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.

All Aboard!

Into a new year. The ride promises new opportunities. New risks. New travels. New adventures. New friends. Bumps in the road. Smooth stretches. New is not always good. That is inherently involved with the adventure of the ride.

There will be 0ld friends and places. Old restaurants. Old memories. [Some] old clothes. Certainly, old cocktails. Hopefully, old wines. Everything old is not worn thin. Especially when we have been around long enough to have discernment about what we keep with us for the trip.

So climb aboard then. The Epic philosophy is that the ride itself is the thing, not the destination. Jump in. Ride along. In the end, we are going to take the ride in any event. Let's make it great, good fun. Now boarding for 2010 and beyond! Onward and upward...

Personal Comfort Note: My January 2009 post about The Hangover might be useful to one or two of you right about now. ML
