Travis Smith: my resume, bio and photos back to the main blog page

Did everyone remember to set their clocks back?

I didn’t.  Susie and I bolted out of bed to the ding dong of our friends CJ and Elaine arriving for a fun-filled day of cake decorating and CD buying.

This journal is going to be so short your head will spin, but that’s good news.  The reason it’s short is that it has INSTRUCTIONS that you might want to READ so you can STOP GETTING this (or so you can get friends to sign up).

I’ve automated this whole list-y thing, so now you can unsubscribe without offending anyone, or writing directly to me, or anything like that.

| To unsubscribe, send e-mail to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)
| with "unsubscribe" in the subject.

It’s that easy.

| To subscribe, send ANYTHING to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

(I suppose if you’re not subscribed, and you send a request to unsubscribe to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address), the universe will end.  Don’t Try That.)

Anyway, that’s all the instructions for today.  I’ll tell you the tale of “The Cat of Amontillado” next time.  For now, here’s a link to Edgar Allan Poe’s earlier version.

One day, I’ll digitize the student film based on that story that I starred in.  Would you like to see that?

“The sad truth is that most evil is done by people who never make up their minds to be good or evil.”

...who said it?

“Almost every American I know does trade large portions of his life for entertainment, hour by weeknight hour, binge by Saturday binge, Facebook check by Facebook check. I’m one of them. In the course of writing this I’ve watched all 13 episodes of House of Cards and who knows how many more West Wing episodes, and I’ve spent any number of blurred hours falling down internet rabbit holes. All instead of reading, or writing, or working, or spending real time with people I love.”

...who said it?

“Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

...who said it?

“I play with variables constantly.”

...who said it?

“Only the person who has learned Continual Love coming from a heart of Gratitude/Worship can effectively deal with the problem of loneliness.”
