Kid Knees -or- What Smells Like Expired Milk?

Kid Knees -or- What Smells Like Expired Milk?

As I write this, I’m sitting outside Gate 20 at the Halifax International Airport. For the past few days I’ve been sitting in a hospital room at Dartmouth General Hospital with my mom (your grandmother) and her failed kidneys. What a stupid name for an organ: “kid knees”. That always made me laugh. Not this time though. Fortunately, doctors were able to jump start them […]

The Day I Altered The Future -or- Leave The Worms Be

The Day I Altered The Future -or- Leave The Worms Be

Over the past several months I’ve had a recurring memory of a day last year when I went out for a run. It could be nothing. It could mean the end of the Universe!! I was out for a run in the spring of 2017, like I do every other day. Little did I know that day would be different. I was running past our […]

Boys Will Be Boys -or- Know An Idiot

Boys Will Be Boys -or- Know An Idiot

There once was a time when I placed all teens in the same category: Batshit Crazy! But then I began working in a field that gave me more exposure to them and in a short period of time my perception was forever changed. I quickly realized that not only was I wrong about teens but I probably grouped them together the way most people do […]

The Transition -or- Keeping It Is The Hard Part

The Transition -or- Keeping It Is The Hard Part

In April 2016 I came to the conclusion that enough was enough. I was a 225 pound, chunkified, aching allover bag of fat and bone and I was fed up. I was tired of being tired all the time. I was tired of being grumpy. I didn’t like where I was going. I stumbled across an old photo of myself coming out of the ocean […]

When in Rome -or- Wutza Matta Fah You??

When in Rome -or- Wutza Matta Fah You??

Mark Twain once said that travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness. I’m learning this the more and more with each trip I take. Travel to me is not only a chance to see and learn about other lands. It’s a chance to catch a glimpse inside the lives of people of other cultures and creeds. To walk in another’s shoes. It’s also an […]

Dear Social Media, I’m Breaking Up With You -or- Committing Cybersuicide and Loving It! 

Dear Social Media, I’m Breaking Up With You -or- Committing Cybersuicide and Loving It! 

I discovered the Internet way back in the 20th century. It was 1996 actually. I was a production assistant on a TV series and almost always stayed late at night to jump on the computer in our script coordinator’s office. I was amazed at the endless piles of information that was available at my finger tips. Of course it was dial-up back then so I […]

MacRae’s In Cuba 2017 -or- Sorry ‘Bout Your Eye, Jessica!

MacRae’s In Cuba 2017 -or- Sorry ‘Bout Your Eye, Jessica!

As I write this my 8 year old daughter is sleeping soundly in bed beside me. She awoke crying in her own bed telling me she can’t stop thinking about Cuba and misses it.  Flashback to last Friday (April 7th). My wife and I pulled the girls out of school under the guise we were taking them to McDonald’s for lunch. That much was true […]

The Fight To Be Creative -or- Why Is Nothing Easy?

The Fight To Be Creative -or- Why Is Nothing Easy?

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about a project I’m currently working on. It’s a children’s books I’m struggling to put together with a friend of mine… and I stress the word “struggling”. It seems that every time I go to work on the book life gets in the way – life or a lack of enthusiasm. I liken it to writer’s block but I’m […]

Lucky Number 13 -or-  Hang Up The Shining Armour Boys!

Lucky Number 13 -or-  Hang Up The Shining Armour Boys!

Today marks my 13th wedding anniversary. On January 29th, 2004 on a sunny beach in St. Lucia my wife and I said “I do” (although I couldn’t hear her very well but I’m pretty sure she said it too). It’s funny but I remember it like it was yesterday. Her dad, step mom, brother and his girlfriend (at the time) were there to witness the […]
