I Learn More From Fiction

Lisa and I just binge watched a new Netflix show called “Dead to Me”. I won’t reveal any spoilers, but I can say that it’s unlike any other dark drama or comedy ever made. The creator calls it a “Traumedy”.

Better Than Me

I'm not naturally talented. If you ask me why I had a somewhat successful career, I would have to say it's because I went out of my way to surround myself with people who were better than me. I got lucky, in that a higher power or dumb luck kept sending them my way....

All At Your Fingertips

When’s the last time you visited a public library? You know, the brick and mortar kind, in your local community? Maybe it’s been awhile, and maybe you’ve already guessed that I’m going to compare it to the internet. Do you have any idea why and for how long free...

American Man

Lisa and I drove a nearly 400 mile round trip yesterday, so we could watch my brother Rich play guitar for 45 minutes with a country band. Tom Dobson is a young country artist from Connecticut with his first album out on an independent label. He was the opening act...

Blink of an Eye

It's been an interesting week. From Central Vermont, you can be anywhere in New England if you're willing to drive a few hours. Montreal and Boston are both day trips. After following the Yes tour through 2 states, we settled in at home for only a day before heading...
