An Apple(R) a day…

I kid you not, I’m sandwiched between: my partner giving some poor Apple employee a 20-Questions interrogation on the intricate features of iMac accessibility and the remote possibility that the screen and OS can accommodate his low-vision conundrum, and an earphone clad lad who seems to have a gamer’s version of Tourette’s And through the … More An Apple(R) a day…

Renegade, politically-incorrect thoughts on cancer

(Note: everything I’m about to say is the results of my observations and experience with cancer in adults.  None of this has anything whatsoever to do with cancer in children.  And of course, these are biased, imperfect generalizations based on my admittedly small circle and its periphery.  I recommend taking this with way more than … More Renegade, politically-incorrect thoughts on cancer

Suddenly, it became an anniversary of up-shaking, unsettling, gut-wrenching tragedy as one of the most beloved people in my life thus far (my maternal grandfather) passed on without warning. And then it … More Circle of life
