We all hold onto large rocks as we fall through life with the result being similar to Wile E. Coyote (stupidus dog).

On Facebook, we constantly see people thanking their fathers and mothers for their sacrifices. It’s a wonderful and tender moment, but it reveals a pattern of insecurity that becomes like genetic code.

When we go splat — like we do every time we have a garage sale — we realize all our energy went into things we sell at a fraction of their original price.

But we, my friends, are the Wile E. Coyotes of the consumer cartoon.

At the end of the day, according to the Dalai Lama, anyway, making friends and feeling good about yourself is a lot better than eating a skinny bird.

I did a poor imitation of Don Draper for 40 years before writing my first novel. I'm currently in the final stages of a children's book. Lucky me.
