Stuck In The Middle With Deux.

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…

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.

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.

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.

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 […]

Party of One, Please!

Life has been something of a red carpet ride over the last couple months. No, I haven’t been binge-watching Aladdin. I’m talking about the red carpet that stars walk down, the one where all the flashes of light are happening to the point where you almost go blind. I’ve been having these flashes lately – […]

Good Grief.

I have finally reached the age when funerals are more common than births in my circle of friends. O.K., so I’ve been at this age for some time, but I so love being in denial. It keeps me young. When I was 30, I even made light of the whole death thing. The theme of the […]

Make It Happen, Cap’n.

We are all so blessed to be alive. If you don’t believe me, consider the alternative. As I grow older, more and more people I know are passing on to their next journey. Some are older than I, which softens the blow, while others are younger, hitting home the message that you better enjoy every […]

A Leap Of Faith.

It’s a brave person who steps off into the unknown, knowing that there’s no going back and no safety net to catch you if you fall. Such was the case with astronaut Ed White. He was the first American to step out of a spacecraft and go for a walk in the vast emptiness of […]

Feeling A Bit Disconnected.

I was watching The Circle a couple of nights ago. If you haven’t seen this movie, you should. Even though it is clearly fiction – a movie about data mining companies becoming Big Brother, all seeing, all knowing – it has many grains of truth. I should know. I have been online for the last […]
