Comic-Con: 21 Years Ago …

There is no live San Diego Comic-Con this year, and by “live” I mean that living, breathing organism that seems to mystically appear inside the San Diego Convention Center, transforming it into a whole new city by the bay for four and a half days. There is an online component again this year, with some... Continue Reading →

Be True …

I've taken a couple of weeks off from this here blog thingy to do some housekeeping chores and to think a bit on what's next for me and this endeavor. I have discovered that I do like writing again and want to focus on that aspect of the blog, and less a record of all... Continue Reading →

California Redux …

I posted a similar photo to this one a while back (click here to see it). There is nothing more quintessential to me than a Volkswagen van, and Coronado, where I live, has numerous vans dotting the street.

To be honest, this photo was taken back in January of this year, when all the right atmospheric conditions combined to reveal this spectacular sunset. This photo also reminds... Continue Reading →

Some Thoughts on Traveling Again …

I took a trip last week, my first since November 2019. It was just a short up-and-back, three-day trip to Seattle, one of my favorite cities, but a trip nonetheless. I called it my “training-wheel trip,” just a quick jaunt to see what travel felt like in this new world. And make no mistake about... Continue Reading →

An Evening with Groucho …
