This Blog was created by me and for me. I dont take suggestions
and I dont really care what you have to say in regards to content
or design of this Blog. As far as individual posts go, I would
love to hear your opinions in the comment section (especially
if your opinion is radically different then mine). I try to post
often, but sometimes a week will go by where I am to busy to post

Have you ever noticed how many of us seem to live "lives of quiet desperation",
as Henry David Thoreau puts it? We feel trapped by forces beyond our control,
trapped in a mindless job, for the sake of money, status or recognition. We
complain that we never seem to have the time for what's really important to us,
because our jobs take so much energy and focus that we hardly have anything left
over. We plod along day to day; sometimes we even dread getting out of bed in
We see the futility of the standard, socially approved path
in America. It goes something like this: Go to school, get good
grades, so you can get a "good" job, make lots of money, get a
mortgage and a car and a spouse, keep up with the Joneses, and be "successful".
We know it's not the path for us; we want to define success for ourselves. But
we don't know how to forge a new path for ourselves, because, well, what would
we do for money if we quit? How would we support ourselves? Sometimes there's a
glazed look in our eyes; it's as if some part of us has died. We are just doing
time, working hard and hoping for the next promotion, waiting for the day when
we can throw off our shackles, quit our dull jobs, and finally live life.
Everything gets put on hold until we have more time, or more money. Meanwhile,
life is passing us by.
Cleveland does not suck. You do.
Cleveland is a fine place, from 2000 miles away.
It's an excellent rest-stop between Chicago and New York.
