Act 3

A month ago, I turned 60 years-old. It wasn’t nearly as monumental as turning 16 was. Birthdays have pretty much been quiet affairs for the last few decades, gone are the parties and the large social gatherings of celebration. Oh wait… that’s the pandemic lockdown rules… my bad. As I have aged, the significance of […]

Don't Pledge the Sorority... The Hazing Could Kill You

The WHO (World Health Organization) announced that it has changed the names of the many COVID variants and will no longer refer to such variants as the B.1.1.7 variant as the ’UK variant’, but will simply call it Alpha. This way no country will be identified as a country of origin and people will stop […]

Keeping the Citizens Safe

We are back under ‘Code double-red, don’t leave your house unless ABSOLUTLY necessary’, health restrictions. I would say I was locked-down but that to me requires guards, or at the very least a door. But the restrictions we have all dealt with have for the most part, pretty much been an on-paper thing. What we […]

1st-World Nonsense

Sometimes, you need to take a step back so that you can see the broader picture. Gain a new perspective and not be so narrow in your thinking. Pause, take a deep breath and see things for what they are. A case in point would be the notice Honey found taped to our back door […]

Solo Focus

A solo focus. This I believe has become the downfall for a vast majority of people. They see it one way and one way only, there is no variation to their focus. No matter what anyone says, they see it their way only. Do you know someone like that? They are the ones that you […]

I was doing so well with a regular article but the week before Easter I started a 23-day stretch with no days off. It is hard to write when your brain is saturated with things to get done. I did stare at a blank page last week for an hour, trying to organize my thoughts. […]

A Slow Road

Vaccine distribution is the hottest topic on the streets right now. Back in the old days, 2019, I would have said it was the hottest topic in the coffee shops or around the water-cooler at work, but since the coffee shops are all currently closed and hanging around the water-cooler is considered a ‘super-spreader’ event, […]

Walk-In

Did you ever think, “maybe it’s a sign”? That a power greater than yourself is trying to send you a message. Give you the heads-up of impending doom or encourage you down a path towards the ivory tower. Do you ever wonder why the message is always hidden in other events? It’s never a straight […]

There are two different entities at ‘The Playa’, or at least in my head there are. There is a restaurant business and there is a hotel/cabana/cottage/bed on the beach/ or however you wish to describe it, business. I can only speak to the hotel side of the business because I keep the reservations. With less […]

I Can't Imagine

There is a certain disconnect in our brains. A gap that exists between understanding and comprehension. The last year has been ripe with examples that seem to support this thought but this is a condition that has existed forever. You “get it”, but you “don’t get it”. On December 24, my wife Honey, had an […]
