… stories worth telling

Lean back a second. Look around. Yep, these are stories …stories about things that really happened, too (see the drop-down list under nonfiction).  Nope, they’re not just a bunch of picture post cards!

Sometimes journeys chosen take us down unintended alleys, or usher us into and through some gasps and surprises never predicted. Linger a bit. Better yet, check out dropdown choices (upper right) for specific stories, and pick and choose, or jump around … but have a good time.

There lots of places to look around right here–check out the pull-down menus for specific venues and genres. There’s travel, Vietnam, business, and a few other odd places to explore. Pick one. Probe around. Comments welcome.


From here on down to the bottom of this page, I just am letting my mind wander about some of the things I wonder about. If you have time, these set the stage. If you don’t have time, slide the menu choices down and peruse. Linger a little longer. Enjoy your journey.


If one is curious, if one is willing to turn another page in that book (y’know, the thick one with that ambiguous title), if one can justify a few meaningful risks that might not ordinarily be considered …well, just maybe that person might then have a few worthy events to share with others too. But, just because some can find ways to use those ingredients on our own shelf of life’s experiences, we wonder whether if it’s worthy meal for more than one to savor.



So much of my particular story begins as a young adult …as it usually does for most of us. Then we make a choice, prepared or not. In the book Just Dust (for more information about this book, go to Amazon.com), I describe how I went through the dichotomy of choice and consequence, over and over. It’s an introspective recounting that those who were in Vietnam will immediately relate to. For those who know someone who endured similar experiences, it may also help them to understand these events with greater insight. Examine some of the blogs for a few of those insights.

For just as many introspections as there may be, there are many unusual experiences and observations as well …surprises, realizations, and many “I get it!” moments that young men encounter along the way. It’s a wad of stuff. Join me for a picnic of some unanticipated adventure.
