Ran into Camus and bumped my head

Accidentally bumped into Camus the other day, a dangerous thing to do on a balmy summer night. But he was sitting there with nothing else to do but open up to me.

New Year’s Dreaming, Year 2

It was last year around this time I opted to give up resolutions in favour of dreams. New Year’s Dreaming for 2009. The idea was instead of giving up something, do something I really wanted to do. Reviewing my list, I discover that out of my list of 100 dreams, I have done or amContinue reading “New Year’s Dreaming, Year 2”

Blogging is a saintly exercise

I’m a month into this blogging thing, and have discovered it’s one of the most fun, creative things one can get up to on the computer. And even when I’m off the computer, I’m thinking what I’m going to post next, wondering who is reading what I’m writing – and what do they think? ThenContinue reading “Blogging is a saintly exercise”
