Social Media Iconoclast

Iconoclast: A person who attacks cherished beliefs or institutions. There is something incidious about all of this. The images that spring to my mind are of the Sourcerer’s Apprentice or a squirrel on an exercise wheel. Micky in that Disney classic uses his master’s magic to help with a chore. The magic gets out ofContinue reading “Social Media Iconoclast”

Isolated in a WW2 submarine

Outside its trying to snow. Trying because the air is too warm, Snow flakes are not landing. Suits me. I’m inside and snug, inside a submarine in the western Pacific. We’re on war patrol – its 1943. Binge watching a 1950’s TV series called, “The Silent Service”. Having YouTube play one episode after another withoutContinue reading “Isolated in a WW2 submarine”

Flying away from all this

My doctor wants me to go to the hospital. Tests on my heart. I haven’t been anywhere for nearly two months. The hospital!, That’s the last place I want to go.

The thoughts are those things I was concerned withContinue reading “A use for old sketch books”

deferring to the future

I’m not now feeling as flippant as I did yesterday. Not too depressed, but depressed all the same. Before when I felt like this I would take a ride. Therapeutic motorcycling. The car works too, but not as well. With every day getting warmer it’ll be a struggle to wait til the 15th. That’s the anniversaryContinue reading “deferring to the future”

Nearly two months!

Didn’t create any content for my site yesterday. Not motivated. Being lethargic in cycles is the norm for this 74 year old. Burning the midnight oil, leaning over the drawing board in 15 hour stretches….something for twenty somethings. But, its a good thing. The idea that one needs to produce SOMETHING every day isn’t realistic.Continue reading “Nearly two months!”

My Kindle Children’s Book

Its always been my dream to get a book out on kindle and make a zillion dollars wining all awards possible, feted by heads of state, celebrities doors open to the loftiest offices in the land….but it didn’t happen. However, at least I finally got a book up on that site. This was the firstContinue reading “My Kindle Children’s Book”
