Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there! I am not sure I can possible convey how much being a father means to me. It is the single-most important thing I’ve ever done; not t… Read More

I’ve talked about getting older a lot in this blog, perhaps too often for the likes of some. But the whole of this is to talk about the lessons of life as seen through an old codger su… Read More

We are all driven by something; there is a seed deep inside us – in our soul, in our heart, or in our spirit – that motivates our ideas, our thoughts, our words, our actions (and… Read More

Our weather continues its yo-yo pattern of warm then cold and back. It is currently 11AM and we have not yet hit 50-degrees outside. Even for New England, that is chilly. There is a promise… Read More

It’s been a busy, busy week! I finally completed my task to cut/split/hauled/cleared the ~18,000lbs of oak tree from the front yard. Yes – you read that right! A live oak weighs… Read More

Yes – I still exist, despite my disappearance from my blog! Life has been… busy, very busy, and I simply have not found a way to make time for writing. That’s especially t… Read More

The harkening of hope – of spring. There is the meteorological start of spring which begins on the first of March (for the ease of neatly bundling seasonal data) while the vernal equin… Read More
2022-03-13 17:56
This is becoming an all too familiar occurrence – another apology for the long span between posts. Quite honestly I am finding it difficult to make time to write. And when I do manage… Read More

I did it! I got out for a hike yesterday and it was glorious!! Not the perfect day, ideal weather, not by a long shot: it was fully overcast and gray. The temperatures were not bad for Febru… Read More

And suddenly I am older! Yes, I am acknowledging my birthday today, albeit somewhat begrudgingly. You look forward to them eagerly when you’re younger, accept them indifferently in you… Read More

Good morning dear reader! It is currently 7AM and I am squarely deep in the middle of a Nor’easter. Snow began around 10PM, but just lightly; however it steepened overnight. We now hav… Read More
2022-01-21 15:36
I’ve oft written of aging, at least my personal experience with it. And fittingly so because there are a litany of life lessons to be fathomed during the aging process. The funny thing… Read More

We are living in absolutely insane times dear reader! Unparalleled chaos and confusion as we enter our 3rd year with this pandemic; yes – 3rd year! There was wild and widespread fear t… Read More

And just like that, Christmas future has become Christmas past. Not truly literally, but figuratively in the blink of an eye. All the preparation, the anticipation, and the waiting… a… Read More
2021-12-24 18:37
It is Christmas Eve and all is not calm, not even remotely! But that isn’t a bad thing. Just about al the gifts are wrapped, but none are tagged. I absolutely suck at tagging gifts, mo… Read More

Christmas is now just two weeks away – hard to imagine! It seems like I was preparing for Halloween just yesterday. The sunset has reached its earliest time already and each sunset is… Read More

The vagaries of life constantly amaze me. The myth of self-control in your life (or any control at all) notwithstanding, our path throughout life oft times mimics an oak leaf in the late fal… Read More

Tornado clean-up complete and just in time as we are now staring Thanksgiving square in the face, ushered in with significantly colder temperatures. We’ve had our first frost, several… Read More

Halloween has come and gone – hard to believe it’s over already. It was a truly great month leading up to last night’s grand finale. Halloween night was wonderful (albeit s… Read More

2021-10-04 14:05
It has been a static period of late – no big events, no travels, and sadly, no hikes. My wife has been enjoying helping our daughter take care of her new baby – now 2 months old… Read More
2021-09-16 14:30
I have, for some reason, fallen into a bit of a rut. It can – it does – happen to all of us in life at some point or another; likely more than once in fact. Sometimes it is you a… Read More

This time of year always provides all the ingredients for a unique recipe of both anticipation as well as a mourning or melancholy. Summer is a season of celebration; it is soupy and sultry… Read More

After a pause in writing, I am back. In the interim we went through a hurricane scare: Henri was forecast to plow right up the bay through the middle of our little state. It ended up wobblin… Read More

Dear Reader – today I offer you a special treat. I was contacted by a reader who runs a website on the purpose of life. The website is the outcome of a spiritual journey of three frien… Read More

