In the summer of 2010, I had the amazing opportunity to guest lecture at Worcester College at Oxford University in the United Kingdom as part Georgia Tech’s Study Abroad Program. On my off day, I went with fellow teachers Karen Head and Colin Potts to see the Sally Mann exhibition at The...

“Change your city, change your luck.”  It is a Jewish saying, my osteopath told me. In a Russian fairy tale, the Tzar bids his sons go into an open field with their bows and arrows, and aim into the air.  Where their arrows land, there lie their fortunes. In my case, I wrote the names of...

Had to take the car to the body shop yesterday. On the way back I stopped at new supermarket over towards Mountain View (Google HQ) with a great cheese counter and an amazing array of fruit and vegetables including a dozen--maybe more--kinds of fresh mushrooms, jumbo, tiny, separate and big enough...

Is it my imagination or did 2012 go by in a blink? Personally, it's been an amazing year. My second novel, Remain In Light, has been well-received, I self-published an ebook of short stories, Kiss Shot, and finalized the manuscript for my next poetry collection, Render, coming in...

What better way to end one year (or begin a New Year) than ... drinking? Of course authors drink. It calms them down after telling all those stories. Or it gets them in the mood to tell all those stories. Or it helps oil the passageway whilst telling all those stories. As you see, it is...

I like still days, like yesterday in London. They creep up on you softly and, suddenly, you walk out of the house and find yourself in the midst of one.  Early winter days, when the sky is a grey so pale, it is almost white.  Not a breath of wind to stir the few fiery leaves left on the...

One somber afternoon, authentic as a film, the London street vendors charmed us with chestnuts.   Fragrant, hot, cracking in their glossy hulls, they were only half a crown. We bought two paper cones.   Under the foggy yellow circles of legendary streetlamps, pigeons gathered hopefully....

“Thank you for flying.”The silver-haired, Mt. Rushmore-profiled airplane captain walked among the few dozen of us in the SFO departure lounge.  It was one week after 9/11.  The world was still numb from the horror.  After days of no flights at all, planes were starting to move, but...

I spent 3 months in Paris, a year ago, December thru February.  Paris celebrated with a Buffalo (NY) size snowstorm.  I learned Paris, in snow, is extremely photogenic.  London on the other hand, is uglier, and unable to cope. I started to wander the 7th arrondisment, in the snow....

A few minutes ago I was chatting on the phone with my best friend welcoming him home from his latest trip to the UK.  Edinburgh is all torn up.  York is attempting to rise above this year’s high tides and pelting rains.  Railroad tracks everywhere are torn up.  Parts of London...
