Also follow me on:

Let's see, what to tell y'all about myself . . . Well, I like long walks on the beach and poking dead things in the sand with a stick . . . I’m planning on sailing my small boat across an ocean . . . and I have a few books to write! So stay tuned, ‘cause there are lots of adventures in store and stories to be told!

Note: if you know anyone who likes naps, check out my book / website www.Napism.Info !

My favorite hubs (of mine) so far are:

* The Coffee of a Lifetime (it won a Hubnugget award!)

* The Last Smoke

* Little Nudges

I’ve posted some fiction on HP, too, and some “creative expression”:

* Finding the Phoenix

* A Note to My Wife

* He was Different

* The Third Summer

My hubs jump to a variety of topics, everything from “just for fun” (You Gotta Watch Out for Dick; The Most Fun and Easy Way to Dig Out a Tree Stump) to “hopefully useful” (How to Embarrass Yourself and Lower Your Social and Professional Standing; McDonald's, Burritos, and Starbucks.)

If you want to be notified by email of my latest postings, you can sign up to Hubpages without submitting any writing yourself; after you sign up, just come back here to this page and click “follow.”

Also, if you'd like to read about my rebuilding a Swedish sailboat, check out my boat blog, www.svKalaNag.com.

Thanks for your interest!
