A Profound Look Back at the Week: June 29 – July 3

I missed last week’s profound look because there was nothing to be profound about and I was too busy working because what does a person who has a lot of work do? Create more work for themselves, of course. Continue reading A Profound Look Back at the Week: June 29 – July 3

A Profound Look Back at the Week: May 4-8

May is in full swing after a few false steps necessitating the unseasonal use of the heating and all is reasonably well. Bars and restaurants have opened their gardens and people have crawled out. It could’ve been worse. Continue reading A Profound Look Back at the Week: May 4-8

A Profound Look Back at the Week: April 13-17

Another week, another step closer to the next season, be it summer or winter. Movement is good. Movement is exercise. We should all move more. Continue reading A Profound Look Back at the Week: April 13-17

Sit-Down Comedy: Lost

Remember when I said I was considering a career change into stand-up comedy after I told a number of people about how I got lost in Italy? It’s all right if you don’t, I just said it again. Only stand-up is not an option because I don’t have a stage to stand up on, so I’ll be doing it sitting down, in writing. Continue reading Sit-Down Comedy: Lost

A Profound Look Back at the Week: February 3-7

This past week was an odd one. I went to Italy and came back, and only managed to get lost twice. True, the second time was a master-level achievement since I got lost outside a mall with clearly marked exits and entrances but even so twice is subpar for me. I’m getting older. But I didn’t get infected with any viruses, so there’s that to be happy about. Continue reading A Profound Look Back at the Week: February 3-7

Well, that was all from January and what a January it has been. All the horsemen of the Apocalypse dropped by except Famine because Famine’s never left. And that’s just the start of the year. Isn’t this exciting? Continue reading A Profound Look Back at the Week: January 27-31

A Profound Look Back at the Week: January 6-10

The Lady with the Travel Bug

I’ve got this friend who seems to be traveling all the time. She doesn’t, of course, but she does travel a lot. Really. A lot. We’ve got a group chat in Skype that we use every day and I get tired just by hearing her latest travel plans. She’s a crazy woman and I love her, so I asked her, very nicely and not at all insistently, how she got this travel bug. Here’s what she wrote, mixed with annoying little comments from me.
