Want, Wanted, and Wanting

There are three wants in life: want wanted and wanting.  But you already knew that – so let me explain why I am writing a post about them. Want When you need something – it is a want.  It does not matter what it costs, and it does not matter if you can afford to buy it… Continue reading Want, Wanted, and Wanting

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

Soul Medicine

This morning, I got an email from my buddy Robert.  It contained an animal video that absolutely surprised and delighted me. At first, I thought about sharing the video with my friends by email or social media.  But I wanted to share the video with a larger audience:  with you, my readers. After I viewed… Continue reading Soul Medicine

A Last Goodbye

In February 2018, I wrote my Chasing a Dream story. In the story, I announced that I was separated from my wife Annette, after over forty years of being together. I do not like writing about very personal issues, especially because Annette is a very private person. However, we decided to stay in the home… Continue reading A Last Goodbye

A Hasty Retreat

Rivendell Retreat on Bowen Island, BC

Today, I am leaving for three days of quiet and solitude at a spiritual retreat on a nearby Bowen Island mountain top. Although I no longer search for answers to questions that evaded me for most of my life – my spiritual growth and well-being have always been important. The retreat will allow me to… Continue reading A Hasty Retreat

A Coffee Break

I have always loved waking up to the smell of freshly-brewed coffee in the morning. And there is always an energy boost from the caffeine to kick start my day. It leaves me with the feeling that an extraordinary person has just hugged me – and that makes me smile because I know it is… Continue reading A Coffee Break

A Short Straw

Danny (1976) at the cottage

This morning, I was running errands around town.  And at each store, when approaching the cashier, I offered the following comment: Looks like you pulled the short straw! And each time I mentioned it, I got a puzzled look in reply. It was as though the cashiers (male and female) didn’t understand what I meant.… Continue reading A Short Straw

A Nude Wreck on Wreck Beach

August 10, 2020 at Wreck Beach

August 10, 2020 I hope you aren’t offended by my photo. I spent the day, sunbathing in the nude for the first time in my life at the world-famous Wreck Beach in Vancouver, BC. But I wasn’t alone – there were several hundred sun worshippers of all ages, scattered along the 7.8 km beach. I’m… Continue reading A Nude Wreck on Wreck Beach

The Last Word

Danny 1967-68

Last month, I decided not to renew my website, when it expires at the end of June.  So, I began to create a list of my 200+ published stories to share with you, in case there were any that you may not have read. However, I received a lot of emails and comments – asking… Continue reading The Last Word

Dear Uncle Sam

Although I haven’t been watching the news for a couple of months, I decided to watch a coronavirus update on television.  I was alarmed at how quickly the virus is spreading and the number of people who’ve died already in Europe, China, and the USA. On Friday alone, more than 400 people passed in the… Continue reading Dear Uncle Sam
