Welcome to an update for the February edition of Central Standard Time. As promised, there will be more in the coming weeks.
Please re-visit the outstanding essays in this month’s edition. I am happy you are here.
The world moves forward on the coattails of the obsessed, the driven, the inspired and tenacious humans around us. Beings unable to put down the pen, the paintbrush, the instrument, the book, the stats; they stay up later than they should and rise early to refine their physical being and mental processes. Here are some of the obsessed and driven people we know. Sit with us, then write your own story.
I encourage everyone to visit and pledge to the Marc Piane MS Fundraiser:
Erin Denk returns! I wouldn’t stop asking (the poor woman rolls her eyes). Though I asked for good reason. Erin’s amazing art is a given and her writing is always a gift of insight. Check out “A Creative Life.”

Grab a mug of your favorite beverage. I’m down with Kenya AA right now, the world is good. Have a seat at the virtual table and join the conversation. As always, feel free to speak up and let the writers know your thoughts. You can CONTACT me, anytime.
Some nights I lie awake and think of audio signal paths, wondering if anyone else is this insane. Of course… too many to count.
