The “Second Half”

12 May, 2019 Ken Business & WorkChroniclesEveryday LifeFamily & PersonalGames & GamingParkview

Working up to my 50th birthday, I decided to stop digitizing the rest of my old files — if anything was that important, I would have done it by now. It’s not a lot, just enough to add to the filing cabinet, which uses far less drawers worth of stuff than it used to. Between […]

My Prejudice of Good Faith

7 May, 2019 Ken Everyday Life

I’ve come face to face with myself many times this year, realizing my prejudices regarding those things I see in other people. For example, I value contrasting opinions, and so often spend too much time second-guessing what everyone knows in favor of what one person may feel. Not all agreeable counsel is good, of course. […]

Cemetery Tribute

21 January, 2019 Ken Family & PersonalUncategorized

{Sent to my step-family in Arizona to read at the graveside service for my Father} My feelings and admiration for my Father have never been a secret kept from him or anyone. There was never a time when he wasn’t my hero, my role model as a human being, a man, and a husband and […]

Dad, a New Life

21 January, 2019 Ken ChroniclesFamily & Personal

It’s been over a month, but I still don’t know where to start. So many things. So many feelings. My Father passed into Eternity, and my faith and memory of him brings me a peace in this, but it’s still hard, so hard. I have to keep reminding myself that Jesus wept, too. Anyone who […]

A Whole Year Passes

5 November, 2018 Ken Everyday Life

Have I been THAT busy? I spent most of this time preparing for and dealing with the responsibilities as Master of a Lodge. “I’ve sold my soul to the company store.” But I will write about that elsewhere. I started the Amorphous Publishing Guild — dba papers, bank account, bought a batch of ISBNs, and […]

Our Pumpkin Patch

27 November, 2017 Ken ChroniclesFamily & Personal

Merry wanted to be married in a pumpkin patch, but we just couldn’t pull it off. I wanted a traditional Christian priest, but the Roman Catholic Church doesn’t perform outdoor weddings without a dispensation. I called the Episcopal diocese, then Greek Orthodox (where I had friends), Russian orthodox, and possibly a few others, but their […]

Letchworth

11 October, 2017 Ken ChroniclesFamily & Personal

Letchworth I remember as a child old black-and-white movie reels projected on a wall. One of them was footage of a trip taken by my parents and grandparents to Letchworth State Park. I always meant to go ther some time with Merry and finally got the chance. Earlier this year, a reunited friend from high […]

Of Bits and Books

14 August, 2017 Ken Editorial & Discussion

When asked if I prefer books or ebooks, my response was thus given: If I merely want the knowledge, digital is fine. But if I want the EXPERIENCE of reading, the physical media is part of the content. I use digital media to keep up on countless fields, but if it’s something that I want […]

I Love Lyft

4 August, 2017 Ken Business & WorkEveryday Life

I’ve always been the DD or the guy people call for a ride. I love driving and love people. I have spare time, or like an excuse to get away from the computer screen. Ridesharing was a no-brainer. And Christina said I would be good at it. And I think I am. A few weeks […]

Almost a Past Life

26 May, 2017 Ken Family & Personal

Almost didn’t go to my 30-year high school reunion. The idea felt weird in an age of already keeping in touch with Facebook or people you already see regularly, and many of whom you really didn’t know well enough to keep in touch with in the first place, and have become essentially different people.┬áBut it […]
