Quick Question: Satisfaction.

Posted in Article with tags on November 30, 2009 by Radagast

I notice lots of people in the scene yearning for something — whatever that something may be. I’m sure there are many who are satisfied in their situation but I notice so many who have “this” and would rather have “that”.

Is it just the natural state for people to not want to stand still? Do people see satisfaction as a form of stagnation or is that the journey is more important than the destination? Just musing and looking for your thoughts on the matter.

I’ll add a recommended reading for this post: “That Hell-Bound Train”, Hugo Award winning short story by Robert Bloch. You can find it in collections of his short stories or in The Fantasy Hall of Fame (edited by Robert Silverberg) — look in your local library because I believe it is out of print.

I Apologize To All Involved

Posted in Announcement with tags on November 21, 2009 by Radagast

There is an old proverb, attributed to Samuel Johnson (although probably much older), that says, “The road to hell is paved with good intentions”. In an attempt to be neutral in a particular disagreement, I find that I have only fanned the flames in my attempt to provide a platform for discussion. However, this is not what I apologize for.

My Version Of Shopping Therapy

So there I was, pathetically feeling sorry for myself the past few days. I needed to break out of my doldrums and what better way to do that than to visit my personal amusement park: The pharmacy.
