As far back as I can remember books have been an integral part of my life. I love to read. It really got going in my late teens. I became a big fan of Henry Miller, Carlos Castaneda, Kurt Vonnegut, Ken Follett, John le Carré, J.R.R. Tolkien, Tom Robbins, Castaneda and I loved biographies and auto...

Yesterday on my way home the afternoon sun is waning and the shadows are growing long. I stopped for a few groceries when I spotted this VW Bug in the Safeway parking lot. My first car was a 1966 bug and it still ranks right up near the top of my favorite cars. It was just so much fun to drive. I...

I’m getting a couple of old PC’s out of the closet and ready for recycle. I took a look through the hard drives for anything I might want to keep before I nuke them.  I found a PowerPoint slideshow I used in 2006 as a backdrop for some of the social media talks I did traveling around Oregon. Goin...

My heart sank when I heard the news that Renton Western Wear was closing its doors. It caught me off guard. After all, since the first of the year it seems like all I hear is good news about our recovering real estate market, job growth, and the economy. Yet, last week driving through downtown wa...

My Uncle Pete Delaurenti was the kind of guy every kid would love to have as an uncle. A tad eccentric, self-taught, creative, a musician, and almost always cheerful with a warm smile, he was one of the family’s entrepreneurs. Delaurenti Music Store was in the front half of his home on Rainier Av...

Buyer's remorse - what is it? Have you ever experienced it? Have you have decided to sell/buy your home and relocate to a larger home? Smaller home? Assisted living facility? No matter your individual circumstances there is a high possibility that at some point during this transition you will ex...

I caught myself the other day impatiently waiting for the next age. You know, the one after this one. “That’s interesting,” I thought to myself, and a bit ironic given the fact that I go through most days scrambling to get through that ‘so much to do in so little time’. Technology had me in its g...

I’m a fan of Gary Vaynerchuk... and I credit the title of this post to him. It’s a line he uses in many of his talks when he’s making points on being asked about (or confronted with) the ROI of social media. Gary’s a ‘take no prisoners’ kind of guy and I love watching his YouTube videos. I can re...

Where Do You Like To Write And Why? Creative juices are funny things. Sometimes they flow so fast it's almost impossible to keep up and get it all down on paper before a thought vanishes. Other times they are elusive. One thing that helps is a "place" that is conducive to writing and this can var...

How do you explain it when others are able to achieve things that seem to defy all the assumptions? I watched this TEDx talk last month that’s really got me thinking about my creative work processes. In this video Simon Sinek discusses concepts from his book, Start With Why: How Great Leaders Ins...

What Would You Regret The Most IF??  If a person in your life died today, what would you regret most that you hadn't done?  Have you ever thought about this? Granted it isn't something most of us would choose to think about, since, with the exception of very old or the very very ill,  we choose n...

The holidays bring up a lot of wonderful memories... and they include a few ghosts from Christmas past. Not to dwell on anything dark a few days just before Christmas but I was thinking of my Dad this day. Funny how you do that as time goes by. He’s been gone now since November of 1998. It struck...

I was reminded the other day of my first truck. It was a 1951 ¾ ton white Chevy panel. I bought it from the Orting Fire Department in 1967. They retired this big old fire rescue truck with its 4 speed long throw floor shifter with compound low, 17 inch wheels, a 92 hp inline 6 cylinder engine and...

In my box of old family treasures I found this Christmas Card. It was sent to my Grandpa George from his niece Julie in 1964. Though at first look it appears to be 3D, it’s actually a photograph of a handmade card. Pretty cool for 1964. Santa’s beard, coat trim, and the snow are obviously made of...

Dang it! I did it again! As is often I’m on the run when I hear the sound of those jungle drums going off in my shirt pocket. It’s one of my tribe, they need me now! My adrenaline rushes, reflex takes over. Briefcase in my right hand I snap with my left... I’m one iPhone slinging 4s digital cowbo...

One of the things I enjoy during the Holiday Season is getting out the old box of decorations to revisit those little treasures from yesteryear. Like the tree ornament my brother Terry made back in grade school out of Plaster of Paris. It weighs over a pound and would bend the branch so far you f...

I picked up the guitar when I was 13 years old. The British Invasion had just begun and I knew there was no way I’d ever become a rock n roll star playing an accordion or french horn. I spent hours and hours listening to 45 records and strumming along to learn the tunes. After I got past the 3 ch...
