I'm laughing at myself at the moment.  I'm fond of multi-tasking.  I have twelve tabs open on my personal computer.  This tab, to add this post, increases it to thirteen tabs.  Of those other twelve, one is gmail and two others are tabs with Red Room posts to read.  Of the...

September 9     Barnum, Bailey & Me   When I wake to find a whip and a chair by the side of my bed I know I am in for a circus of a day and the tears of this clown will not change a thing.  I ready myself for the tightrope walk and watch out for stray elephants.  All...

August 19     Endlessly Moving Maps   I try to survive by memorizing the chaos.  I do well up to five layers deep and then lose it, as the details become too great.  I am staking my life on my ability to track the patterns in a storm while at the same time treading water....
