Rule #32

I finally had the opportunity to watch "Zombieland" with my bride. It was great and had a set of rules for surviving Zombie Apocalypse.
This did not inspire me to write a whole new list of "blogging rules" or compare the movie to blogging.

Rather, rule #32 stuck out in my head as I watched the movie and enjoyed it so in a quiet moment that we needed. 

"Enjoy the little things."

It's silly, repeated way to often, but almost always taken for granted. We focus on big goals, great dreams, or huge ideas, but in many ways its the little things that can REALLY help.

They keep us grounded, keep us sane, and remind us that while pursuing the big, we can still be happy with simple and easy. Just as Woody Harrelson's character just wanted a Twinkie in the zombie apocalypse to keep him sane.

What's your little thing? Also, what would your post-zombie name be? In the movie, they called themselves by where they were trying to go. Can I be Honolulu?

Only bands and their most ardent fans go there. The rest are on Facebook.  There is talk of selling Myspace, but who in their right mind would consider it? This will have some interesting implications for bands down the road. Many use Myspace as their de facto website, just pushing their domain name onto the customizable site. Now apparently, Reverbnation , a North Carolin

New Life

  It's weird, sad and slightly freeing. I've been headed towards a completely different life for a lot longer than I even knew. It took me a while to catch up to realize it was happening.  Thankfully, I was cognizant enough to see it finally and mostly ready for it. It's amazing when you have the rug completely pulled out from underneath you. The adjustments are jarring.  I made mistakes, but like most I learned from them, adapted, and tried my best to do better. The reason you see that truck next to a storage place? That's the sum of my life right now.  Never take for granted that you will work hard for something or someone, and it will end up meaning very little. You are guaranteed nothing, owed nothing, promised nothing. Anything and everything can be taken away in a heartbeat.  I wrote this to my kids a while back: I tried to be the best father I could be based on what I knew when I knew it and how I could. One of the lessons for your life needs to be: you need to b
