Off the cuff: A bird in the face is worth my two cents

During a trip to Tampa taken earlier this year, which I mentioned in post way back when, I went with my sister and nephew to a mediocre, overpriced sea food restaurant called Whiskey Joe’s. The main reason my sister took us there was that is was a gorgeous day to be sitting on a deck […]

Vermon: Contradictions and thinking

A little early morning babbling.

Meanderer’s Musings: Praise Talking Walk

The last time I seriously tried to write The Daily Dose of the Good (and Not So Good) Words each and every day, I came up with the idea of writing “off the cuff.” Off the Cuff pieces were supposed to be short so they wouldn’t take so much time. Most doses take me four […]

Off the cuff: Live long and prosper

Off the cuff: A matter of time

Tonight, The- sing it with me Judy Garland style, “Someday over the rainbow, some day soon”- Daily Dose of the Good (and Not So Good) Words is about time. As in time in a bottle, time won’t let me, time is on my side, time keeps on slipping, slipping, slipping into the future, time is […]

Off the cuff: Kaddish

Now some of my faithful readers might think an off the cuff Dose of the Good (and Not So Good) Words about Kaddish lacks a necessary sense of gravity. But the truth of the matter is that some things are so awe-ful that even dump truck load of words cannot capture them. Death by suicide […]
