I love bras. Women wearing them. It seems weird, perhaps, when I've spent half my adult life (all of it?) trying to get them off. But the fact is, in many ways I prefer them on, not off. I'll try to explain. But this is a very metaphysical subject with great existential challenges. I see a...

I've had blog sites in the past, but it's been awhile. Life got in the way, and I became a lapsed blogger. I'm slowly coming back. It's something like regaining your faith, it takes time and effort as well as strengthening your belief that there is someone out there who cares what you have to say....

Looking at these pictures, they are the ships of summer to me, superb in the port and gone too soon.  The tall ships came to our Duluth harbor for the last weekend of July.  They were going to parade in Thursday at about two in the afternoon.  So I posted my ebay packages downtown at...
