Wishing for and Believing in Better

Hello from my office, It has been an incredibly busy Monday (it is about 2:15 p.m.) and I have another 7 hours to go.

Liberal Arts: A Life of Fulfillment

  Hello from my office on a Sunday afternoon, Over the past 36 hours or so, I have spent my time on two things.

Is it Stars Aligning or?

Hello from Danville, I am in the town where I do the great majority of my medical appointments waiting on a lunch appointment.

Being Thankful

Hello from my kitchen in the morning, Hard to believe it is already Wednesday of our break. Harder to believe it is almost the end of November; and perhaps hardest of all to come to terms with we are finishing the second decade of a new millennium.

Hello after a quick trip to Cape Charles and “Life on the Half Shell” and now weeks beyond, It is the end of the Bloomburg Fair week and Anton has had the week off of school.

My Conflicted Love-affair with Alcohol

Good morning from the Acre, I am back in Pennsylvania more about a month before my initial plan, but I believe it was a decision that needed to be made. As a person who plans more than some might believe, I can be flexible, but lack of control of my life or my schedule isContinue reading “My Conflicted Love-affair with Alcohol”

Cześć w chłodniejszy poranek z Krakowa, What I have said is “hello on a cooler morning” from the sort of intellectual capital of Poland, the former capitol city, Kraków.
