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.

Fathers' Day, The Best That I Could Do

This is him.  This is me.  I'm the shorter of the two. And I still am.  He has been gone thirteen years now.  My son, The Future Rock Star, is 19 and the glory of my life.

This is always a bittersweet day for me.

Here is a link to my best post about my dad.

And one to my best about my son.

And, why not, to another one about my son.

Because in the end Fathers' Day is about the sons and daughters. The children are the ripples of love and of honor and values and family that project from a parent's walk through life. If we were lucky enough to have great parents. And I was lucky.

Happy Fathers' Day to all!

Happy belated! Loved all 3 posts, but the one about the pens is an all time favorite! I've got a couple new posts brewing myself ... I hope.

Take care and thanks for your friendship!

One of these days I'm invading Waikiki man!!