And suddenly it’s August. My but how time flies as your own time grows short. I’ve written on this several time including Temporal Tempest and The Velocity of Age. But much like… Read More
2021-07-25 16:50
I just read a fascinating article on Biocentrism which suggests that death doesn’t exist – at all. It is merely an idea, an adaptation of our conscious minds in an attempt to def… Read More

My daughter has just given birth to her first child – a boy – my fourth Wolff grand-cub. This is the culmination of years of trying to conceive and carry to term and a testimony… Read More

We managed two days of nice weather – high 70’s and even into the 80’s briefly – but today we are back to gray skies and rain; tomorrow likely as well. However, the w… Read More
2021-05-31 15:44
The weather has been…. atrocious; horrible; abysmal. Pick your adjective, it has been unpleasant. Gray, windy, cold, and rainy. Wind gusts have been into the 40’s and ironically… Read More
2021-05-25 18:23
Not a lot to report here, aside from the transition to some beautiful summer-like weather around here: a touch over 80dF today and likely the same tomorrow. The woods are flush with color on… Read More
2021-05-10 13:52
Another prolonged lapse in updating this blog. Although I’ve never really checked, I suspect this is a common trend for me in the warmer months as I spend far more time outside. And th… Read More

Been a few days since I’ve posted – apologies. I was notified the other day that there had been a fatal accident at work; and that it was an inspector. As you may know, I retired… Read More

Less than two hours to the big moment when the results are shared with me. I’ve been over and over the moment so many times now in my head – both ways, good news and bad news. I… Read More
2021-03-28 17:33
So – it is done. And, as is typical, was nowhere nearly as difficult as manifested by my mind. Pleasant? Not in a million years. Horrible? Not even close. I would rate the indignity of… Read More
2021-03-25 15:24
So….I guess I need to tell you that I am scared; OK, well maybe not scared, but certainly rattled. It appears that I simply cannot accept that I am now a few mere days from a biopsy t… Read More

So the fun continues for me dear reader; my second PSA came back equally as elevated so a biopsy it will be for me! Age – the gift that keeps on giving. I am not terribly surprised wit… Read More
2021-03-03 16:23
Some thoughts. I spend at least some time every single day wondering what is wrong with our country. Where did all the hate and intolerance come from? The divisiveness? The polar opposite en… Read More

Rough waters for me of late dear reader; medical “stuff” going on. I’ve been on the path of this particular “thing” for a while, but it was fairly easy walking… Read More

Some news dear reader, and it materialized on my birthday none the less! I have an appointment to be vaccinated one week from today. It will be the Pfizer vaccine, not that I really care too… Read More

While it is not quite yet my birthday, it probably will be by the time I finish this and get it posted. Hard to believe but this one is 65 – officially a senior citizen. It is bizarre… Read More

Winter has settled itself upon us like the darkness of a moonless night. The pond has a solid layer of ice, the tree limbs are all bowed with the weight of the snow on their branches, and th… Read More

What does it mean to live a successful life? Highly subjective question, so many possible answers: wealth, fame, respect, power, or any of dozens of other alternatives. But as you consider i… Read More

I warned you in my very first post (The First Step) that I had no idea where my ruminative roaming would lead. And for the better part of a year, many of my musings have been well off-course… Read More
2021-01-21 15:17
I have been sitting idle far too long over the last couple of weeks. And I don’t really get that since it has not been the brutally cold January as those in my past. I am used to singl… Read More

Like sands through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives. That was a famous opening line to a soap opera for Days of our Lives. I didn’t watch it, but I think everyone who had a… Read More

Preface: I actually wrote this post the morning of the election certification, with hope and optimism. Apparently I was misguided in that hope, as events so horrifically demonstrated. Don&rs&hell…Read More

I sit here, nearly midnight, still trying to understand and digest the horrific events of the day. As much as diligently work hard to avoid tuning in to news media, I found myself switching… Read More

We’ve had our first significant snowfall – around 6” I would estimate. There was some mixing with rain and sleet at one point which had two effects: it compressed the snow… Read More
