Connecting Dots – A view from behind the microphone

Traditions, new and old. My brain has been connecting a lot of dots from an amazing kickoff to the summer season.    I write this sitting at the base of what we call W or Tenderfoot Mountain.  Surely the earlier inhabitants of our valley had another name as archaeologists have found  60 clusters of artifacts on […]

Workshop: There is no fear in public speaking…

Post Image

  but there is puking….. Literally the letters for the word “FEAR” are not in the words “Public Speaking” but you can pull out the letters for “PUKING” easy enough.   It’s very normal to get a little (or a lot worried) when you’re speaking to a crowd or even presenting at work and nearly 80% of […]

Instantly Connect with Anyone…..Rapport!

Post Image

Anyone! Yes, anyone!  I’ve now said “anyone” three times, now. Maybe four. First, a question: if you need to effectively communicate with people daily please nod right now.  That should be almost everyone, right? Now, nod again if you’ve ever communicated poorly.  Ouch, right? Poor communication makes life hard!  And life is hard enough and worse still […]

My list of failed bands….

And why you should come to the KBUT Kampout! The 2017 KBUT Kampout is coming up in a month and will once again be right around my birthday!  Last year I served as emcee and man-oh-man (and man-oh-woman, #equality) what a great day at Ibar Ranch.  Don’t judge but: I’m generally not a fan of […]

Triumph and Tragedy: Hockey Life

Post Image

Marrying truth with fiction… The ice rink of Gunnison, Colorado is home to many a triumph and many a tragedy.  Rec League hockey at it’s finest and the human animal at it’s worst.  Ice skating brings out the grace and fluidity of movement in human form – but hand and ice-skater a stick and ask […]

International Literalist Society: Use Caution!

A plea to you, loyal readers.  Don’t take life too literally…. Some people do. For the afflicted  similes, metaphors, idioms and figurative language make the world a dangerous and confusing place.  That’s why in 2015 I formed the International Literalist Society. Our first attempts to help those burdened with only a literal understanding of the world were a complete […]

When Doves Cry

Post Image

I just watched Supermench: The Legend of Shep Gordon (a Maui resident) and it’s a great movie. Shep is the manager for many a famous band back in the 1960s including Jimi Hendrix, Janice Joplin, Alice Cooper and Pink Floyd (for 9 days!) and Luther Vandross. Once of Shep’s best publicity stunts was intentionally breaking […]

Astrology…A Foundation of Miscommuncation

Once…long ago…a young boy named Nativus Purus and his drunkard ancestor Uncle Vinum Maximus chatted about the great stories of Greek mythology and the astrological signs in the night sky.  Uncle Vinum was deep into thought an also deep into his goblet already…the conversation went something like this…. Nativus Purus: Uncle Vinum? Explain the history of our […]

Turkey Dogs: I Guess it Counts

I recently made a career shift out of environmental endeavors to focusing on our community’s youth through the Boys & Girls Club of Hawaii has brought me full-circle to a degree. Some would say it’s fortunate that I don’t interact with our Clubhouse members everyday – and hey, that hurts! I’ve enjoyed expanding my exposure […]

Finding My Bonefish Willy’s

Post Image

The are places I will always associate with specific periods of time in my life. Places I will cherish, off the beaten path gems with a dash of dry-rot, buckled pavers and crooked art. Gems – albeit rough cut and set in slightly tarnished gold. Places with great views, great food and/or drink and grand […]
