The forecast in Denver Today: Light Snow with 0in of possible accumulation - WRONG!
My second day back in Denver is a snowy one and that has not stopped the Hipster invasion from my local happy place: CREMA COFFEE HOUSE
I have recently had the great fortune of a growing readership with special thanks to the amazing and prolific Lesley Carter and her World-Class Blog: Indulge – Travel, Adventure, & New Experiences. Lesley has built a following with her adventurous life and excellent blog that is nothing short of remarkable. I rarely envy anyone or anything, I envy this woman's passion and discipline.
As many of your reading are new to me, I thought I would share some randomly chosen thoughts and observations to give you insight into my writing and personality. I will couple this with photos from today's 0 inches of snow.
I lived in a town of 500 people till I was 12 - It is called Bristol and it is where I began making stories I still tell
I traveled to Italy 20 years ago this year and I have been hooked on the boot ever since.
I heard a hipster tell another hipster this morning "I told him he was going to have to talk to my lawyer" What does the lawyer ask in payment to be on hipster retainer? A crocheted backless t-shirt? Some skinny jeans with uneven cuffs? A surly use of mislabeled irony?
Many of my friends and family members have new babies. I am often asked to come over and meet the baby. Does an adult really meet a baby? I think we can see a baby, hold a baby, even attempt to talk at the infant; however, I would not go so far as saying we meet a baby. The baby cannot shake my hand or offer a salutary wish. I cannot ask the baby what he does or where he is from without appearing foolish. The baby will not remember me tomorrow. I think meet is not the appropriate term. I don't think anyone in 1957 asked people to come meet the baby. I don't think the 3 wise men met Jesus. They may have worshiped him, but when one of them encountered JC in the streets of Damascus some years later and asked: "don't you remember me Jesus?" Jesus said, "of course I do, because I am the son of God, a normal kid would not have the same recollection." Please don't take this badly new parents. I really like to see your children, I just won't meet them till they reach the age of memory.
My first thought when I wake in the morning is: What can I eat?
My last thought when I go to bed each night: I wonder what I will eat tomorrow?
I judge myself much harder than I judge others and I judge the shit out of others.
I would sell my first-born to Somali pirates for enough lifetime flight miles
I try to avoid shitting in public bathrooms to an almost self-subversive level. I really need silence and classical literature to take a proper duke.
I feel dead to myself and the world when I am not traveling or at least planning to travel
I will not get on a plane without my wife and have no interest in travel without her. I did not get married to live a separate life and her presence brings me solace that no SRI ever could.
I graduated college sometime between 1995 and 1997 as I am not sure when all my outstanding credits and bills were paid at my very good if very expensive university - I was scheduled to graduate in 1993
I have a love/hate relationship with crowds. I hate to be part of one and I love to be in front of one.
One of my favorite streets
I love to be liked and yet I am not great at keeping my polarizing opinions to myself
More fun to come and thanks for tuning in to this cable access thrill ride.
