Making the right choice for your life.

Never trust anyone over 30.

Once upon a time a young man, maybe not unlike my younger self, was still free of the burdens of responsibility and accountability that accumulate with time and experience and without the cynical armor that develops with repeated failures. He considered this maxim as he approached his birthday, pondered it’s reality and told himeslf that he would be different.

Exploring the possibilities of life,

choiceexpedient and convenient are often more appealing paths than hard work and ambitious discipline. Without thinking too much about it, the young man’s thinking shifts. He isn’t aware of the change- or if he is he can rationalize that he is just being responsible and mature in his thinking. He isn’t taking the easy road. He passed the barrier and deceived himself that it didn’t matter. [click to continue…]

Springtime Haiku



I havn’t created any bad poetry in some time.  Thinking about the changes coming with Spring stimulated my creativity.  The result is three new haiku.  As always, I’d love to hear comments particularly if they take the form of haiku.  Why should I be the only one creating bad poetry?

Daylight Saving Time

Sun rises late
Setting way past dinner time
Bedtime confusion

Lazy Sunday

Override routine
Abandon priorities
Your pleasure awaits

Morning Coffee

Dark scent arouses
Startled taste buds rise and shine
Finally alive


Back from France

It is one week since we returned from France.  The jetlag is over.  I’ve gone through the mail.  Now I’m trying to get life back on schedule.  My book about One Month Travel is published on Amazon. But there is still work to do.  I need some tweeks like a table of contents and a page asking for reviews and I think that there are still a few typos to edit.  The content is  complete but the professional polish might be deficient.  I need to complile a summary of the France trip ad our lessons.  This trip, in many ways, broke out of our pattern and as might be expected there are plusses and minuses.  Finally it is time to step up the marketing for my book and for the concept of One Month Travel.  Time’s a wasting.
