  • Bruce Lee Quote

    March 06, 2011

    Bruce had me up to three miles a day, really at a good pace. We’d run the three miles in twenty-one or twenty-two minutes. Just under eight minutes a mile [Note: when running on his own in 1968, Lee would get his time down to six-and-a-half minutes per mile]. read more

  • Missed Connection

    September 27, 2011

    I was on BART the other day (name of the bay area subway system), when I saw a young woman who looked familiar sitting across from me. I suspected I was wrong and didn’t give it another thought- Well maybe one or two more, about her attractive nerdyness. read more

  • Dear Class

    September 8, 2011

    I‘ve developed a reputation at school for being a demanding teacher who expects too much and grades too harshly. I had a particularly lazy class a couple semesters back, and gave them a good tongue lashing via email. read more

    Finally the spring harvests of Mainland China and Taiwanese teas have made it state side. I had my first cup of 2010 Lishan Spring after months of waiting. It felt like coming home. Now I’m all stocked up and will hopefully make it to next spring. read more

  • Records

    June 14, 2009

    I finally got my record player up and running. After putting so much effort in pairing the right amp, monitor speakers, needle, it’s such a joy to hear my music come out and fill the room. Some of the records I’ve been playing on it are albums I have on CD or digital, and it’s really interesting to hear the difference on the records.

  • Dislodged From Immediate Experience

    February 23, 2009

    A glimpse at objective reality swimming just beyond the sizzle of my perception.

    This morning I lay starring into the swelling morning sky beyond slanted roofs and naked branches.
    Exhausted from a sleepless night my mind sparking and slipping from underneath itself,
    suddenly tumbled over into a foreign expanse.

  • No Talking Tuesday # 60

    November 17, 2008

    This Tuesday found me stalking the halls of a Toys R Us. I thought it was blasphemous to my childhood that I should now live right near a Toys R Us (Which would have been something I would have only dared dream as a child) and that I’ve strayed so far from my roots, that I don’t even care.
