The Worst Thing You Can Possibly Do… And YOU DO IT–Incessantly

Total click-bait, I know. Sneaky, I’m not. But, shit–it’s the internet age. You have to practically slam people into oncoming traffic to get them to pay attention. Even to themselves. Especially to themselves. I won’t disguise this one in metaphor. The worst thing you can possibly do–and that which you do incessantly–is to poop all…

The New Sexy: Upgraded (2017)

  Here’s The New Sexy: Upgraded. (If you’re coming from my old site please scroll down to where it says, new.) Until recently, when a woman over 40 checked out my dating profile, the first thought that automatically popped up in my head was too old–and then I quickly moved on to the next profile.

Unbecoming

It came to me while writing my morning pages today. I have been calling myself spiritual for years. What’s the essence of being spiritual, though?

My Cabin Steward is a Shaman

It’s the little things. Always the little things. I’m been traveling on a ship that has traveled from Germany to Africa and which is now headed to the Caribbean, and I haven’t had to make my bed. Not once. Each morning, I leave my cabin (usually in a semi-wreck state) and when I return later in the…

Stowaways!

Eighteen–and counting. That’s how many countries I’ve visited so far. But is it true? Sure, I’ve traveled through that many countries, but have my feet touched the ground there? No. To really experience a country, my feet have to touch the Earth there in some form or fashion. Which got me thinking: My shoes are the real…

The Secret of Italy: Buongiorno

    There’s something special about the way people greet each other in Italy. It’s like music. Poetry. Art. Buongiorno. Say it aloud with me. Really elongate the second syllable. Buon-gioooooor-no. Contrast it with hey–or hello, what’s up or good morning. They’re not bad, but they’re not exactly crepes falling from your lips, either. Buongiorno. (Let…
