Big data and big change await the future historian
OK, so this 66 day challenge is a little bit of a challenge...but, yesterday while walking Tobey Sue I enjoyed the flowers and lush greenery during our morning walk. Appreciate the blooms during your next walk or drive - there are few things more magical!
Day 7 of the 66 day being in the moment challenge - road trips. A great road trip does not have to be long, but it should always be fun and preferably to somewhere you have not been before. Don't be in a hurry. Road trips can be purposeful and structured, but never rushed. An afternoon … Continue reading Road trip!
Day six of 66 days of in the moment (6/66) - history. We spent a couple days at Fallen Leaf Lake just north of South Lake Tahoe. At around 6,377 feet, we were well into the Sierras, plenty of fresh air and spectacular mountain views. In addition to appreciating a great view, Fallen Leaf Lake also includes other features … Continue reading Of mountains & history
So many of us pay so little attention to what we eat and even less attention to how we eat

Day three of 66 days was another easy one - Tobey Sue. I ALWAYS look forward to coming home, especially after a long day when I am feeling frazzled, to be greeted by my puppy. Life is better with a dog.
Habits of the Journey
Day one of 66, aka 1/66, was easy - friends. This past week I had a wonderful dinner and conversations with friends, some of which I have known for over two decades. I felt better afterwards. There is a reason for that - friends help you live a longer and more fulfilling life. Fact. Friends are vital for good health … Continue reading My Peps
The grass is really green right where I am, no need to jump over any fences. This weekend I will be running a 10K at the ZooZoom in beautiful William Land Park. I am lucky.
We spent a long weekend traveling through Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks. On the way we listened to Hemingway's For Whom the Bell Tolls. Oddly, I have not read much Hemingway before. I like. The story is set in Sierra de Guadarrama Mountains in a plot to destroy a bridge to Segovia, Spain, during the Spanish Civil War. The experience … Continue reading Trees & thee
That's what it took to build the Golden Gate Bridge. Recently I ran across the bridge and was quite impressed even by the scale and craftsmanship of the plaque at the base of one of the towers. We started our 7 mile run from Crissy Field, which has it's own great history. Crossing the bridge is just over … Continue reading 4 years
Allure, beauty, importance. Not inherent. Ascribed through shared and individual memories. Events, persons, and trends. Etched with the slow cadence of time. Diligent work by wind, fire, water, and earth. Texture and patina.
Dog walks, wonderful moments of my day. Once in the morning and again at night. Simple pleasure to start and punctuate each day. December 7, 2015, was a terribly difficult day. My life was better because of you. Parker Ray, papa misses you.

What a great afternoon
It's an intensely political and multifaceted debate. But what is it?
Every time we return to Bodega Bay makes me think about our big adventure and the days we spent walking the beach anticipating the future
Why we don't talk about WOW every day of our lives?
It's like riding a bike
Sometimes the whole is not more than the sum of its parts.
