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.

A Wish For All

That the friends are close.
The foes few and far away.
Peace surrounding us.

And that the chaos
Comes with a bit of warning
And our own choosing.

It has been a year in these parts that severely tested Epic philosophy and which I am looking forward to closing out on New Year's Eve. With that in mind, I scrawled these lines on a bar napkin last night and I send them out to you with my fervent best wishes for Christmas and for the whole of 2011 as well.


Inspirational and Attribution Note: I never attempted Haiku until I read hers. She knows who she is. I got the photo somewhere on line and will take it down if someone tells me to. ML
