Here it is, my first question from StoryWorth and already off to a rocky start. I read the question and immediately started pondering what was meant by “big trip?” How far back did I go? Was it in reference to an important trip or one of a huge duration? Naturally, it was Rasa who solved the dilemma. Continue reading
I just got a fascinating holiday gift from my great friend and (sometimes) writing partner Troy and his wife Katie. It’s from a company called StoryWorth and the basic premise is pretty simple – at regular intervals (anywhere from once a day to once a month) they email you a question. You then answer it in as much or as little detail as you wish and email it back to them.
Back before the Pandemic started, I wrote a cool piece in David about virtual exercise. It’s certainly helped me get through things lately.
Bradbury, when he was starting out, sat down to write a short story a week. This seemed like a good idea to me, something to get me practicing a little more. As we all know, I need to figure out ways to get myself motivated and I figured I could sit down and, one day a week, write a story. Continue reading
Who Knows What the Nose Knows? My latest piece, Makes Perfect Scents, is all about smells and how they make us feel!
The Dilemma of an Instant Multi-Millionaire…My original piece of short fiction for this month’s David Magazine, can be found here: Holding Out for a Hero.
Special thanks to Brad Kozak for the wonderful artwork!
It’s an interesting piece, showing the specialness of the average person, which calls to mind the great quote from Doctor Who – “In 900 years of time and space, I’ve never met anyone who wasn’t important.”
So a few weeks ago, my dad asked me to write down the story of how I ended up working for Star Trek: The Next Generation. He was taking a class on the show through the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at UNLV (which is an amazing program and one I wrote about a few years back). To be honest, I was pretty excited and honored he wanted to show me off! So anyway, here’s the story: Continue reading

While I’ve written about my various trips with Aga-Boom on here, my personal blog, before, this time I’m writing about the trips for someone else. My latest David Magazine piece, Clown Trip: Breaking the Language Barrier One Smile at a Time, takes the wider perspective and involves what it means to make people laugh without language.
Couple of pieces in the Jan/Feb 2019 issue of David – Mine is called Cellphone Confidential, about the problematic relationship we have with our cellphones and other hand held technology, while Rasa makes her journalism debut with Reading in the New Year, a list of some of the best books from 2018 and a look ahead at 2019.
Enjoy the read!
Wow…100 issues go by so fast. With very few exceptions, my words appear in each and every issue, and in this latest one, I get to reflect on that journey. In My DAVID Years, I make reference to a number of pieces I’ve written over the years, most of which can be found either in the David Archives online or right here on this very blog.
Of course, I’d be completely remiss if I didn’t mention Monika, who not only provided a name for one of the pieces but who is often my table-mate while sitting at various coffee shops writing these things.
This month I’m writing about non-powered flight which reaches out to touch the edge of space!

In other words, I’m writing about the Las Vegas Jewish community!
