Time To Go

Thu, 20 Apr 2017 20:03:14 +0000

.: In late Fall 2016, after much thought and consideration, I decided to retire from the University of Alberta Libraries on 30 June 2017, two days after my 64th birthday. I did not have a moment of clarity or a revelatory instant. It just seemed to evolve naturally. June 30th is the end of the […]

Favorite Movies of the Aughts

Fri, 30 Dec 2016 11:51:01 +0000

.: This is a copy-and-paste of a post from Facebook in September 2013: I (finally) reviewed the lists of 677 (or so) films I saw from 2000-2009, and after careful consideration, here are my ten favorites, in alphabetical order.

.: So it’s time for what amounts to my annual blog post.

That said, I can feel my body aching just a bit more than it usually does as time slowly takes its toll. I am celebrating my birthday in Cambridge MA. Just returned from a […]

You Can’t Take It With You

.: I am in the midst of my 27th trip to NYC. Ostensibly, the reason I came this time was to attend a Knovel Library Advisory Board meeting, which happened on Monday and Tuesday this week. Now it’s Wednesday morning, and I’m preparing to check out of the hotel and move to the Upper East […]

LaGuardia Side Bar

Sun, 29 Sep 2013 03:38:43 +0000

I want to tell you this story, not because I was the Good Samaritan here, but because it’s an example of how we must treat someone we meet who is in distress. I think I’m writing it more for me so I can remember exactly what happened. I arrived at LaGuardia on a flight from […]
