Damn, Those Endorphins

Last week I had a rough run. To meet my training plan, I had to run 7 miles – the longest I’ve run in years. I actually did 7.5 miles, but I didn’t really enjoy it. I picked a scenic route near New Buffalo,… Continue Reading “Damn, Those Endorphins”

Incremental Improvements: Sleep Reset

Day 5: I’m sleeping better. I’ve had five nights of sleep on this program. The first two days were awful, and I was super tired. But after the third night of sleep, my sleep stats are improving. The last two nights I slept through… Continue Reading “Incremental Improvements: Sleep Reset”

Can I Please Just Sleep?

Every year I dread the Summer Solstice. Everybody loves these long days to get outside and enjoy life until bedtime. It’s the bedtime part that I hate. My body is so sensitive to light and the heat of summer that my body doesn’t rest… Continue Reading “Can I Please Just Sleep?”

The Sweet Music of Friendship

Our friendship began in a cinder block suite in the now non-existent Lee Hall at Southeastern Louisiana University. We bonded over bottles of Riunite purchased with small change and shared packs of Virginia Slims menthol cigarettes. I don’t know why but I fell in… Continue Reading “The Sweet Music of Friendship”

Ahhhh!! Summertime in SW Michigan

When we walked out of Top Gun last night, we ran over to the marketing signage in the lobby to take a picture. A man was there with his family. He offered to take our picture, and we took a family pic for them.… Continue Reading “Ahhhh!! Summertime in SW Michigan”

The Difference Between Then and Now: Top Gun

I actually forgot about going to movies in a movie theater. I hadn’t been to a movie theater since 2019, and I’m not even sure how many movies I saw that year. But I really liked going to movies. I would scour the movie… Continue Reading “The Difference Between Then and Now: Top Gun”

We Are Not Helpless

It is so easy to feel helpless. My heart is broken over the senseless massacres of the last couple weeks. There’s no need to rehash all the details. Our government doesn’t seem to have the capacity to fix this. The fixation on that route… Continue Reading “We Are Not Helpless”

Give Me Some Unanswered Questions

I don’t remember when I started using the verb Google to mean “get an answer”. I’m sure I used it first in jest but somewhere along the way it just became part of my vocabulary. My friend Melanie and I were chatting this morning… Continue Reading “Give Me Some Unanswered Questions”

Help Our Truckers: My Monday Morning Rant

Last summer when I worked for a retail store, we had terrible issues with our Fedex deliveries. We had much understanding that it was pandemic-related but it really impacted our business. The account manager I worked with at Fedex was wonderful and tried to… Continue Reading “Help Our Truckers: My Monday Morning Rant”

Life’s Wetlands and Deltas: Relief Valves

I took Ashok to one of our favorite local hiking spots this morning. Warren Woods State Park is a lovely little pocket wilderness near Three Oaks MI. The beech and maple forest is one of the quieter parks in the area as it’s not… Continue Reading “Life’s Wetlands and Deltas: Relief Valves”
