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.

Epic Robes: A VERY Rare Selfie
Alert the [real] media. You won't see many of these. I can't put too many photos of my amazing "figgur" [as Mr. Darcy said] out there because it would drive ladies mad with desire.
In any event, I got this tremendous robe as a Fathers' Day gift a year or so ago and it is really superb. Ralph Lauren had this made from feathery Oxford cloth which is just warm enough for colder days and just cool enough for the warmer climes. I love the shawl collar. The piping doesn't hurt either. Wear it and feel like an instant movie star. I take it everywhere I go as part of my standard travel kit. Another great thing? It came with matching pajamas. No selfie of those is forthcoming I assure you. Don't want to drive the ladies mad.
In my early 60s, widower, 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".
