Lifetime Lion

December 27, 2021

So we watched The Lion in Winter, one of our favorite Christmas movies. I’ve seen the movie many times, and I think I startled Kathy by singing along with the theme music. Regis regum rectissimiprope est dies domini,dies irae et vindictae, tenebrarum et nebulaediesque mirabiliumtonitruorum fortium,dies quoque angustiae,maeroris ac tristitiae. (It’s pretty much the only […]

Primed

December 25, 2021

The tamales are standing by, and and the roast beast lurks in its cooler. (It was too large to fit into the already overstuffed refrigerator.) The potatoes are already cooked, and the pearl onions stands ready for brown-braising. The cat prowls the corridors, ready to repel invading miniature reindeer.

I am Yorkered

December 11, 2021

About a year ago I got a call from New Yorker writer Chris Byrd, who asked about my connection to the Cyberpunk 2020 RPG and the soon-to-be-released video game Cyberpunk 2077. A lengthy interview followed, along with a series of emails. The article was scheduled for January 2021, then shifted to June. When June came […]

Wavy

December 7, 2021

Here’s a photo of Lisbon’s  Monument of the Discoveries (Padrão dos Descobrimentos) taken from across the plaza on the landward side, looking out toward the Tagus. Note the way the waves roll across the plaza, like the ocean billows rocking a caravel on its voyage to the unknown. It’s an optical illusion, of course. The […]
