Be the bear

Slow down.   Sure, the next 700 words are important but if you only remember one thing, it’s the two words above. And I mean it in a literal sense as in, when you are driving or biking or skating or even walking-slow down. But also in a big picture [...]

Every day is Earth Day

Happy Earth Day party people! Now, let me tell you why I don’t like Earth Day.   One would think that with my philosophy of radical environmentalism and love of mother earth that this would be a big holiday for me. All the biking, cleaning of Nathanson creek, teaching environmental [...]

Men behaving badly

A good man   Takes responsibility for his actions. Protects loved ones. Is healthy in mind and body. Plays the long game. Plays by the rules. Recognizes and corrects his failures.

Day 352 Pandemic Golf

Pandemic golf is not like regular golf (no bunkers because you can’t rake the sand traps, masks and social distancing, no sharing clubs or balls or scorecards). But luckily, it’s also a lot like regular golf. Fun, healthy, relaxing, just what we need right about now.   I rush from [...]

Day 339 Ambiguous Loss

I am the solution.   Yeah, I said it out loud and it’s time you started saying it too. Be the solution, get all Chevy Chase from Caddyshack, “Be the ball Danny, see the ball…” what do you want, it’s golf season in the year of Koyannisqatsi.   Ambiguous Loss [...]
