“The Y is like a museum of the aging process.”
. . . And THEN I started to wonder if we're ALL ghosts to each other. . .
In which I am shamed by the fact that I need digital encouragement to perform a function as fundamental as moving. Or something.
In which a poor facsimile of Hemingway-an dialogue is used to describe a common family vacation scene.
I-Scan, U-Scan, We All Scan. . .

I don't mean to brag, but I've been on quite the running streak lately. Most days this week, as a matter fact. On a slightly related subject, every time I get about a quarter mile into my run, I turn around to see a figure in a black, hooded robe and carrying a large sickle, floating about … Continue reading Runner’s High?
In a rare second-post in as many quarter-days, I offer another peek into my forthcoming* book, A Handful of You Will Be Succesful. It is certain to fly off of the shelves, and not in the super-cool Harry Potter way. Thanks for absorbing more of my wise words reading! Words of Wisdom for the Class of … Continue reading Aside //5 – More “Wisdom”
Occasionally, I feel led to dispense some words of wisdom (aka "W.O.W.!) to those around me. I was raised to be selfless, self-aware, self-sufficient, self-soothing, and humble. Thus, I feel it would be self-ISH if I kept these incredible observations to myself, to be enjoyed only by myself, only enriching the life of . . . myself.* … Continue reading Aside //4 – “Wisdom”
My wife and I recently visited the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC. What a grand and beautiful place. And a great reminder that the late 1800s would have been a MAGICAL time to be alive. Until you got a toothache or an infected toenail and ended up dying in a fevered sweat on one of … Continue reading A magical time to be alive
There’s a medical practice here in Louisville that specializes in a certain “medical issue” that is only applicable to men. They advertise quite frequently, boasting that they ONLY handle said issue. I won’t mention the issue specifically; those who live here will likely know the practice of which I speak, and others can use your imagination. … Continue reading An Unnecessary Moment with Unsolicited Medical Practice Advice from an Unqualified-Yet-Concerned Citizen // #1
My Dearest C, It's hard to believe it's only been a few days, for it seems like an eternity. I hope you are well and that you'll forgive this letter, but I find myself unable to stop thinking about you now that we are apart. No doubt that statement will anger you; you will remind … Continue reading A Love Letter to Carbs
My kids were eating cereal the other day, and on the box was the following phrase: "First ingredient: whole grain" I get that this claim is a comment on the supposed wholesomeness of the product, which is admirable. But it makes me wonder what OTHER ingredients they might be hiding? Because, if your second, third or even … Continue reading A Moment with a Food Labeling Cynic // #1
Superlatives: Just a quick observation as I reflect on all of these end-of-year awards that are being handed out: If I had TRULY been the "Most Improved Player" as many years as it was claimed, I'd be the NBA MVP right about now. Or at least "former." Thanks for the award, but you're not fooling … Continue reading SRS Report
