Do you have a special place to write?  Do you have a special routine to prepare yourself for writing?  How does your space affect your writing?  These and more questions have been buzzing around in my head.  I know the answers for myself but I wondered about other writers....

Some days, it doesn't pay to get out of bed.  I used to hear that a lot and I always wondered if it were true.  It might be age, it might be the season, being pre-Spring and all, and it just might be my irritating sunny disposition, but I think life pays to get out of bed even if you...

Photos: Three out of about a dozen I took at Fenway, August 7, 2012.  Fenway's always beautiful.   I know this isn't my sports blog, but I haven't written there in awhile, and this is a very important issue, as it pertains not just to this sports team, but in many ways to our reality...

My office moved again today. Only about 14 months after the last move to rented auxillary space, we're back at the main office - shoved in among the other departments.
