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.

Treat Your Children Well

The martini glass sconce! This newspaper photo just arrived in an envelope of clippings my mother sends to me from time to time. A wonderful treat that lets me know she is thinking of me during her day. And proof positive that she knows her son very, very well.

Now, if I can convert our living room into that lounge I've always wanted...

Procurement note: I did not find this sconce at Juno Lighting, but I did find it at Alfa Lighting Group. Do not ask what they cost.

Hey there. I hope you're having a good weekend. It's been cold and rainy here. Our internet keeps going out so I did want to leave a comment on your blog. Take care. Have a great week. Cheers!
