Public Transit

Plinky asked, “If pub­lic trans­porta­tion were avail­able in your neigh­bor­hood, would you use it?”

MARTA Bus Stop Sign

I do use it! It’s much cheap­er than main­tain­ing a car, when you con­sid­er the cost of insur­ance, gas, upkeep, etc. For those of us who don’t care to dri­ve (or whose health […]

Fate

Plinky asked, “Do you believe in fate?”

Your des­tiny

No, I don’t believe in fate at all. Fate implies some over­all pow­er or force in charge of the uni­verse that over­rides free will and human choic­es, and I com­plete­ly reject that notion.

People’s lives are affect­ed by what hap­pens to […]

Gratitude

1) Medicare 2) My scoot­er 3) Amelia (my cat)

Kids Today

Plinky said, “Name three advan­tages that kids born these days have over old­er gen­er­a­tions. What about dis­ad­van­tages?

Inter­net I

1) The inter­net. I can hard­ly imag­ine what it would have been like to have ready access to so much infor­ma­tion at an ear­ly age!

2) Ubiq­ui­tous con­nec­tiv­i­ty. Even for those like my […]

Gratitude

1) Auto insur­ance 2) My cell phone 3) My daugh­ter

Gratitude

Today I’m grate­ful for MARTA, which allows me to get around with­out hav­ing to own a car.

I’m also grate­ful for my won­der­ful pain spe­cial­ist and incred­i­ble ther­a­pist.

On the Radio

Plinky asked, “Do you ever lis­ten to the radio any­more?”

Car Radio

I only lis­ten to the radio in the car. In fact, I don’t think I’ve got a radio at home any­where. If I do lis­ten, I almost always choose the local NPR affil­i­ate to lis­ten to. If it isn’t […]

Gratitude

1) My Dad­dy, and his (ongo­ing) recov­ery from surgery. 2) Every­thing I learned about music from J.D. Mardis and all the oth­er teach­ers over the years. 3) Easy access to a pool.

My Favorite Comedian

Plinky asked, “Who’s your favorite come­di­an? Is there any­one you can’t stand?”

George Car­lin May 12 1937 — June 22 2008

George Car­lin is the King of Come­di­ans as far as I’m con­cerned. He’s always hilar­i­ous. I love watch­ing old clips and read­ing his books. His death was a huge loss […]
