How I Met Niko
Short Story – this is a piece of fiction. I have never been to Tokyo and I am not married at this time.
The Death of the Library
We should learn a lesson from libraries, the place where we seperate fact from fiction. There is a line that demarks what is real and what is not. Without it, we all just become users of fancy believing that stories are real and real is a lie.
Artificial Intelligence vs. Artificial Sweetner
We are living in a period in which there is very little truth or fact. All is up for debate. I do not agree. Nature does not agree. Nature was perfect. Is perfect. Will continue to be perfect long after we are gone. We should listen to her lessons. They are clear.
Poop Story #1
I had a friend for many years. His name was Zach. He taught me to drink coffee as a tool to regulate my poops. I appreciated the information and have been implementing it ever since. Morning coffee followed by morning poop. As I get older and post the removal of my gallbladder, it’s now usually…

The basis of the concept as it relates to business is working towards attainable manageable goals and in turn can be applied to most things. They say every great journey begins with the…
A Dog in the Fog
Perspective is an interesting thing. I recently got a new tattoo. I wanted something unique and a tribute to my pops. I went with one of his paintings titled From the Horizon. The tattoo artist was super excited to do it because the original was actually art.Now, I do not think I know it all…
Quicksand – Stuck
Stuck. It’s a hard word to work around. Stuck. It means unable to move. I had a colleague once who told me a joke about quicksand. He said, ‘remember when you were a kid in school, you were taught to fear quicksand. They made it seem like it was going to be a big deal…
