One of the characteristics that I hear a lot from groups such as the paleo movement and others that kick out the carbs is the concept of having more energy. More energy huh? That seems too good to be true, but hey, why not try? There are more reasons other than energy that I chose … Continue reading More Energy?
I love coffee. I mean I genuinely love the flavor of it. Tea as well. (Black, nothing added for both.) Were I able to, I would drink it at all hours of the day. The problem? Too much caffeine. This morning I woke up at 4am to get ready for the gym and then my … Continue reading Can I Cut the Caffeine?
It seems too daunting to even approach. This modern cynicism that appeared to culminate with the election of Donald Trump continues to grow in this country. This “us vs them” mentality. You are with us or you are against us. What the hell does that even mean? It doesn’t matter which side of the political … Continue reading Us vs Them

...or I don't care. There’s a funny thing happening to me as I write more: I am caring less and less whether I make it big. At all. That seems funny, but at least at this point it is true. Sure, there is that drive that I want to be able to make my living … Continue reading You’re either with me…
I listen to Sam Harris’ podcast “Waking Up.” I like the guy. He’s a fellow atheist, and one who values thought and reason over the rash, reactive environment we have in today’s atmosphere. But you think I am about to go political? Not a chance. Listening over several episodes, Sam has been telling people to … Continue reading A New Method
I got a few things out of the way in my long list of things to do as an indie author. I feel that it is a good time to get back to a more regular blogging pattern as well. I have decided to continue posting about writing and my writing journey, but also I … Continue reading Back on the Horse
