    Episode 86: Remember This One?

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    I’ve been traveling this past week, and I’ll be traveling home to my parent’s house next week.  So I’m doing a re-run today.  This is one of my favorite episodes from March 2012.  Since Thanksgiving is often a time when families share stories, I thought this one was appropriate for right now.  Enjoy!

    Remember - Memory is the ability of the mind to store and recall past thoughts or knowledge…does that include overstatements, embellishments and embroidery?

  • Episode 80: My Beard

    Episode 80: My Beard

    You know that moment on a television sitcom when you haven’t seen a character in quite a while and he returns with a beard and a story?  Well, this is kind of like that.  “Mike enters the coffee shop and drops his heavy duffle bag.  He has a beard.  After a long exhale he says, ‘You will never believe where I’ve been.’”

    Remember me?

    This week I attempt to explain where I’ve been the past four months.  Thanks for coming back.

  • Episode 32: Shirley You’ll Want To Hear This One

    Episode 32: Shirley You’ll Want To Hear This One

    One thing that I’ve never had trouble with was coming up with something to say. This gift for gab came rather early for me.

    Episode 32 is about a little four-year old me that can’t stop talking (and dancing).

     

  • Episode 30: My Bradbury Story

    “Everyone must leave something behind when he dies, my grandfather said. A child or a book or a painting or a house or a wall built or a pair of shoes made. Or a garden planted. Something your hand touched some way so your soul has somewhere to go when you die, and when people look at that tree or that flower you planted, you’re there.”  - Fahrenheit 451

     

    In this episode I talk about this signed page that is currently framed on the wall behind my desk.
