As a new year usually makes me do, I have been pondering my 2017 and thinking about what I want for 2018. I am a sucker for reading a lot of self-improvement tomes and articles, and I very much enjoyed this one, which wraps up 2017 and sets a good scene for planning the next […]

We did it. I won’t take credit alone, since everyone who commented on these posts all month long really helped me keep the momentum up. Some lessons gleaned along the way: – Drawing is fun! As a kid, I always liked to do it. I wasn’t great at it but I took Art in high […]

Honestly. I get a lot of these types of things in my inbox, because I am a sucker for them. There are about 46 new “morning productivity” blogs every day. Like a list…a list that is much the same as the other lists…will finally crack the code for my mornings, and lead me to fame, […]

There is only one best way. Happy Thanksgiving!

I always have the best of intentions on planes, and I do get good writing done. I also listen to whole complete albums on planes and I find that works wonderfully. I once wrote the best bridge I have ever written on a plane back from Washington, D.C. Other times, like this trip to Albuquerque…I […]
