I’d been out of town for days, and there was no word from my administrative manager. She’d have an end-of-week report coming in tomorrow, according to the schedule we’d crafted, and she’d completed the beginning of the week account review, as she’d been doing for months now, but in between? Silence.
Could everything really be going that smoothly? Continue reading “The Path of Entrepreneurship: Leaving the Kids”

I call bullshit. Continue reading “The Fallacy of Self-Love”
Last night a girl friend called to confide
That she’s probably leaving her long-term relationship.
I felt tired as we talked,
But didn’t see the monsters coming down the hall.

I spent the last 2 ½ months soaking up the relaxed tropical bliss of Bali. Don’t misunderstand though — just because I spent time sipping coconuts, swapping life stories, and gazing at the lightning of distant thunderstorms, doesn’t mean that I left behind everything from home.

Los Angeles, I hate you.
I know, you’re not supposed to say things like that when you’re upset.
I know, I’ll probably take it back later.
I don’t mean LA: the people.
