My father is severely ill right now. I will not be updating for some time.
When I walk outside, I don’t see a jaguar hunched down, ready to pounce. I don’t see a bear wandering around, or a pack of wolves, hungry, ready to make me their meal. As I go through the day, I don’t have to worry about where my next meal will come from. I don’t have … Continue reading Useless Anxiety
Again? Really? You may have noticed that I’ve posted every day this week at least one time. Yes, I am trying the daily blogging thing once again. Over the last year I was at best posting once a week. Once I had tried this blogging every day thing but it hadn’t gone over that well. … Continue reading Dealing With Doubt
It's already a strange feeling being a fan of a team outside of the city you live near. A stranger in a strange land in a manner of speaking. Even stranger when the local team you live near is the Cubs, the World Series Champions. Not so weird because they are the champions, but that … Continue reading Loving the Worst
I am getting these out a little slower than I wanted to initially, but I promise to have them all my About the Book series out in due time. This one is about my science fiction dystopian novel, "Of Earth and Ice," that I am putting out in 5 parts. Soon after will be the … Continue reading About: Of Earth and Ice

This review also appears on Amazon and Goodreads As someone who doesn’t sleep well, who was diagnosed with apnea, seeing the title of this book caused an immediate need to shove aside all other books I was reading at the time and open this one up. I am glad I did. Now, admittedly, I did … Continue reading Book Review: The Sleep Solution by W Chris Winter, MD
Let’s get it straight out in the open: I am an American, so I know if this were a real scenario, I wouldn’t be going to Hogwarts anyway. I’d be going to Ilvermorny. That’s beside the point. Back to the fictional world. I love Harry Potter. My wife loves Harry Potter. My son loves Harry … Continue reading Which House Do I Choose?
Day 1 Lately I have been reading far more non-fiction and self-help books than I would ever have thought in the past. My reading lists used to be exclusively fiction. Occasion one might have seen me with something other than a story, but those were often the exceptions rather than the rule. Not so much … Continue reading Being Proactive
