Waking Up With Cozumel

I like to watch a town come to life. It begins Cozumel around 5:30 am and it starts slow. A hotel sees of a pilot in the dark and another car goes by 2 or 3 minutes later. Around 6 am a man in an unrecognizable uniform that has orange reflective bands pushes a large…

The Hope Garden

Any morning can have hope. Any person can have hope. Getting the two to align is the real trick. I have spent many mornings running into things, feeling overwhelmed, wondering what happened to my hope. Wondering if I could manufacture it from a memory that I had of hope from the night before. The answer…

Catch 22 Day

Everybody is up so I am up. The dogs are up. The kids are up. So I am up. There was a time when I slept until I didn’t like sleeping anymore and that is a time a barely remember. I think it was fraught with indecision and loneliness. Maybe it was a terrible time…

I miss ease sometimes but never knew it when it was upon me. I am stronger now than I was but I felt much stronger before. Knowledge takes away certainty…

They truly are a guilty pleasure of mine and I am always left wondering why we aren’t as happy as the good people of Von Happyshteiner Shlavilund. They react to the most inconvenient and horrific pranks with silly giggles and dancing….

Scalia – a lesson in turning down interviews

Poor Justice Scalia! The legacy he leaves to a barely watching populous that is more interested in loudmouth idiots than intellectuals that may not share their opinions is an interview with Piers Morgan. Honestly I don’t know if “Piers” is spelled correctly but I can tell you that I don’t give a shit! The interview…
