devices were built around the keys. For me (I’m a bit biased being an IBMer), the Model M is […]
