I can’t begin to say how frustrating it is to start a blog and immediately end up dragging myself in a different direction, but it does happen. Trust me, it’s only temporary.
Hey, what’s the point of a blog entitled “The Chaos Machine” if there is no chaos?
I’m in the process of moving to Colorado from Florida. The decision was made quite suddenly, after I realized I’d been promising myself this move for three years and had done exactly nothing. As I write this post, my estate sale is taking place on the other side of the wall from where I sit. Most of my possessions have been sold – certainly most of the largest ones – and in a few more days I’ll be free to leave for my new home.
I have my cat Sammie to take with me, and getting reset for some serious writing will take more time than I want to think it will, but … “nothing is as simple as it looks, and everything takes longer than you think.”

I’m happy to challenge your thinking, point out a bunch of stuff, and ask questions, but you guys are going to be the ones who are going to have to live with the consequences of your actions (or lack of them). I have to consider myself part of the problem, as I turn 60 this month. So let me just say: I admit it. We fucked up. We blew it. And the older generations simply can’t fix it.
But you can. And the reason I’m addressing the millennial generation is: the older generations clearly can’t see the trees for the forest. Perhaps they’re too busy making paper, I don’t know. But it’s obvious that even the current governing generation has failed at, well, pretty much everything.
