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.

52


My fifty-second birthday today finds me feeling a lot closer to the beach than my fiftieth did. A lot more tired. Probably because my fifty-first year was nothing short of a maelstrom. Accounting for the infrequency of posts here. The good news is that smooth sailing seems to be ahead. Which should allow me to tend to the dozens of draft posts I have in various stages of completion.

Thanks to all of you who find The Epic worthy of a few moments of your time.

So, back to today. There is plenty of iced Champagne in the bucket still. If you will, raise a glass with me. A fifty-third year has begun. I hope that you will each come along for the ride and that we can make it more Epic than ever...

All best to you today, ML, and to your precious Irish Redhead.

If you start now, and hurry, you might catch up to me. I'd wait for you, but I don't think I have that kind of time to spare!

CHEERS!
