Client called with a great idea, the next big thing! "What if you did a series on YouTube, about astrology?" “Like Bare Foot Astrology?” "No, you don’t get it! Like, explain the signs a little, then have a link back to you! People can get a reading then! “Don’t you see? Put it up on […] read more

Shakespeare’s Advice

From Peter Hall’s Shakespeare’s Advice to the Players – Shakespeare tells the actors when to go fast and when to go slow; when to come in on cue, and when to accent a particular word or series of words. He tells the actor much else; and he always tells him when to do it (provided […] read more

Coffee Maker Memories

Weird how this kind of material percolates to the top of the brain, unbiden thoughts that surface after so many years dormant. Coffee Maker Memories The first part is two-fold, and previously, I’ve written it elsewhere, I think. It was either a ‘Tom Thumb’ or Safeway, but I think, ‘Tom Thumb.’ It was 8-O’Clock coffee, […] read more

Lemons and Limes

The equations of profit and loss, metrics, and relative success. Prompted by this article, with a hook that caught me, “I owned a bar,” I had to stop, briefly, and consider.

Mercurial Tales of Woe

There’s a free eBook of mine available about this, see MercurySave.Us for details on that offer. One of Mercury Retrograde’s most common symptoms is ex-lovers, ex-whatever’s, showing up for unknown reasons. Buddy was there, we were joking about ex-wives, Mercury Retrograde, and my standard line, “Holy Water, Rosary, silver bullets, wooden stake, garlic… Nothing seems […] read more

Near Death Experience

Short link to an article about NDE, which, in turn is a topic I have experienced, first hand. The last one was the most clear, as I can recall the vision, previously annotated here. There was no doubt. When common elements surround each narrative of similar experience, that points to myth, perhaps even an Ur-myth, […] read more
