A good lesson indeed.

In my youth (for me, that is from birth to age 55), I used to assume everyone was just like me. Since the only experience I had ever had as a person was as me, how was I supposed to think otherwise? This, of course, caused issues in my life. I think the fact that […]

Deja, deja, deja vous.

Posted by admin on January 18, 2021 in Life Lessons |

I am hardly the first to recognize that these are interesting times. Especially for people born after 1969. For Xers, Z’s and Millennials, everything seems to be falling apart, civilization crumbling all around us as we deal with the issues of racism, white supremacy, homelessness, poverty, violence and hatred. Oh, and a global pandemic. It […]

Where the hell have you been?

Posted by admin on January 9, 2021 in Defies Description, Life Lessons |

That’s a question I often ask myself, now that the calendar has changed over from a virtual hell to one of promise and hope. I was going to originally add peace but we all know how the previous week has played out. My last RobZerrvation was just shy of one year ago, when I was […]

That Isn’t Funny.

Posted by admin on June 17, 2019 in Life Lessons |

We are losing our sense of humor. And that is an extremely dangerous thing for our civilization. Our new found P.C. attitude where everything ends in “-ist” and “#metoo” is creating closed off worlds where we no longer have to think about our own belief systems, foibles and fears. instead, we isolate ourselves in spaces […]

I Wanna Be An AstroNOT!

Posted by admin on February 19, 2019 in Life Lessons |

I was watching a great show about the space program the other day. It was a bit surprising since I can rarely find a show I haven’t seen at least once. Even the crappiest documentary or movie will get my attention. In this case, the documentary was In the Shadow of the Moon and was […]

Stuck In The Middle With Deux.

Posted by admin on November 12, 2018 in Life Lessons |

It’s done. The elections are over (except in Florida). We survived another test of our democracy and it’s a new day. Some people are jumping for joy. Others are angry. Now we move forward/backward as a country. That / is where I live. Call it what you will, a slant, a solidus, a stroke, or […]

The More Things Change…

Posted by admin on October 1, 2018 in Life Lessons |

I came across a great quote the other day. It was by Heraclitus of Ephesus, an early Greek philosopher. He said: “You can’t step into the same river twice.” This took a while to sink in. And then I realized its profound meaning, that is so simple, yet so lastingly true. Change, whether we like […]

Fame Or Fortune. Pick One.

Posted by admin on July 23, 2018 in Life Lessons |

A couple posts went looping around last week on Facebook asking others to share a story about someone famous they had met. There was plenty of namedropping, of course, some names more well known than others. I didn’t post a reply, largely because I’m not really all that impressed. Growing up, I was never starstruck. […]

A Pirate Looks at 60.

Posted by admin on May 28, 2018 in Life Lessons |

One of my favorite songs to perform is A Pirate Looks at 40. It’s about a guy in Key West who never really found his calling in his lifetime. Eventually, his biggest wish came true, for when he died he was cremated and was kept on top of the cash register at his favorite bar. […]

Next Time. Maybe.

Posted by admin on May 14, 2018 in Life Lessons |

My son turned 20 a couple days ago. For his birthday, we decided to take him to one of his favorite local restaurants. He was running a bit late, it was happy hour, and well, the beer finally got to me. Not in a drunk kind of way, mind you, but in a bladder kind […]
