Dominance Is For The Birds

4:45 am The sun is late today… or I am early. Thoughts of getting ahead of the day prodded me as I lay tricking my consciousness as it lay tricking me. So up after 30 minutes of silent battle and I have done more in 2 hours than in days. What is it about the…

Echoes of Sustainability

True sustainability has to be measured on such an unimaginable┬áscale that I fear I may not be featured in a great deal of it, historically speaking. Somewhere in time lived a man of meager means by today’s standards. But when his fellows took stock of his wealth they marveled at the inspiration seen there. They…

Believe This

Belief is the end of the argument that is incomplete.

Old Blue Bricks

Old Town San Juan, Puerto Rico. Old blue bricks are like old blue people. They are askew and┬ábroken in tiny and monumental ways but they are still holding their position. They could not be more unique and discolored by experience but they fit in. Their role is what they are. They are the silent placeholders…

Real Life Unfolding

Today I drive to Florida.  In 2 hours I will load two dogs, three kids and one wife into a giant vehicle with no concern for fuel consumption and drive toward an impossible peninsula filled with well meaning hoards of elderly people, meth heads, and 25 foot pythons.

Happy Blue Bacon Day!

Smell The Evolution

Always in hurry. Never on time. This is the modern state of being as far as I can tell. Or is it? Modern, I mean. Did neolithic man find himself rushing around the mountains and plains gathering and hunting with no time to just take in the beauty of his surroundings? No time to have…

40 Yards And A Mule

Today is the biggest of the three days per year that I care about football. I live in Savannah Georgia so I have adopted the Falcons and now they’re going to the Super Bowl and I am going to a pizza place. I don’t eat pizza and I don’t play football but I’m very excited…

Perfect Pharmaceutical Loop

Went to the gym… now I feel better… why do we always forget that immediately?  Why does my mind fight my body in most things that guide my life? Hey big pharma? Do you really want to own us forever? Make us a self discipline pill. The most addictive pill ever. If we get hooked…
