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.

Merry Christmas, Redux



If please ye, listen to my lore...
--Spenser.

Lore: (n). Accumulated facts, traditions or beliefs about a particular subject.
--Webster

Come listen to my lore.
Essential to my fabric.
My faith. My life.
Entwined within me from earliest days.
Causing love. And shame.
Change. And growth.
Action. And peace.
Not "better". But mine.
Come listen to my lore.
A lore of life. And of love.
That causes me to make and send these notes.

A blessing/ananda/dana/baraka/b'rakha. From me and mine. To you.
