Bridging The Do/Do Gap

It was 4:15 this morning and I was lying in bed. The ideas were coming at break neck speed. One after another, after another. It was actually kind of incredible. By 5:05, I had to get up and see if any of these fabulous early morning, dawn breaking ideas, could survive the Do/Do gap.  Do/Do gap, you ask? Yes, the Do/Do gap. (he said DoDo – insert Beavis and Butthead laugh). They (whoever… Read More »Bridging The Do/Do Gap

Nothing to See Here, Move Along (Caution: Whiner alert!)

Books, Books, Books 2018: Has the Bar Been Lowered?

Maybe it’s just me, but yikes…. there are a lot of books being published. AND….. unfortunately many are, at best, mediocre. I get it, the world’s attention span is shrinking.
