In no particular order, instructor, designer, father, neighbor, husband, brother, son, narrator, driver, story-teller, friend, author, coach, democrat, executive, home-owner, role model, artist, reader, gamer, listener, and once again a member. I am also almost always the observer, the contributor and frequently the mainstay... but very rarely the catalyst. (My children tell me that I have mellowed in my old age.) In my heart, I am also a writer.

Father’s Day

Denny’s serves a breakfast hotplate that I really like, so I found my way there today while the Caregiver did her amazing Thrift Shopping thing.  After waiting for a solid half hour to be seated, the server informed me that they were trying to “pace” the kitchen staff which apparently had several newbies attempting to keep up with the orders.   While I watched the Father’s Day crowd pile up at the front entrance, my food finally arrived almost 45 minutes later.  The pleasant surprise was…


The Life Spent Fashioning My Roar

Where am I?

I’ve never felt like this before. It’s an odd sensation, as if I am roaring outward and moving fast. Really fast. Roaring seems a peculiar way to describe this, because I can't hear anything.  Still, I know that I have become this powerful roar that comes…

I wonder why they build these airline seats so narrow these days.   That doesn’t make much sense.

I’m more relaxed than usual on this trip, which is surprising.  There is certainly a lot more riding on my shoulders than usual this time.  There’s always a lot of pressure,…

I noted your idea of writing something based upon Abandonada in your request to be a friend, which I happily accepted by the way. When you are of a mind, you would enjoy Michel's photos taken of the place here:


Also, a Wordpress friend recently wrote a delightful little piece that she claims was inspired by some photographs of mine. I was so flattered. You can see her little story here:

The. "Piano Man" avatar has been associated with my persona and profile in a number of places on the internet for quite some time. In fact, I just recently update my avatar on OS to reflect my current activities and status. I still use Piano Man on other platforms...Though I am flattened by your request, I must ask that you refrain from including the avatar in your post .....I will respond to your friend request after I've become better acquainted, oriented, and situated on this platform.....Thanks for the invite!
