Hello!

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.

Pamplona 2009


The Fiesta de San Fermin. The Running of the Bulls. 1 day, 18 hours, 42 minutes, 48 seconds away. Still time to fly there and don the sacred red and white. Or, you can lay in a bottle or two of Fundador Brandy...


like Papa and his friends and watch The Running every day on line. You won't see me in the broadcasts. This year.

ooooh that last picture of the bull in the photographer's face is freaky! I think I'll stay with the Fundador Brandy.

Petunia, I agree that photo gives one pause...and note the white garment on his horn...

I heard that someone was killed this morning. Gored to death. Poor soul.
