May 26, 2018
Nothing good comes from living in the past. Driving down memory lane, especially with others in the bus, should be avoided. The reflections, like those showing on a small body of water are not sure, not true. The ripples distort the truth and we don’t have a honest picture of what we think we rem...

      Life. Buy a ticket. Take the ride. : I podcasted for two years. I did 62 episodes. Some people loved my podcasts. It was pretty cool to have a podcast. But just like my community website, it was more work than it was worth.  : Been there. Done that. Bought the t-shirt. : On…

  • From a Phnom Penh used bookstore
    May 24, 2018
    In Phnom Penh used bookstore I spend an hour but it’s worth it as I emerge with what turns out to be a wonderful Steven King book about time travel. What’s better is that it is 1200 pages long so I’m covered until I get back to Taipei.   We go next to the market…

    We were younger. That’s the most obvious thing. Open diary brings me a lot of joy. If is good for me to write everyday. I enjoy the writing, the wordplay. Writing things down helps me clarify my thinking. What I write comes back to me later in the day, comes back into conversations and thoughts. ...

    In Shanghai I noticed that they were holding the sixth annual jazz festival. I was there for a trade show that was in its ninth year. There was the second annual this and the fourth annual that.  There are constant reminders all around how new things are in China.  When I went to Beijing in…

    It was a tough night of negotiations. First the mind games and the waiting, then the bullshit, the smoke screens the red herrings and misdirections. Sander always said that the problem is never the problem. He said that the rational and logical problem is hiding the emotional problem. What I have...

    You can’t win every race, but you can get to the end. If you can’t get to the end, at least you can start. : My sales manager tells me he’s going to fire my colleague. My colleague has been waiting for it, wanting it. Wanting the decision to be made for him. I wonder…

    Day 15: ducks gotta fly I’m abandoning the 30-day no drinking 16-hour fasting blog title, continuing the 30-day of no drinking with no drinking meaning one or two bottles of beer a night. I had two beer last night. Who’s counting? I am. Beer as far as I’m concerned is not drinking. It might be&he...
