Essays Blogs
  • The Broken Compass by Dorien Grey 7/3/2014 2:52:22 AM
    As so often happens when I set off to write a blog, I'll head off in one direction and not only end up nowhere near where I intended to go when I started, and have no idea how I got where I did end up. I seem to have a magic ability to unconsciously ... more

  • Pondering the Imponderable by Dorien Grey 6/30/2014 3:03:20 AM
    We humans seem to take a perverse delight in pondering questions for which there are and can be no definitive answers. It's one of the many wonders—and frustrations—of life that we spend so much time and energy on them as we do. Perhaps it is partly ... more

  • Tenure for Teachers by David A. Schwinghammer 6/26/2014 8:33:45 AM

  • Of Time and Blogs by Dorien Grey 6/26/2014 4:01:21 AM
    I'm not sure what to call it. It's not ennui (one of my all-time favorite words, by the way). It's not really boredom. And I don't feel particularly burnt-out. It's just, I think, the need for a short break in the routine. This is my 954th ... more

  • WILL by Robert A. Mills 6/25/2014 6:23:45 AM

  • Slleep by Dorien Grey 6/19/2014 3:08:51 AM
    I’ve not used an alarm clock in 40 years. My mind has a build-in alarm which is set for no later than 6:00, no matter how much I would like to sleep longer. Seven mornings out of ten, I wake up like a tree full of owls between 5:50 and 6:00, no matte... more

  • Technology and Me by Dorien Grey 6/16/2014 2:58:37 AM
    It isn't that technology has it out for me. It's just that it doesn't give a crap whether I understand it or not.... more

  • Sing Me a Song by Dorien Grey 6/12/2014 3:07:22 AM

  • Lies by Dorien Grey 6/9/2014 1:49:49 AM
    Lying is an integral part of human nature. For anyone to deny lying merely proves the point. There are an infinite number of types of lies, but the vast majority are basically a form of defense mechanism—a means of self protection when we fear the t... more

  • Name Dropping by Dorien Grey 5/26/2014 2:38:07 AM
    While I always find name droppers mildly annoying, I realized the other day, while talking with an English friend (drop #1) I met on my last year’s cruise from Rome to Istanbul (drop #2) about the possibility of his joining me and my friend Gary on o... more

  • "Mine Enemy Grows Older" by Dorien Grey 5/19/2014 2:17:02 AM
    It’s not often one gets to make reference to raconteur Alexander King, Walt Kelly’s Pogo, and Dorothy Parker in the same sentence, but I’ve managed. The title of this particular blog is taken from King’s 1958 book of his personal observations on agin... more

  • "Under God" by Dorien Grey 5/12/2014 2:31:43 AM

  • Where There's a Will.... by Dorien Grey 5/5/2014 2:36:26 AM
    There’s that old saying, “Where there’s a will, there are relatives.” And anyone who has ever gone through the family feuding and squabbling that far too often goes on when a close relative dies knows it can be a pretty ugly experience. When... more

  • Logic Redux by Dorien Grey 4/28/2014 2:20:14 AM
    To the same degree that I hate and reject reality, I embrace and treasure logic. Not the extreme Spock-the-Vulcan logic, necessarily, where there is absolutely no wiggle-room, but good old common sense logic. Logic gives the world—well, me at least—a... more
