Book Review – The Host

Posted on September 26, 2008 - Filed Under Books, Everything and Nothing, Writing | Leave a Comment

Who else thinks silver eyes look cool? (from Wikipedia) In the year since I’ve been out of school, I’ve had a lot more time (and money) to pursue one of my true passions – Books, books, and more books! The Host is bestselling author Stephanie Meyer’s (Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse) first foray into the world […]

Things I’ll Miss Most about Jersey…

Posted on September 22, 2008 - Filed Under Everything and Nothing, Writing | Leave a Comment

As our British Overlords transition us to our new roles, chances are that many of us will be moved out of the Jersey City office. While that moment can’t come soon enough for me, looking back, I realize that crossing the Hudson every day wasn’t all bad. Among the things I’ll miss: The charming small […]

Man Versus Dog Days

Posted on September 21, 2008 - Filed Under Everything and Nothing, Writing | Leave a Comment

One warm summer evening, a friend and I were walking the city streets in search of delicious Thai food. Suddenly, she turned to me and asked: “Are you one hundred percent honest with yourself?” Like any good question asked under the stars, I gave this one serious thought, but it didn’t take me long to […]

In case you hadn’t noticed, I love New York City. The neighborhoods are fascinating, the day-to-day pace breathtaking, but it’s really the people who make it live and breathe, each with their unique stories. You never know which one of them you’ll encounter – not even on the way to work. For all intents and […]

Remembering the Eleventh – Seven Years Later

  Nothing makes your morning more memorable than time traveling over a bowl of Shredded Wheat. Only inches from me was an old copy of the New York Times, dated September 11, 2008 – seven years after the terrorist attacks which ended the lives of more than 2700 New Yorkers and others in a single day.

Desire #1 – The Underground

Posted on September 11, 2008 - Filed Under Writing | 1 Comment

The doors of the F train beckon, and they approach with a slow tango that sweeps them into the middle of my car; two people in a world entirely of their own making.

New Look!

If you’re reading this, you’ve probably noticed that the Roving Hearts theme has completely changed. Do not adjust your TV sets – I’ve decided to try something new. Personally, I think centering the content makes the posts a bit more readable, and the two sidebars make the various links a bit more organized. Many thanks […]

In the beginning, there was an end…

Posted on September 5, 2008 - Filed Under Writing | 1 Comment

A great story often begins with an ending. If the whole point a story is to ask the question “What if?”, then the conclusion is the answer, and the discovery of an important truth. I believe I’ve found a good ending to begin with. Wish me luck!
