We are the miracle of force and matter making itself over into imagination and will. Incredible. The Life Force experimenting with forms. You for one. Me for another. The Universe has shouted itself alive. We are one of the shouts.

Ray Bradbury

The Rest of the Story, Chapter 2

Yeah… I know. This is posted on Bloggle Central, too. But’s its a crossover kind of thing. Chapter 2 To make a long story short, for the last four months I’ve been living in a bed & breakfast inn in Waterbury, Vermont. It’s one of those,...

The Rest of the Story: Chapter 1

So, Bloggle is undergoing changes. It’s not alone — the changes really reflect only some of the changes that have been happening in the life of your trusty author. And this is… The Rest of the StoryFive years ago — only five? — when I...

Sprung

Spring has sprung – finally! – in Vermont. This little snippet of garden is from what will soon be the new chez Cadmus in Williston. Just as soon as the whole homebuying/moving process is...

On-stage, and off.

It’s been a tremendous fun weekend, performance-wise. Friday evening the little improv company that I play with – Commedia Sans Arte – was featured at the Just Off Broadway theatre in Kansas City. While we’ve taken the stage together more than...

A Holiday Vision

The night sky is improbably bright. The beacon moon and its crystal corona wash the sky with a pale blue glow, paint purple shadows under the trees… Then again, the neighbor’s halogen Christmas lights might have something to do with it.

Let me ‘splain.

Let me ‘splain. No, that would take too long… let me sum up: I’ve been whelmed. With work, with a reorganization at work, with a new and rewarding position at work, with acting in an improv troupe, with grief over the untimely loss of my brother,...

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to all…And so begin the holiday rounds, which will likely keep me from my keyboard for a few days. Very probably a good thing. Let me take the moment to wish you and yours a warm and happy holiday, whatever day and whatever reason you choose to...

LOTR

LOTRAn epic dream come to life on-screen. Haunting and beautiful, and both at once, Peter Jackson’s film is faithful to Tolkein, without constraint. It is, in a word,...

Winter Angst

It would appear that winter has arrived in the heartland this year with a thud, a clink and a plonk. Sleet, the size of hail-stones, is raining down. While it’s a surprisingly effective way to achieve a winter transformation, there’s a squirrel just...

Dear Santa

I hope you’re sitting down. Maybe I should start by thanking you for all those years that you really came through for me. The drum set for my fifth Christmas completely blew me away. And even though I never really showed much talent for it [despite Dad’s...

Cave Artist Analogy Sighting

Richard Larson, MIT’s Director of Advanced Educational Services relates cave drawings to asynchronous learning… “The blackboard is basically an adaptation of cave drawings. In thirty thousand years there has been the invention of the eraser. A lot of...

Converting

Meta.I’m converting Bloggle from SSI to PHP, with an eye toward a far more interactive experience. While I’ll make every effort to keep the build process behind the scenes, some bits might break. [There’s always something, isn’t there?]...

Cave News

Having recently delved into the mythos and methods of mediums [and toyed with the ambitions and abilities of Thug, our archetypical cave artist], I’ve immensely enjoyed the recent discovery of what appear to be the world’s oldest cave engravings. So what...

Chip

There is a chipmunk looking in my window. I think it’s watching television. Given that the tele is tuned to TechTV, does that suggest the critter’s name is...
