The last couple weeks I’ve though about the immense writers block that’s hit me like a ton of bricks over the last few years. Reasons Include: New Friends – I have to laugh at the old guard that still cling to the mechanics of the tools in regard to the answer, and look with intrigue […]

You chased the sun around the Cote d’Azur, Until the light of youth became obscured, and left you on your own and in the shade August 16, 2011 No Comments

Making a blanket generalization it seems as if everytime I try to capture the spirit of Europe in a song it meanders back to A Lady of a Certain Age.  Seems as if Europe is way ahead when it comes to a balanced and integrated approach to life, a feeling and a history that’s too […]

A Turkish ship runs and Israeli blockade, and there’s nothing the United States can do about it…..Interesting implications here, an event that merits rewriting 85% of America’s foreign policy in the middle east. I can’t articulate as well as Stratfor, but I can attempt to understand.  Most folks would look at this through a political […]

Today I accepted a job on the other side of the Alps in Stuttgart and as the I’s are dotted and the T’s are crossed the day will come soon when yet a new adventure begins. Why only six months in Italy? As the tune ‘Charmed Life‘ says, take your chances and ride your luck […]

There’s a quote out there somewhere that says imagination is a wonderful thing, it gives you a picture of where you’re going in life.  I have to pick up more fiction, I often feel the more I listen to the clutter around me in the atmosphere, […]

Through the rubble of the bombed out streets, Through the squalor and the poverty, Walks a proud Neapolitan girl October 1, 2010 No Comments

The tune Neapolitan Girl describes the life of a gal in Italy during WW2. Bombed out streets, not caring about what’s right or wrong, just survival was key.  The video of the stunning imagery around Naples set to the tune can’t even being to describe what it was like a generation or so ago when […]
