I've been thinking about dreams, and commitment, and faith. About heart and head, yin and yang, art and science. About how paths wander apart and then reconnect in ways that aren't always predictable. Taking that last metaphor forward, today's post is a trail that diverts a little from the path we've been on here recently: … Continue reading Something about faith.
I have a doctor friend who decided, several years ago, to start taking her own advice: Eat better, exercise more, drink water, and get some sleep. She'd been preaching this simple self-care, wellness mantra to her patients for as long as she could remember. One day, dissatisfied with her own health and wellbeing, she decided … Continue reading Creative Collaboration.
By "Thursday," what I meant was Saturday. We'll start on Saturday, which is today. And to get us started I'll repeat: what I believe is happening is that we're all short-circuiting. "On Friday night in Louisiana, a seven-month-old baby was shot in the head, caught in the crossfire during a drive-by shooting.

These posts will include almost nothing to connect them … Continue reading Creativity: A Template

Among the films I remember watching are these: What Ever Happened to Baby Jane; Hush Hush, Sweet Charlotte; Sunset Boulevard; Sorry, Wrong Number; Rebecca; Dracula; The 39 … Continue reading Night must fall. March forward anyway.
Also, old. Because that "dumb pop song," (Robert Smith's own words) was released in 1992. That's 30 years ago. Thirty. "'Friday I'm in Love' is a dumb pop song, but it's quite excellent actually, because it's so absurd. It's so out of character - very optimistic and really out there in happy land.

(Oh, come on; you know how I love a themed series, right?) I read a quote (author unknown) that was something like, "Tuesday is Monday's uglier sister." I disagree.
