It’s Just The Normal Noises In Here

October 15, 2019
I took eight versions of that picture above when I was walking by, and like usual, the first one I took was the best. It's funny, but as I'm getting older I find that there are times I actually yearn for a quiet place - this city is so noisy, all the time. I was…

    Which I didn't know was a thing (gummosis) until I learned about it through the wonder of the internet. The cherry tree in our yard is leaking sap at a crazy rate - what I learned is that this behavior is a symptom of damage from insects, wounds, weather, or other poor conditions. Now I…

  • Teen Dreams of an AOR Age
    August 29, 2019
    Not really a dream at all, but Scenes from an Italian Restaurant came on Spotify this morning, which for some reason bounced a memory out of the vaults from when I was a teen. Remembered back to a time visiting my cousins in Florida - they were living in a house by a canal, where…

  • Making Peace with a Violent World
    August 7, 2019
    There was an incident last night in Times Square - after dark, but while the tourist crowds were still at their height - a motorcycle backfired. Thousands of people mistook these sounds for gunfire and fled Times Square, trampling and injuring others, pounding on closed theater doors to be let in...

  • Posting this from an airplane
    July 25, 2019
    mostly because I can 😃 I'm somewhere over Colorado Springs-ish. So weird, that we can fly in the sky in these metal tubes. I thought I had something clever to say about the technology required for me to be posting an entry from 35000 feet in the air, but it evaporated. Not as clever as I…

    Randomness because I can't focus on one thing to write about today. https://twitter.com/BiIIMurray/status/524677269252751360 Bill makes a good point. I've always had a love-hate relationship with time travel storylines in sci-fi, partly because of this - if time travel was an actual thing, why ar...

    July 15, 2019
    One of the other members had an entry the other day that was asking what movies really flipped you out or scared you - and my immediate reaction was the original Night of the Living Dead, in black and white. I am no horror movie fan by any stretch - but that movie was shown…
