When I look back

September 17, 2018
When I look back, there often isn’t much I would do differently. There are more things that I wouldn’t have done than those than I wish I would have. That’s something. Regrets, I have a few, but then again, too few to mention. That says a lot. I took chances, big chances. I saw the…

    I’m often Bob Harris, and especially at times like these, when I’m back from afar with no real immediate goals and commitments. I’m lost, drifting free of the realm in my own not-so-perfect world without focus, with too much scope of possibility. I drink through a half bottle of whiskey and then ...

    Back. 20-days gone. I think I broke with the patterns, took apart the routines, took myself apart and then put myself back together again, leaving the unneeded pieces in roadside rest stops, utilitarian campgrounds and maybe in the mountains of the western states and provinces. I don’t know. I ho...

    Eighty percent of life, they say, is just showing up. I would agree. I am a living embodiment of that sentiment too.  I do, therefore I am.  I’m very consistent in my life, my work, the way I take care of the multitudinous and minutia around the boneless chicken ranch, operating like now, from th...

    I mean really. Who would call a place Beano’s? I can’t eat in a place called Beano’s. If you put so little effort into naming your restaurant, how much care goes into the food? It doesn’t sound at all like fine dining. Sound’s like a place that offers a blue plate special.  : There is…

    I sometimes think I should have been a lawyer. At least that way, when I argue with others they would have had the same training as me. They wouldn’t have been idiots. They would have been playing on the same, level playing field.  But no.  I argue with the emotional and the egotistical, the unde...

    Many things don’t work out.  Our plans and hopes and dreams are dashed along the way or damned at the very beginning though we don’t know it or know it but can’t admit it to ourselves. We tell stories. We make the best of it. We construct our little worlds. We adapt. We narrate our…

    I’ve got a book I’ve got to read.  Eight days till we leave on our epic road trip and I can’t get the hot water to work. I think it is the igniter switch and I have an appointment with the dealership for a week after we get back, but really, I don’t much care. …

    I divide my months into thirds which puts today in the middle of August. The middle of August will be followed by the end of August. And then September. Summer is slipping away. It took so long to get here and it now it is counting down toward the end.  Already.  I don’t know if…

  • Sounding it out
    August 8, 2018
    The rain woke me up today. It was after 9 and I was drifting free of the realm. I thought it sounded like autumn.  : I woke up in Beijing in 2004 with a low hum outside my hotel window. I looked out into the early morning fog and saw the sound of hundreds of…
