i am a (midlife) fool, plain and simple.

So on April Fool’s Day 2009, i began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs as part of a self-imposed 100-day writer’s bootcamp.

On day 101, i had the guilt-free option to stop.

i didn’t.

And havn’t missed a single day.


At a loss to explain why, except maybe this, it has profoundly changed me.

This train of thought continues with “i am unhealthy” at the next Blog

Mid Life Tuesday

Mid Life Tuesday. Two-fer Tuesday.

During my college years 1977 – 1983, there was a classic rock station in Philadelphia, WMMR 93.3. Zeppelin, The Who, Doors, Rolling Stones, Eagles, Lynyrd Skynyrd, ZZ Top, AC/DC, Aerosmith, Genesis, Foghat, CCR, BTO, ELO, REO, Bad Company, Black Sabbath – you get the picture.

Tuesdays were a double shot, or two songs by the same artist for the price of one. Here ya go, two-fer Tuesday:

“One’s action ought to come out of an achieved stillness; not a mere rushing on”. — D. H. Lawrence

“I think in every country that there is at least one executive who is scared of going crazy”. — Joseph Heller

Makes me wonder,  “How many people are walking around, just a few steps away from a meltdown”?

If we can’t learn to be still, we can’t heal ourselves from the mid life crisis that leads to going crazy.

If not today, when? If not this week, when? If not this month, when? This year? Then when?
