Let me start out by saying that I’m not a young guy. This writing gig that I have just recently poured myself into ideally should have started some 20 or 30 years ago. But, life has a way of cluttering up things and in this case- it does a really good job of mucking up the mind with other nonsense such as careers that are made to pay the bills and other mind traps such as current events and politics. Oh, I could go on and on with that last one…but alas, that’s not what I’m here for. I’m here to write about the thing that is fuel to the writer like gas is for the car. I’m here as a 55 year old…

Hoping that I can still stir those creative juices and fire up a book or two at this ripe old age. I’m thinking that experience has to count for something. I may not have held a pen very long in life but life has held me for five decades and that should fuel me up with a lot of good ideas- right?

We’ll soon find out. I’ll be dipping a pail into the word well very soon. I’ll let you know how it tastes…

I am simply amazed at this new technology that is for ever advancing. I’m away from home and my office PC yet I’m still able to do much of what I do there on my iPhone.

I have a lot more to say but I must go now because there’s a strange looking man peering at me from over the top of his
coffee cup- at the next table over.

At McDonalds for lunch. Catch you later!!

I imagine a young man 50 years ago sitting in a pub, like I am right now, taking in the sights along the shore of Lake Superior. His name was Robert Zimmerman. Words probably cascading through his head- waiting for something brilliant to spill out of his brain. I too await that moment….

This blog will feature my daily thoughts, rantings and other interesting morsels of my life including book reviews and yes- where do I get my ideas for the stories I haven’t written yet?

Hope you enjoy!
