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.

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…
