I will never be able to watch pro golf on TV again because when I look at these players now, I no longer see them as masters of their game. I see them as pawns and sell-outs in a billion-dollar deal to make people with shady ethics richer and dangerously powerful.
The Start of Whimsical Wednesdays
Whimsical Wednesday is what G and I have decided to call one day of the week where we will deliberately do something that breaks our routine. Both of us like routine and ritual. Maybe a little too much. We plan our days, weeks, and even our quarters because it’s the only way to get our … Continue reading The Start of Whimsical Wednesdays
Inspired By In May
Inspired by: Spring and the prospect of filling containers and gardens with these: I’m also inspired by this Kevin Kelly quote, which I am taking as my summer mantra: Emily and I have started using the video messenger app, Marco Polo, and I’m enjoying it more than I thought I would. I like seeing video … Continue reading Inspired By In May
A Good Day In Computer Hell
I sat there from about 10 AM until 6 PM. With one break to pee. No food. I was locked in. I was obsessed. I was making baby steps. Then it wouldn’t work. I’d try something else. Still no luck.

But what I am really loving at the moment is this canned non-alcoholic aperitif called Ghia. I like the Le Spritz soda version. I also love the company’s tagline: “More bitter than a bad divorce.”

We Are All Looking At Each Other, Trying To Figure Out How To Live
We look or read about other people’s lives to see if they have a better way of doing it: a cooler way, a more fun way, a more meaningful, transcendent, spiritual, healthy, perfect way.
Playing The Infinite Game Of Softball
Head Coach Edith Gallagher G’s season so far has been a complete disaster. Her team is not just losing; they are losing epically. For example, they allowed 18 runs in one inning the other day—one inning. It’s partly that she has a young team: eleven rookies. It’s partly the calendar: doubleheaders back to back on … Continue reading Playing The Infinite Game Of Softball
