I’m a character in a book and the book is free!

I’m a character in a book and the book is free!

I started this project with the intention of being anonymous.  I don’t know why, it just seemed like a good idea at the time.  I’ve become less anonymous as time has gone on.  I’ve become Daniel rather than just Chaostica and I’ve mentioned Eve by name.  My friends, of course, know who I am.  And since I started the Anti-Anti-Vaccine Campaign (here, here and here) my full name has appeared because all of that is...

One day wonder

One day wonder

  There is an immediacy to the internet; at least that’s true in social media.  Things happen, sometimes for completely mysterious reasons, then they are over.  Last week was an interesting time for me in cyberspace. Last Tuesday this blog got 938 hits.  For some sites that’s a small number, but not this one.  I only started blogging a couple of months ago, I’ve been quite tentative and irregular, I don’t have...

Impatience

I’ve done more writing in the last few weeks than I have in pretty much my entire life.  And I’m discovering something about what that is. I’m impatient.  I’ve always written in a short and highly condensed manner.  Eve refers to it as my Hallmark Cards style.  I do it very quickly and then it’s over. Now that I’m writing slightly longer pieces I’m finding that I haven’t got the patience to...

Hey, that was lucky! A few thoughts about luck.

Hey, that was lucky! A few thoughts about luck.

Am I qualified to talk about luck?  Am I lucky? Is anyone lucky? Do we make our own luck?  Here’s a story. I sold my share of my business two and a half years ago and left the business I’d been working in for 17 years.  I’d researched how much money Eve and I would need to have in order to retire, and we didn’t have nearly enough.  I told friends that we were in great shape.  We had all the money we needed so long...
