BLOG / My Fingers Don’t Go There

“Come on, you know you wanna.” Oh, the temptations, the peer pressure. I know it’s what everyone else is doing, but, somehow, it just doesn’t feel natural to me. I try to tell myself that it’ll all be OK…once it’s over.

Maybe Lady Gaga’s right…and I was  Read More

BLOG / Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes

Jimmy Buffett makes me think of margaritas. Do any of you remember his album (and title track), CHANGES IN LATITUDES, CHANGES IN ATTITUDES? Any of you remember Jimmy Buffett? Rather than dragging you all down that tired, now congested path called Memory Lane, I’ll get to my point pronto.

How many of you  Read More

"K-E-DoubLe-oh...Double-good...Kellogg's-best-to-you!"

Boy, howdy! I may not be no “double-naught” spy, nor do I have the movie-star looks of any Dash Riprock, but sure as shootin’, I got me one fine mess of a story to tell.

As an adult, the letter ‘K’ only represents one word, “karma.” When I was a kid, it stood for  Read More

BLOG / As a writer, no 2 words have more meaning than…THE END.

It was a starry foreboding night long ago now. Rather than the end being in sight, it was an unanticipated beginning, a miracle chance to start life anew. And I was scared shitless.

After having solved the mystery of my lifetime on December 31, 1991, I’d spent nearly the entirety of 1992 wondering ‘What do I  Read More

Headstones, copyright law, a writer’s workplace...and coincidences.

“Hey Holger, Why don’t you read one of my books sometime,” I suggested innocently. “No, I don’t zink zo…too deprezzing.” “What are you talkin’ about? No, not depressing. Inspirational. And, they’re actually kinda funny.” Holger shook his head from side-to-side and we went back to guzzling, I mean, zipping our  Read More

INTERVIEW / At 17, college-bound Cady’s got life covered.

Let’s rewind the clock a bit, shall we? When I was 17, AT SEVENTEEN by Janis Ian was the #1 hit song on U.S. radio. The coolest people then had it “goin’ on” and disco was just about to be born. Tons of vivid memories flood my mind when I look back to my  Read More

Showing up is _ /_ the battle.

Please fill in the blanks. Which fraction did you come up with?

The traditional 1/2? A third? Two-thirds? 100%? A perfect 10? Well, the last two aren’t really fractions, but you catch my drift. This is a great saying and I think its answer s/b (should be) well thought out. There’s no doubt any  Read More

My 2010 wish for you.

Keep asking why. You know why? Because that’s why we’re here. OK, enough with the question words. Yes, over and over and over again, this theme repeats itself, much akin to history (for those who haven’t yet learned from it, because they never asked, w--?) In my opinion, history’s just  Read More

Be An Innovator, Be Yourself.

If you agree that ancient cavemen had a sense of humor, here’s a little something they may have said to one another, “Why did the chicken cross the road?” Answer, “Because it had never been done before.” OK, it’s not a belly laugh. It may not even warrant a chiseled-on-a-stone-tablet LOL or : Read More
