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.

42 Days to go.  Money in hand. Hotel. A reservation for what some say is the best restaurant in the world. I won't believe it is happening until I get off the airplane in France.

MLS, Taillevent.

Petunia, I sure hope so! I've been thinking of it for over 20 years.

You've been on my mind for sure, Mister! I'm incredibly excited for you and hope it lives up to your hopes and expectations!

Tick, tock, tick, tock... then "Bon voyage!"

Can't wait to hear all about it! :)
