How to Hustle 101

How to Hustle 101

Part of any business is the hustle. I believe great MBA schools should all have « How To Hustle » 101 all the way to 401. I believe some believe a hustler is born not bred. I believe our children have a leg up on us already. I believe in exploding the square and...

The Bliving Room

The Bliving Room

Every corner is important in a home. Those who have four are lucky. Those who have more are blessed. Those who have none are deserved of some. I am in the business of making these lost spaces count. Cherish them. Comfort them. Create them. This particular corner has...

How to Cuckhold Covid

How do I start this post. I love writing because I love words. I possibly love words because as a child I was told “children are to be seen but not to be heard”. The written word is still silent. Unless you read out loud. This humbling but warmly coated paternal...

From Me to We

From Me to We

My bliving room is still not done, and now, only God knows if and when it ever will be, and when or if that will ever matter to me again. Self Isolation is really an eye opening exercise. It is as if Mother Nature put us in timeout to think about what we have done,...

An arch is an arch is an arch

Seeing this picture come to life
