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. […]

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 […]

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 […]

Cars

5 May, 2017 Ken Everyday Life

Last year I met with a couple regarding a wedding, and having already postponed it once due to weather I went out in a blizzard. I turned into a plaza, but my car didn’t. I displaced quite the boulder on a median, but apart from smelling but not seeing some fluid, I wasn’t too concerned. […]

A Bright Change of the Years

6 January, 2017 Ken Everyday LifeGames & Gaming

The air lately has seemed oddly like Spring and it whets my appetite for it. But I would have wanted a touch more of a snowy Winter I thought to myself, and so it happened — we will have brilliantly white snow on the ground for Little Christmas. I never did switch over my accounting […]

Second Summer, Then Winter

19 November, 2016 Ken Everyday Life

People wearing shorts yesterday, snow tomorrow. About a month ago, the leaves finally turned and now they’re almost gone. Heating and cooling companies have noticed very little break between air conditioners and furnaces the last few years and when I asked a knowledgeable entymologist how long a trend that would be, she said it won’t be […]

To Have a Pet, or Not Have a Pet

27 September, 2016 Ken Everyday LifeFamily & Personal

I love animals. Part of me wants to take most of the ones I see home, cuddle with them, love them. But the reality is different. First, I never liked caged pets. Logically I understand that most of them don’t mind and feel safe in a limited space, being well cared for otherwise. But eventually they die and […]

The Year is Dead; Long Live the Year

18 February, 2016 Ken Business & WorkChroniclesEveryday Life

For me, I’m not sure when one year ends and another begins. It’s bad enough they often assign a Winter to the year it ends rather than beings, in spite of a Solstice (or Equinox) being in my own opinion the middle of that season and not it’s birth. Whatever. I usually end my personal year […]

Finally Snowing

28 December, 2015 Ken Everyday LifeFamily & Personal

It’s dark and the recycle truck is finally picking up. And it’s finally snowing — really snowing to where it doesn’t melt when it touches the ground. It’s felt like Mother nature hit the pause button for too long. It just didn’t feel right and I’ve been out of sorts. It’s been often warmer here […]
