The Music of Our Youth

The Music of Our Youth

by Often, the music of our youth speaks to us. Sometimes it has specific messages, and sometimes it just reminds us of what it was like when we were young. Sometimes both. I didn’t do a lot of concerts as a teenager, and I really haven’t done that many as an adult, either, but I …

Return to Writing

by So as the complete lack of content on my blog might indicate, I’ve been very focused on my primary career so far in 2018. To be honest, I could say that about 2017 and the end of 2016, but it’s paid off. I’ve had a couple of promotions, raises, and significant increases in responsibility …

2018 Reading Goals

2018 Reading Goals

2017 Reading Summary

2017 Reading Summary

Haiku on Friday

Haiku on Friday

by So there are times when I’m a haiku addict, and while I mean more writing than reading, there are several books in the house and I have a twitter stream saved that I can skim whenever I feel the need. That stream gives me a cross section from incredible to cringe, but it’s always …

2017 Writing Summary

2017 Writing Summary

by Let’s face it, 2017 was a rather weak writing year for me. The year came with some major life adjustments, including, in particular, a much-increased set of responsibilities at work, some family health issues, and dealing with my oldest child moving out on his own to go to school. Less an excuse and more …
