The memories in this blog are how I remember things. It might not be exactly as it happened, but years of drinking scotch tends to change history – hopefully for the better

They say that when you are dying your entire life passes before your eyes in just an instant. There is another way to experience that sensation, of your entire life passing so quickly before you, one that leaves you in a much less permanent state of death. You want to watch your entire life pass before you in an instant? Just h...Read Full Post »

I was one step away from finishing my first online dating profile when I was stopped dead in my tracks. I somehow needed to find a photograph that captured the essence of the comfortable-wearing-a-Tuxedo-as-blue-jeans-ballroom-dancing-skinny-dip-loving-cuddle-crazy-macho-poet Frankenstein that I created in my bio. No ...Read Full Post »

It’s Tuesday. And there’s been too much going on for my liking this past week. I’m sure it’s no different than what any middle class suburban family of five has going on, but that doesn’t make matters any more palatable. I like quiet and simplicity. I hate being overly busy and even mild chaos throws me off.

I experimented with being a thespian once but that was back in my college days.
I have a great love of movies and I always thought in the back of my mind that I could be an actor. However, I never really made an effort to fulfill that small, but persistent, dream. I never worked on school plays or musicals in high school and was co...Read Full Post »

Back in the early to mid-nineties when I was writing and submitting serious short fiction, or what I would categorize now as 'shit no one wanted to read' I found a champion of my work on the internet. I submitted a short story called 'sale' about a man who finds the meaning of his life while rummaging through the house...Read Full Post »

I have never been one for expensive cars, I'm just glad to have one that it starts in the morning. Did I ever own an expensive one? No. I once went into a dealership and asked for the cheapest car they had. I walked out with a stripped down 4-cylinder red Toyota pickup truck with no radio and no air conditioner and was ...Read Full Post »

I love psychics (but you knew that). I have been going to them for years. I don't live my life by what they tell me (maybe I should) but I really enjoy listening to what they have to say. I've been to quite a few over the years. I've sat in a store front window in Greenwich Village while a gypsy read my palm. I can't tell you how many kitchens I ha...Read Full Post »

I tend not to go to the doctor when something is wrong; I will muscle through the pain until it goes away. Do not mistake this for some strong-stoicism because I will complain every minute that the pain is there. It was this anti-stoicism that landed me in the hospital just a few days before my son Alexander's third birthday.
I wo...Read Full Post »

With all the traditions that come with this time of year, there is one in particular that my friends and I have not celebrated since we started having kids and the holidays became all about them (thanks for ruining Christmas, kids). Every year, after the tree in Rockefeller Center went up, we would gather as many of us as we could and we'd venture into New York City. Some ...Read Full Post »
