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

Three Shiny Marbles

This morning, while listening to an audiobook by Anita Moorjani, I took a break and did a tour of one of my favorite Facebook Groups (Empath Wellbeing Protocol) and read a comment about three red marbles by Brad Parker that brought tears to my eyes. Here is what Brad wrote: I was at the corner… Continue reading Three Shiny Marbles

Doctors, Dogs, and Veterinarians

And sometimes, that… Continue reading Little White Lies

Karma

At Connie's memorial a few days ago

I have always believed in the principle of Karma. It is defined in Wikipedia by the intent and actions of an individual (cause) to influence the future of that individual (effect). Most major religions have karma in their doctrines, i.e., heaven and hell and reincarnation. But I don’t always agree that individuals deserve what they… Continue reading Karma

My Last Blind Date

Recently, I wrote an almost true story about meeting a new love I had first seen as a vision at the Tiffany store in Vancouver. I have always associated Tiffany’s with love and romance, so when I first felt the rush of excitement from her email message, I over-reacted in a way only a hopeless… Continue reading My Last Blind Date

Dream Catcher

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
