As I lay on my back, staring at the ceiling, gulping air, eagerly awaiting my next breath, feeling my heart beat in my chest, watching the dust motes float through the air, inhaling a few hundred of them, I thought: Geez! This is only 20 minutes into the warm up!!! The floor feels good. Cool. Firm. Not moving. May the nausea continue to stay a bat. Breathe! Breathe! Certainly, I did not feel alone. All across the room, giant lung-fulls…

Well, as you know, I try a number of things. Why not, life is short. So, now I need to find another guitar teacher in due course. I want/need something physical, though. I don’t remember when I first saw Tai Chi, but when I saw it, I thought that it might be for me. It looked peaceful. On Tuesday, I visited The Peaceful Dragon in Charlotte, NC. I had looked at it just before I went to Charleston. While I…

If you’ve ever looked at the insert on an album or perhaps the acknowledgements in a book, you’ll see that the artists always thank a multitude of people. I’d always taken that for granted … sure, there were people in the background. Today, Wednesday, March 17th, 2010 is my last day with SAIC. As I go to close this chapter of the book that is my life, I want to say thanks to a lot of people who I’ve met…

Though I did not brave the icy streets in my car, like my friend Earl did on his Winter Tour; I don’t have a four-wheel drive. I did go for a walk this morning with Hobbs, of course. The temperature was about 15° F, but the sun was shining brightly. I did have fun watching Hobbs slip and slide on the ice. I saw him take several nose-first dives to the ice. He’s short, so not to far to go…

In his post, I can dream, can’t I?, Paul Maxim was lamenting the cold weather and subsequent photos posted on various blogs of cold, snowy places. He posted a beautiful shot of Middleton Place, one of the tourist areas in the Charleston area. A place that I’ve never been. So, I just thought that I post a nice shot of the Ashley River that I took the other day. There is no snow. Mind you, the wind was blowing and…

Nope! It’s still free! I’ve mentioned before that I have a Google Analytics account. For the most part, I ignore it. There are times when I’m curious about what has happened over the last X period of time. I think that it is rather natural to have a look back at the previous year and see how things looked. As I’ve been running Google Analytics for about 2 years, I had something to compare. I compared 2009 to 2008 and…
