Try This On

At the risk of getting to be known as Mister One-Note, I'm going to write about parks again. One park particularly, anyway. You'll dig it. I have pictures!

Last week the missus and I were talking to a friend about her and her four children taking a hike with us somewhere together. She was up for it and…

Cold Comfort

Snow after the spring equinox should be a crime. I realize that this would be futile, as to name it a crime would also necessitate apprehending the perpetrator known popularly as “our solar system”, that entity being only an infintitesimally small-time racket in thrall to a vast syndicate known as The Universe, who I must assume has some really good attorneys and so attempted prosecution probably isn't worth the bother and the fees. It still sucks, though.…

Sanctuaries

I'm about to use a word that strikes most people with either fear or elation, or at least a sudden urge to leave the room. Even elated persons might find their momentary joy deflate into dread, because this word, though ubiquitous in its usage, is a powerful one, and often hearing it out of another's mouth may cause some awful wrothful (say it three times fast!) consternation when it's not uttered just so, even when those hearing it use the word quite frequently.

Here it is:…

Spring!

It's spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you've got it, you want - oh, you don't quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so! ~Mark Twain





I'm ready. Are you?

Refuge

I tend to be one of those people who discover things after everyone else. Sometimes it's because I have this obstinate streak that doesn't want to follow the herd (I stubbornly resisted letting go of my vinyl until my last turntable literally coasted to a stop and never worked again, thus thrusting me into the digital age, and YES I realize vinyl is popular again, THANKS), but other times it's just because I either don't pay adequate attention or I feel I don't have time to bother learning…
