Welcome to The Epic! I am launching this blog as a manifesto for and a guide to living well. The title and motto of the blog are taken from the Epicureans, at least some of whom believed in the notion that not one minute of the future was guaranteed to them and that as a result they had the duty to live life to its fullest every moment.
I believe in discovering fun and pleasurable things wherever I find myself each day and I am told I have a knack for unearthing them. My hope is that by sharing in my pleasures and some of my ways of finding them you will begin to collect all the riches that lie in the moments of your life. They are there. Take them! All our lives should be.....Epic.

Those of you who stop by regularly will notice that my newest post, "Birthday Cake", came up dated September 15th. BEHIND an older post titled "Car Washing Interlude". You will have to scroll down a little to see my newest piece as a result. I have no idea how that happened. I cannot figure out how to remedy the problem. Thus, this notice.
Thanks so much to all of you who have read The Epic in its first month! I love your comments and I will try hard to earn your visits.
In my mid 50s, husband, father and itinerant storyteller. I am a putative jazz singer, poet and novelist, dedicated to mining every minute of life for the veins of pleasure they contain. My motto is "Dum Vivimus, Vivamus"..."While we Live--LET US LIVE".
