Every Day Is An Opportunity To Learn Something New

Every Day Is An Opportunity To Learn Something New

Every day is not only a gift but as far as I'm concerned, another day filled with plenty of opportunities to learn something new.  When I wake every morning and figure out what I want to do, or shall I say, accomplish that day, in the back of my mind I'm also thinking about what I want to learn on that day. What I learn gets written in my notebook, things I consider interesting get photographed, and locations geotagged and mapped accordingly.  I use my blog/website to keep it all together and share it with the world. Not that long ago, I published a book of poetry and sold a handful of copies;...

When I Write

Every day is not only a gift but as far as I'm concerned, another day filled with plenty of opportunities to learn something new.  When I wake very morning and figure out what I want to do, or shall I say; accomplish that day, in the back of my mind I'm also thinking about what I want to learn on that day. When I learn gets written in my notebook, things I see that I consider interesting get photographed, and locations geotagged and mapped accordingly.  I use my blog/website to keep it all together and share it with the world.

My Head Is Full Of Questions

My Head Is Full Of Questions

It has always been my nature to question things, but lately I've been questioning everything. After the shootings in Binghamton, NY on April 4, 2009, I've become excessively aware of my surroundings as well as keeping a close eye on those around me. I blame the media coverage for turning the United States into a state of paranoia where everyone carries a cell phone with 911 on speed-dial ready to call when they think that there might be an emergency. Truth is, most of the time, there isn't one. Freedom? So I ask myself, is this freedom? Is worrying about who is going to be the next person...

A Philosophical Look At The True Value Of A Job

A Philosophical Look At The True Value Of A Job

While talking to my father yesterday, I was inspired to write about how in modern society we are paid solely for the amount of experience and education we have when we should be paid according to our contribution to society itself. My father brought up a good point when he said that despite my talents, creativity, and experience, nobody has ever given me a chance to shine at any job I have ever had. Take for example, if you were a world-renowned doctor.  Although doctors are paid well in the United States, in other countries, they are not.  However, without doctors, we would have overwhelming...

The End Of An Era For Film, Newspapers, And Things I Remember?

The End Of An Era For Film, Newspapers, And Things I Remember?

Recently, Carmi Levi posted an article about how printed newspapers are soon going to become a thing of the past. Sadly, having grown up in New York City, and buying the Sunday New York Times for my dad at the local corner store might some day be a memory I will someday, years from now, share with disbelieving children who may grow up in a world where newspapers no longer exist. Since the advent of the digital era, whose catalyst was the Internet, I've seen a lot of things disappear. Several years ago, cassette tapes began to fade as CD's became easier to manufacture and more popular. Along...

Rochester had a warm day for the first time since I arrived last week.  It reminds me that spring time is on the way and hopefully will be here soon.  As soon as the snow starts melting and I know it's time to start making plans for the spring and summer months.  This year I've decided that I'm going to keep better records of my outdoor pursuits using my GPS along with writing and taking photos, then using my WordPress setup to merge all this data into something useful. Nothing is more heartbreaking then to come across something amazing out in the wilderness and not being able to find...

I Am A Writer!

I Am A Writer!

I consider myself a writer because I love to create written documentation of any kind. The best decision I ever made to further my career in writing was to start a blog.  Blogs are perfect for creating, sharing, and archiving documentation of all kinds.  A problem I faced recently was a crashed database that took with it a small handful of works in which my only copy was stored within the database itself. Thankfully, all but 4 or 5 pieces were lost, but I'm almost positive I have a backup copy laying around somewhere.  Technology is great but it also a medium that, like everything else...
