Success Breeds Failure

I'm a glass-half-full kind of guy.  That's why I think success breeds failure.  Hold on.  Give me a chance. Intuitively, failure breeds success.  As you fail, you learn what doesn't work.  And then you try something else until you succeed.  Right, Thomas Edison? Some would even argue that success breeds…

Curse of Sagittarius

"You're in my spot." "I'm what?" "You're in my spot." "I don't understand." "That is my spot.  And you're in it." "There are plenty of spots here." "But that one is mine." "So what." "So you need to move.  Now." "Whatever.  Take your spot if it makes you happy." "Thank…

Truth Be Told

The pictures are like windows to the past. Highlighting the rosier moments. The viewer only depicts the emotions that the camera interprets. Each smile leaves a scar, a burn ...a mark of distinction. It taints the past and predestines the future. Only time can heal these wounds. Yet my clock…

Meh

Meh. What do you want to do today?  Meh. Wanna go for a walk?  Meh. What do you want to eat for dinner?  Meh. It has been one of those weeks.  Meh. I wrote words but only felt meh.  I walked miles but only felt meh.  I ate meals but…

The Pursuit of Crappyness

Four decades.  Four decades and several years.  That's a lot of crap. No, no, I'm not talking about crap.  I'm talking about CRAP. If I were a football player, the name on the back of my jersey would be CRAP.  If I were a bagel shop, the name on the…

The Few, the Proud, the Quirky?

We embrace the strange.  We explore the underbelly.  We accept derision. The creative life is a peculiar one.  People need artists to color the palette of life and brush away the grays.  To oppose conformity and strike down conventions.  To live vicariously in danger against the backdrop of sterility and…

Embracing the Darkness

This is the time of year when I can get a lot of work done. The longer nights and shorter days are a perfect prescription for hunkering down - focusing on reading and writing. So many stories are swirling in my head.  Where do I start?  Which one gets top…

The Best of 2015

As the year draws to a close, I must reveal the winners of my Top Reads for 2015, or as I affectionately coined them, "The Boodies."  The music industry has the Grammy's.  Broadway has the Tony's.  ESPN has the ESPY's.  And Chuck Buda has the Boodies.  The Boodies are awarded…
