Christmas in July?

23 July, 2014 Ken Everyday LifeFamily & PersonalParkview

Last Sunday, I had a party, “Ken’s Summer Backyard Get-Together Luau Party Bash Shindig”. The description: “Kinda like Christmas in July, but the presents are food and good company. A holiday for framily, facebook friends, business associates, tai chi students, and wandering vagabonds. May involve extreme s’mores after sundown. Alcohol optional, kid-friendly, and games possibly.” […]

Dad Occupation: Not quite an exit strategy …

12 April, 2014 Ken Business & WorkFamily & Personal

My daughter asked me recently to take down an embarrassing part of my LinkedIn profile, now that she links to me as a professional herself: Dad Christina’s Family 1991 – Present (23 years) My most important job, and a priority ongoing project. I started out as a feeder, cuddler, diaper changer, burper, and did other […]

Yes, I’m Adjusting and I’m Trainable

15 June, 2013 Ken Everyday LifeFamily & PersonalWoodworking & Other Projects

I wrote about my one last visit to Christina at college a Saturday in April, but didn’t mention I especially liked picking up one of harmonicas lying around to collaborate in a random jam session with Christina and a friend. If I ever learn violin, Merry will demand a banjo and we’ll have plenty of […]

Graduation Day

18 May, 2013 Ken Business & WorkFamily & Personal

Christina graduates today, receiving a degree in English from SUNY Fredonia.  Not in a “couldn’t think of a major” sort of English, but “I’m going to copy edit the h3ll out of the universe and no one will stop me” kinda way. Oddly, it doesn’t feel like forever ago or yesterday that she came into […]

A Spiritual Spring

29 April, 2013 Ken Family & PersonalReligion & Spirituality

During a fit of meditation, I reached out psychically to a friend I haven’t spoken to in a while, but felt recoiled, rejected, until a warm feeling a few days later, as if to apologize. I miss them and sometimes have a strong empathic connection, but in some ways am more comfortable at a distance. […]

(Not) The Last Year

22 December, 2012 Ken Business & WorkEveryday LifeFamily & PersonalParkview

The Mayans didn’t see it coming, and neither did I. I had a mid-life crisis (sort of, I think), and a record year in Kentropolis. I have a phone that is practically a tri-corder, a new kitten (very possibly the cutest in the world, and the reincarnation of LadyBug), and wearing a tuxedo on a […]

Too Many Commitments?

16 June, 2012 Ken Everyday LifeFamily & PersonalParkviewWoodworking & Other Projects

Now might not have been the best time to start a block club.  I already accepted the position of Tyler at the Lodge, and although it does not involve duties beyond being a doorman at meetings, it further ensures I must be there at nearly all functions.  AND I now belong to the Order of […]

What’s been going on? Nothing much? Much.

16 June, 2012 Ken Everyday LifeFamily & Personal

When people ask what I’ve been up to, I sometimes have the knee-jerk response of “nothing much” or “I’ve been busy” but neither describes this year. There are just so many different things going on. They shot my (three) scenes for a new movie I’ll be starring in called “Brandonwood”, a full-length drama that at […]

Not Quite a Spring

9 April, 2012 Ken Everyday LifeFamily & Personal

I hear the sound of lawn mowers, interspersed with the silence of snow, putting on a scarf to scurry beneath the blazing sun, birds chirping but bitter wind blowing.  The color is heavy green without the accompanying smells of what nature intimates to be the season.  And I do not know if I really want to be […]

A Little Visitor

24 February, 2012 Ken Family & Personal

A client at the vet hospital, someone who devoutly cared for her own animals, finds a teacup poodle in the middle of the street, so dehydrated and hypothermic it was unable to do more than twitch in an effort to avoid oncoming cars.  She scooped him up and brought him in, willing to pay for […]
