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.

Breakfast Of Champions
After what could only be described as a hefty night in Tampa, I was required by tedious business to arise early this morning. The only remedy was breakfast at the Columbia at Tampa airport. My second favorite airport restaurant ever. Eggs Malguena. A masterpiece since the 1920's. Poached eggs. Red gravy. Onions and peppers. Pork. Peas. Cuban toast. The only thing required was a bottomless mug of Cuban coffee....
Restored, I was set to take on the day. Havana style.
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".
