Meals with Midgi: A reprieve

Wed, 04/22/2015 - 2:45am
I have been reprieved! After two weeks of lamenting (aka whining) about my toothache and the pending root canal, I learned on Wednesday that I no longer need a root canal. I feel like the doomed prisoner who got the call from the governor as he's walking down the long hallway to a final ending.

Wed, 04/22/2015 - 2:45am

My Corner of Alaska: Jerry's Rant

Wed, 04/22/2015 - 2:45am
One of the supposedly big secrets to success out there in the world has always been that tired old bit about location, location, location. Like all the other gems of wisdom though, it turns out that there's more to it than meets the eye. If you think about it deeply you find yourself being surprised at where it takes you. See that pop star diva come roaring off stage from a really good show. They're still shouting her name and calling for more. That gal is pumped, never more fully alive than at that moment. And at that very same moment, on the backside of the world, out on the far other end of the spectrum, the hermit sits, cross-legged, deep inside his mountaintop cave. A single flame flickers. He repeats and repeats the holy O-o-o-m. His smile is radiant. He is close. He can almost touch it. He is one more O-o-o-m from Enlightenment.

My English major brain told me editing wouldn't be difficult, just a list of to-dos. Somehow I thought the job would resemble looking over college papers to move an occasional comma or correct "then" to "than." Being the student editor of Tidal Echoes, the University of Alaska Southeast's annual literary and arts journal, has taught me I was wrong.
