Civilization Failing?

For the past several weeks I have been researching a lot of very different avenues concerning Western Civilization. For that matter, I suppose one could say that what I have been looking at is the civilized societies (so called) of the world. Comparisons require a base or foundational starting point so I went back to […]

N. Korea

As an ex-military guy, I have been watching the press’ furor over N. Korea with a fairly good knowledge (even after all these years) of what the Koreans are playing with when challenging the U.S. military. To give you some context concerning my thinking and what I am writing about I need to bring in […]

Thinkin’ ’bout you

Seems like I’m always searchin’, searchin’ for some piece of me, Seems it never occurred to me, you took that piece with you. A song I am writing. I promised myself that I would not ever put my life in a blog when I started writing again. I have mentioned here that it has been […]

A Coup?

No matter if you are military or merchant being aboard ship for extended time having only dead reckoning and horizon to horizon blue or grey becomes like a crystalline capsule of memory. It shapes a persons Id. It […]

Rhythm in Time

Tell me, as you have gotten older have you seen or felt the rhythms in time? It’s an interesting aspect of aging and I think it is a part of wisdom. We can call it experience but I feel that it is more like the magnetic attraction of birds as they fly north and south. […]


Think about this very deeply. Don’t think that I am going on and on by asking this. There is a very salient point to this question and it is not a trick or superfluous query. Why Are You Alive? Most people do not consider this enough. Not the shallow answer, “my parents.” For being alive […]


I don’t know..should I confess? Sure as hell! I smoked dope from 1973-1976 ending pretty much when I got married. It was a social thing and it was what spurred a lot of parties and a hell of a lot of fun. Back then a lid went for the average of $7.00. I must say […]
