Time and Times

Time and times are dictated by what you do and how you perceive the events that affect you.

Time accumulates, like water in a pond; then vanishes, evaporates, is absorbed or just used to irrigate some weed. You can use it while it’s there or take it for granted, but if you try to save it you’ll just find it gone when it’s needed most.

And now…making your Yamaha Bolt say “Oh Shit!” …or other bad and smartass things.

Stories, Wisdom and Bullshit from the Bin

Let us start by saying I have some more time freed to feed my soul and heal up a bit…a thing I discovered was sorely needed; since I’d ignored both for far too long. (Shocking to discover both a smile and a soul in the same week!)

Some Progress on New Weathermen and…

Without giving away too much, I’m going to be telling the story of one of the least mentioned, but most important, characters in Mr. Rain and The Weathermen. Unfortunately, it’s a really different perspective and very tricky story to tell without going all technical, geeky and “intense”.

Weary of being meat

That’s right. I’m weary of being meat.

Too damn long in a grinder. Too damn long feeling fibers pulverized and made shapeless. Give me grist and I will grind. Feed me bones.

Deep Thought

So, a guy walks into a bar and says to the bartender,

“The Universe wants a drink.”

The bartender looks at the man for a moment and asks,

“Okay. What does the Universe want?”

The man leans forward,

“You already know.”

Remembering Ice and Cold

Remembering Ice and Cold

If I look at measures, I think in winters. Not moons, suns, stars or the ticks on a ruler or those of a clock. I recollect by the numb freeze of fingers and ears. Heavy feet in boots. The rhythmic puff clouds huffed out in blue-grey morning light.

Living That Mobile Dream

Living That Mobile Dream

Living That Mobile Dream…

Is now 90% real. A couple of months ago Julie and I made the decision to live fully mobile. We’ve rented our home, bought our 5th wheel (and accompanying truck to pull the damn thing), and started cleaning out most of the things we own.

The Bus

The Bus

When the shit hits the fan (which it will, promise), it is so much easier to blame the contractors than it is for employees to take the blame…even if the shit is obviously theirs. So, as a contractor, you get very attuned to the approach of The Bus.
You hear it’s rumble.
You smell it’s exhaust, long before the actual bus appears.

The Failure of Analytics–Emotional Elections

The Failure of Analytics–Emotional Elections

THAT is why many people are waking up to a stark reality in America, and around the world as President-Elect Trump prepares to stroll into the White House. Emotion, not data, won the day.

Several months ago I stood in the dark parking lot of a closed gas station in small, south-central Utah town, filling a gas tank for that last stretch of a journey. Across the road an eighteen-wheeler pulled to a noisy stop and its driver climbed from the cab. He was proudly wearing a “Donald Trump for President” t-shirt.

It could have gone (should have gone) much faster, been a cleaner process, but I’m a hired gun; I’m working in a team that is very unfamiliar with one another, and not every piece of our source material was ready–hell, some of it didn’t even exist! But, that’s why I was brought in; I know this stuff from the general to the most technical and I can teach it all, to anyone. This is going to sound terribly arrogant, but I am one of the very few people in the world who can do this type of work, on this scale, in this scope…on a world-wide stage.
