Update from Danny

Yesterday, on Facebook, I announced that I would not be on social media or writing on this site for a few weeks due to health problems. But I should have also posted something here, on my website, because I have more readers than friends on Facebook. I will not elaborate on the nature of my… Continue reading Update from Danny

My Family’s Early Years on Video

Little Danny (1952)

In 2001, several months after my dad’s passing, I had a VHS tape made up of the many super 8 mm film reels that my parents took of our family during the 1956-64 era. Yesterday, I had the tape converted to a digital file, and I am watching the video as I write this short… Continue reading My Family’s Early Years on Video

Little White Lies

The Oxford Dictionary defines a ‘white lie’ as: a harmless or trivial lie, especially one told to avoid hurting someone’s feelings. “when I was young, I told little white lies“ Although my stories are all based on the truth, some require a little white lie(s) to avoid embarrassing or hurting another person’s feelings. And sometimes, that… Continue reading Little White Lies

My Last Blind Date

On April 20, 2021, I decided to find another dream to chase at Tiffany’s store in Vancouver. Readers of this site may recall my My Holly Golightly and Audrey Hepburn story, which I wrote in 2008 and later updated in 2012. It might surprise you to learn that I have continued to dream about Audrey… Continue reading Dream Catcher

A Memory Scan

You probably wonder where I have been for the past few weeks and what I have been doing. Answer:  Scanning hundreds of photographs from albums. Recently, I purchased a new printer/scanner, and I am sorting and then scanning each of the photos – one by one, to create a digital library of photos (by category).… Continue reading A Memory Scan

Seagulls, Beer, and Sparkplugs

Danny (1976) at the cottage

One of the first things I heard when I went outside this morning was the screeching sound of seagulls flying overhead and the smell of the ocean. In fact, it is what I see and feel every time I go outside of my new digs in White Rock. I sound like a person who has… Continue reading Seagulls, Beer, and Sparkplugs

Yesterday

I awoke up at 3:00 am yesterday and was as excited as a kid in a candy store with empty pockets and no money! But I could not understand why I felt so down. I usually am up between 3:45 and 4:30 am – which may seem too early for most – but I go… Continue reading Yesterday
