I just couldn’t do it.   Couldn’t get the June post done in time.   But see, you don’t understand.  It’s not my fault.   I’d planned on writing something about the Alumni Reunion trip down Memory Lane I’d taken, earlier this month, but that post was highly dependent upon pictures, which are still being held hostage in […]

Our house after insurance’s “repairs.” Renters had occupied it for years by then.   I knew that before we left for Montana in July 2006, I would kiss the house goodbye.  And so I did–its bland white wall in the dining room followed by the vanilla stucco exterior. It was a typical San Diego house,  one story, […]

A while back I stated space navigation was the art of hindsight. Since so many people asked how that could be, I decided to explain. (Actually, no one asked, but Dime twisted my arm into doing a second hindsight conversation, and I cannot think of anything else.) In space, no one knows where they are.  […]

This is my first contribution to Group Writing. I would like to both thank 10 Cent for starting this, because I enjoy reading the posts, and curse him for making it sound like fun. As it turns out, I’m no better now at coming up with ideas for what to write about than I was […]

Real world problems can affect our personal finances, health and well being. Long before we learned of financial meltdowns, pandemics and terrorism, as kids we had a very different set of fears. All children worry, some more than others. A yutes worry can be larger than life; the stuff of sleepless nights. Fears may be […]

It was 1989 and we’d taken the family motorhome on a trip up to Canada.  My parents had always wanted to drive through Quebec, but I think my mother misunderstood my father about the phrase “drive through Quebec.”  The last 2 years of work had been especially rough, and other family trips had been cancelled […]

I am to some degree a historian. While not the day job, it does bring in some bucks. History is the art of hindsight. You plow through a bunch of facts related to something happening in the past, pick out the salient ones, and write a story about it. You may even make predictions based […]

  There are three ways I enjoy looking back in retrospection. For me I have always enjoyed other people’s stories as an insight into life, for information, and as a guidance for attitudes and insights on how to proceed and progress in life. The creation of stories seems to me to be a way of […]

When I think of hindsight, it’s usually in the context of 20/20 hindsight when something goes wrong.  But it is just as likely to be simply a matter of perspective.  Some important turning point in your life occurs, but you don’t realize the importance at the time because you’re busy living in the middle of […]
