Re-inventing myself

“Like the legend of the phoenix, all ends with beginnings” – Daft Punk This is my first entry on the new soulcruzer site. I am not new to blogging. I’ve been in the game since 2004. My most consistent trait as a blogger has been experimentation. If you’ve been a...

Your ‘why’ dictates the format

Blogging for 28 days straight has been a little tough. There have been days that if I was not doing this challenge, I would not have created a post. I would have let myself get by with the excuse that I was too busy or too tired to blog. But...

Life in juxtaposition

What’s been good about this 30-day challenge is that it has forced me to be still for a few minutes and contribute to my own blog, which is in effect, contributing to my story. What do I mean by that? Let’s face it I’m not writing earth-shattering posts. I’m not...

a little taste of adventure close to home

I felt compelled to stay up late watching 80s videos. So many teenage memories flooded through my half-baked brain. Not such a great idea when you’re on the backside of 50 wondering where all the time went. Watching these videos reminded me of time when all I wanted to do...

The real reason I’m a blogger

I played PUBG with Jeremy last night. It’s been 142 days since I last played. 1) where does the time go? 2) Shows you how much of a gamer I am!???? I like games, but always feel guilty if i whittle away hours playing them. In my head, I keep...

What goes on must go on

1 I’ve been in a kind of holding pattern over the last several days as I process all the words I’ve been reading about content curation and blogging and the state of blogging in general. I’m gearing up of course for another crack at this blogging thing as a central...

Dopamine tastes good

“I wish the real world would stop hassling me.” – Matchbox Twenty Ok, here’s goes the start of my 30-day blogging challenge. Why? For no reason other than wanting to start daily blogging again. I miss it as a platform for keeping up with myself. Like the old days. Plus I was inspired...

It’s not the big that matters

The blogging game has changed so much since I first started blogging back in 2003. Blogging these days has been relegated to the content marketing game where folks are pimping their wears trying to position themselves as thought leaders in the hopes that they can either become social media influencers...

Movement on my mind

The more you move the better you feel. One of my intentions this year was to move more. I started off well, as you tend to do, but as T.S. Eliot wrote: Between the idea And the reality Between the motion And the act Falls the Shadow Now it’s time...

Are you feeling ok?

I can’t believe how excited I get about a book. I found a package on the stairs that had this in it: I could feel my face light up like a little school boy with a new toy. And of course I was suppose to be doing something else, but...
