new fantasyland and wordy mcwordword

This should be two posts, but I went to Florida where it’s summer and then returned home where it’s fall and now I can’t stop sneezing. Achoo! Business first, then fun – like an Internet mullet. In Palmetto Parent’s October issue, I have lots of words, including some I am especially proud of about some […]

robots with a strings section

Some of the work I do is very detailed and requires a level of focus that can only come with strong coffee and a sweeping orchestral score drowning out the rest of the world. If that score evokes thoughts of robots and space battles, all the better. Even if you don’t like sci fi (Really? […]

prematurity awareness day

(Great information below, but there are some sick little ones in this video. FYI.) I have been privileged to help tell the stories of several families whose babies were born far too soon. The March of Dimes has made dramatic steps in saving these babies. (Surfactant, which helps tiny underdeveloped lungs inflate, is probably the […]

prepare for the beginning, and other miscellany

My fellow geeks, run, don’t walk, to see the new Star Trek movie trailers. This makes “Heroes” tolerable again. Yatta! While you’re surfing, my column on turning the big 4-0 is out in this month’s Upstate Parent (and others, but this link is to Upstate). Also, if you’re on Facebook, Upstate Parent has a fan […]

assisting with today’s endeavors

Uhura, Chief Communications Officer. Please direct any phone calls to her. Thanks. (If only…)

probably not the best month for this story

Or maybe it is. It’s no secret that January is my least favorite month of the year. I am sure I have SAD some years, which sometimes makes me sad, so I combat the short, cold days with seed catalogs, vacation planning and baking. I know. You probably think fresh air and exercise would be […]
