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.

Fuzzy Photos From Great Bars
Treu's Tic Toc Bar. Wausau, Wisconsin. Opened in 1965. Still the real thing today. Lined with planks from the North Woods. Leinenkugel's on tap. Great bar food. Heaven. This shot taken yesterday. In the frozen darkness of a winter's evening. A great bar pushes back such things. An even greater bar wraps such things about itself and uses them for insulation.
In my mid 50s, husband, father and itinerant storyteller. I am a putative jazz singer, poet and novelist, dedicated to mining every minute of life for the veins of pleasure they contain. My motto is "Dum Vivimus, Vivamus"..."While we Live--LET US LIVE".
