50 – Make ‘Your’ Own Rules

This essay is inspired by a spelling mistake.

Fifteen years ago my epic friend, Small Paul, wrote a note to a girl who amazed him. And shortly before I started writing this essay a new friend thanked me for helping her. And in both cases they spelled the same word wrong.

49 – Lifestyles, Little Things, and ‘One of These Days’

2015 arrived two weeks ago. And that got me to thinking about New Year’s Resolutions. And then myself and a couple of work buddies had a chat about the problems with New Year’s Resolutions (hereafter known as NYRs), and how to do change right. So I decided to write about that.

What's a House Newf?

The House Newf is from a rugged and beautiful island on the eastern edge of Canada called Newfoundland. He was first identified by a potter with a naturalist's flair, and he does in fact live in a house under the watchful eye of a cat that seems bewildered by the universe at large. That house is in Halifax, Nova Scotia and that's where the House Newf writes fiction and essays on things that add value to his life that may add some value to yours. You can contact him at bobharding80@gmail.com, follow him on Twitter @theHouseNewf, on Instagram @thehousenewf, and like him on Facebook. The House Newf is a unique specimen. Every home should have one.
