Happy Ground Hog Day 2016.

Ted Cruz and Hillary Clinton won last night’s Iowa caucus.

But today, in reality, is (now) May 12.

What happened 100 days ago (when i wrote this) is long forgotten.

What will happen 100 days from now is not on most people’s radars.

  1. The past
  2. The present
  3. The future

Three places to organize our things, our ideas, our experiences, our hopes, our dreams, our successes and our failures.




On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.

The Fear of Living


Yep, that’s our biggest fear.  But it never shows up on any list.


Because no one will admit it.

How do I know?

Because, think about it, if the fear of living wasn’t our biggest fear, why was this phrase – carpe diem – invented?

Carpe diem translates to:  “While we’re talking, envious time is fleeing: seize the day, put no trust in the future.”
