  • "It was the best of times, ...." by Dorien Grey 8/4/2014 2:24:22 AM
    I’ve always taken little-boy delight in sharing things which give me great pleasure, in the hopeful if perhaps incorrect expectation that others will enjoy them, too. But I note that as I grow older, it’s more and more difficult to directly ... more

  • A Conversation with My Muse by Dorien Grey 7/31/2014 2:47:51 AM
    You rang? Yes! I just realized I've got to do a blog for tomorrow. Relax. No hurry. You've got all day. Oh, yeah. We know how that goes. I get up at 6 a.m., have a cup of coffee, pet the cat, and the next thing I know the l... more

  • Mr. In-Betweem by Dorien Grey 7/28/2014 2:49:14 AM
    You're probably much too young to remember one of the top songs from 1944, Harold Arlen and Johnny Mercer's "Accentuate the Positive," but my mind's radio was playing it when I woke up this morning. ("You've got to Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate-the Pos-i-tive, E-... more

  • On Memories by Dorien Grey 7/24/2014 3:06:37 AM

  • America's Voice by Dorien Grey 7/21/2014 3:02:16 AM
    If you are under 50, you have no real idea of the impact one song, sung by one heavyset lady in a black dress with white trim, had on a frightened nation.... more

  • Sometimes you are recognized by your own by Herman Yenwo 7/18/2014 10:53:57 PM
    The old saying has it that a prophet is never recognized by his own kinsmen. In fact this happened even to our lord - Jesus Christ.... more

  • "One Ringy-Dingy" by Dorien Grey 7/17/2014 3:07:54 AM
    I've never been much of a phone talker since my teenage years—I don't do all that much talking off the phone, either, but that's another story. So when I moved back to Chicago in 2006, I decided not to have a land-line phone at all, and instead bough... more

  • Thomas by Dorien Grey 7/14/2014 3:53:49 AM
    I’ve taken, of late, to closing my cat Spirit in the bathroom at night with food, litter, water, a couple of places to sleep—he seems to like the sink—and a toy; all to prevent his sitting outside my bedroom door at anywhere from 5 a.m. on to sing me... more

  • On Meeting Myself by Dorien Grey 7/10/2014 2:46:13 AM
    I know, I know...it’s always “me”, isn’t it? … Well, yes, I guess it is, but you are very kind in indulging me. At dinner the other night with friends, while trying with great effort and limited success to force my head up high enough to mak... more

  • Worst President Since WWII? by David A. Schwinghammer 7/7/2014 8:01:37 AM
    Is Obama the worst president since WWII? ... more

  • Frustration by Dorien Grey 7/7/2014 4:02:43 AM
    Probably the single most powerful…and prevalent…emotion in my life is frustration. For me, it is a hair-trigger, automatic reaction to anything which, in my estimation, does not go exactly as I think it should go. For me, it is a bottomless chasm of ... more

  • 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
    A federal judge ruled that tenure for teachers in California was unconstitutional. This is a nice way to lose the good teachers we have. ... more

  • 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
    WILL (there is now a piece on Wedsnesdays as well as on Satudays. Please read Wedneday also. Your comments will be greatly appreciated.) George F. Will, the 73 year old 1977 Pulitzer Prize winner (when he was 35) and columnist for a m... more

  • 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
