Vacation to Austin – An Introspection

Texas Capitol

Vacation, I have not really taken one in about 3 years. A few day trips here and there maybe a day or two at home but an actual honest to goodness vacation is not something me and the family had done in quite a while. Goodness I love these two.   So what did we do? We planned a trip to Galveston. This was great, I was not really looking forward to another trip to Galveston …

Here We Find Revenge


I feel excited. I thought I would be terrified but the vast nebula and planetary system demands my exploration and I must find the navigation systems. They could have left me a map. I punch the door release and hold my breath as the the door slides open. A single corridor stands before me running left to right. Johnny Cash plays softly to the left so I go right no need to seek revenge. The …

How to Loose Your Vision

I have never been without a plan in practical things of life, especially my job. I have worked for my current employer for 2 years. It has been the hardest, highest stress job I have ever had. I loved the company. Well let me clarify, I loved the vision I had for it. I took the job as Project Manager at the small business leaving behind development for a season. I wanted a few things from …

On The Wings of Moths


O Lord my God, When I in awesome wonder, Consider all the worlds Thy Hands have made; I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder, Thy power throughout the universe displayed. It echos faintly through the crawl spaces, halls and walls of the Aposolith. I think the artist is Johnny Cash. When I get quiet enough to hear it, my blood boils. The Aposolith is a womb of sorts. My own universe they told …

When I Could Not See The Sun

Moon and an space man

It was so small so insignificant. It pierced the hull of my ship the Aposolith letting in the greedy vacuum of space. I wore my space suite constantly as a precaution against such things. After the red warning lights stopped and the alarms quit screeching I moved through the Aposolith looking for what had done the damage. I found it. It seemed to be your run of the mill micro asteroid but when I reached …

At the Mountains of Madness by H.P. Lovecraft – A Review

At The Mountains of Madness

At the Mountains of Madness by H.P. Lovecraft My rating: 4 of 5 stars This was my second trip into the world of H.P. Lovecraft. It was a fantastic look into the impossible speculation about things that we can not fully understand yet are shown to be no less real. I loved the way the book is presented as part journal, part confession and all warning. The style of telling the story is one I …

Viewing The Connections – Practicing Compassion

I have heard some thought provoking sayings before from strong minded, kind people. I have read proverbs at least 15 times. Recently a quote caught my attention….. “Be kind for everyman fights a hard battle.”

Knowledge of the Holy – Book Review

The Knowledge of the Holy by A.W. Tozer My rating: 4 of 5 stars Fair warning I am about to draw some odd similarities between authors. I have enjoyed H.P. Lovecrafts style of horror for sometime. Leaving the reader with a since of nihilism. This idea that we are so insignificant and that the things happening in the universe are so unknowable that upon knowing them you loose your mind.

The Interuption

Project management is a weird thing I tend to see projects from a developer stand point. How do I organize this project and gather as much information up front that I might empower my team to make decisions about the project? I think this way not because I am a great project manager, but because of my exposure to the kind of tasks my team is expected to preform. It is profoundly more complicated than …

Sweet Madness

This is sweet madness, how could such fortune beset us.
