I'm sitting here in my office wondering if I should go out when my wife goes to her work then work very hard all afternoon on my Thursday File or should I say in and work the full day.
As I lookout the window from my home office or studio I think I might just stay in. The snow is coming down but there is no wind. I have my mug of coffee and I don't know what to do.
I'm still a bit worried about the weather. It's a crazy time to travel but it's our best time to do it.

It is well known that Imhotep was part of the inner court and probably just walked over to meet with the Pharaoh Djoser... but hey, my story of meeting on the… Continue

Because my previous blog (poem) on the subject resulted in some questions;
I responded this way with great respect for the courage and passion of this man...and imagined how different the world might be today if the many great leaders assassinated over the years had met this 'shoe in the face' fate instead. And what a better world it would be if the most damaging thing you could do to express your indignation, hatred, intolerance, bigotry and impassioned difference of… Continue
