Fighting the gray skies of January

We’ve hit the middle of January. In the U.S, we’re one month into winter with two months still to go. This is usually the point in the winter when I get tired of the cold and gray skies and need to regroup, remembering that the dark days of winter will not stay forever. It's usually...

An active imagination

The guy sitting by himself near the Gate C sign in an empty waiting area of the airport was running from the FBI. He kept his head down and was careful every few minutes to look from one side of the airport to the other. He was looking for anything out of the ordinary and... Continue Reading →

What do I want to do when I grow up?

I know that I’m not the only one. I know others suffer from this too. My problem? I’m in my mid-50’s and I’m still trying to figure out what I want to do with my life. I'm not going through a major life-changing event or a mid-life crisis, I'm just trying to figure out how... Continue Reading →

Time’s a wastin’

The early bird gets the worm.  Time and tide wait for no man. Time is money.   Time flies. Okay you get the picture. I’m hyper sensitive to wasting time. I’m very much an achiever, I'm restless until I'm able to accomplish something -- both big and small goals -- each day. I need to be... Continue Reading →

Writing myself into a corner

When I was a young reporter, we'd come back from a meeting or event and we would be under a tight deadline. You didn’t have a ton of time for lots of discussion about the best approach to take or what flowery language to use in the piece. We would often start by typing out... Continue Reading →
