I Do Declare…

Jazzing up the blues is the only way to deal with a RIF

Alligators are perfect

A good opening line is like a siren call to the muse

Here comes the new month on the wings of hope

Some Mondays are like this

The year’s half over and this isn’t anything close to what I thought it’d be

A musical genius has departed this world

Sometimes that ticking clock is right in your face

We need to do something about this month’s lack of holidays

The clock is a fierce opponent

The most important question in novel writing is “What if?”

New Year’s Eve needs to happen more often because I have resolutions to make

Such trying times call for updated nursery rhymes

A good historical work is better than a DeLorean

The Autumnal Equinox is upon us and it’s time to turn, turn, turn

The bots are connecting some weird dots on my job searches

Wodehouse speaks for all of us this fine October

The U.S. Navy could use a dose of my dad’s humor on its 245th birthday

A total of ten hours by train and six hours by car to tell someone you don’t know that she’s a blessing is not too much

Hurricane season is milking 2020 for all its worth

This is precisely the time for a Toni Morrison quote

Election hostility is a matter of “it has always been thus”

This month is dragging on so much that it calls for another Toni Morrison quote

God doesn’t want us cherry-picking our thanks

A WW2 spy thriller is the best way to get past the turkey leftovers

Pressfield’s advice is itself a gift

COVID makes 12 days seem like 12 years

Outside God’s birthing room, I ponder what it means to wait

It’s not sweet sorrow if it’s 2020 you’re parting with

Christmas decorations illustrate how I can go from sentimental to pragmatic at warp speed

A bleak January Monday begs for a Dorothy Parker quote

No one proves the power of words like Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Being mistaken for Naval Intelligence isn’t as great as it sounds

February is the best time to share the Steve Jobs quote I love most

Snark-watching entertainment is becoming my new favorite hobby

Every Lent, it seems the question is “Where is God in all this?”

Rabbit holes are cozy little places and I want to live there

Lent is kinder than it used to be

Caesar should’ve known today lasts all day long

Mother Nature has no clue what season it is

People will make a meme out of anything, and I think that’s a good thing

An inspirational quote from Ray Bradbury is a fine way to start April

I think about that sprinkling of water on my head all the time

*Right Now* it’s hard to tell what day it is

Gardening is a lot of work and a lot of reward, but mostly a lot of work

May begins with a reminder to pay attention to what we’re paying attention to

Mother’s Day is a time to think about birthing things

Summer is upon us and growth is everywhere

Adjusting expectations and pace does wonders for productivity

The start of 2022 calls for a quote by Neil Gaiman because of course it does
