11-28-11: Wild and Vikings and Ballers, Oh My!

Hello again everybody...

Yes, yes I'm back at it again.

I will warn you, however, not to assume any sort of pattern here. There's enough going on to do some quick notes and I had some time of a Sunday eve to write them up. When I'll write next is anybody's guess!

Expectations lowered? Excellent!

So on to today's missive...

Right after the quote!

“A man is not idle because he is absorbed in thought. There is a visible labor and an invisible labor.”
- Victor Hugo (1802-1885), French poet, playwright, novelist, essayist, visual artist, statesman, human rights activist, and exponent of the Romantic movement in France.

Next time you see me and it appears I'm idle, think again! I may just be invisibly laboring! Or something like that...

Wild and Vikings and Ballers, Oh My!


11-24-11: Not Buying In Just Yet

Hello again everybody...

I know. You're surprised, right?

Can't say as I blame you. I told you many moons ago that while I wanted to get back to writing, it was going to be more about “when the spirit moved me” than “on a regular schedule”.

Sadly, plenty of other things grabbed my attention and I found myself with neither the time, nor the inclination to do much writing in recent days... weeks... aw hell, it's been 4 months. Who am I kidding?!

But that's changed... at least for today.

So on this day when we take a moment to give thanks, I'll say thank you to the sports muse for moving me once again. Who knows when I'll write next, but let's just enjoy this moment for what it is, shall we?

What moved me to pen this particular missive? I'm glad you asked. And I'll tell you...

Right after the quote!

“Most of the change we think we see in life is due to truths being in and out of favor.”
Robert Frost (1874-1963), American Poet

We want a winner so badly here in Minnesota that we're willing to lose perspective (i.e. sight of the truth) to get one.

That's why you can say...

I'm Not Buying In Just Yet...
