Let’s Play a Game.

I sure like a good puzzle.
In fact, I enjoy both making and solving puzzles. In this case, I created this one. Back about 20 or so years ago, I used to sell puzzle books full of cryptograms, mazes, and other games of my own design. Back then, I simply used graphing paper to draw mazes just like this one when I was bored or listening to a lecture or audio book. In this case, I used Microsoft Paint and drew it all pretty much freehand, pixel by pixel. I’ve got one more maze coming that will be several times bigger.
Feel free to download this and either edit or print it out– and be on the lookout for the next one that I’ve already began. If you want to send me your solve, email it to [email protected] — be sure to use the word MAZE in the subject line.

Why me, Lord?


You can learn much from other people, but don’t forget that your life is a good mentor.

Hard fights make heroes. Heroes make leaders, and good leaders lead others to even greater success.

You’ve got this!

Don’t sulk, study. Don’t be a pessimist, be prepared! In the end, you’ll stop whining and start winning.

Study the lessons well and you’ll stop asking “Why Me?” and instead say “Of course Me!”

Some noise must have awoken me. It must be around 3am. As I rub my eyes, turning over to go back to sleep, I see their lights shining in through the window. They are here– for what nefarious purpose I know not, but I do know that I must escape– and fast. Read more Ninja

An army of one: The failure of the us vs them mentality.


We all like to have our opinions and many of us fight to see those opinions help change the world for the better. Many of us default back to our instincts of fights, arguments, and debate. In order to have a fight, argument, or debate, there has to he an “other side”– a 2nd party or group; someone to oppose. When we’re not on the battlefield looking at our enemy, things become more subjective. Read more An army of one: The failure of the us vs them mentality.
