  There are things that I know. For example, I know that if I get up and spend 10-20 minutes journaling, I’ll have a better day. I’ll feel happier all day. My thoughts will be clearer. I’ll get more done. Yet I often don’t do this. In fact, I’ll go months without doing it. I have these notebooks that I like to write in. They’re nothing special at all, just regular lined notebooks.

Farewell, fair circus


Posted By on May 21, 2017

The circus is closing. THE circus. The big one. The biggest one there ever was. Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey.   For a brief period in my 20s — about a year and a half — I was a promoter for Feld Entertainment, the company that owns Ringling, Disney on Ice, and several other entertainment properties. Me and my fellow promoters were the people responsible for making sure you knew the show was coming to town and that your...
