A blog about a life awakened and rejuvenated around Western New York.

The perfect day for a geek like me. I would’ve thought I’d have outgrown the awkwardness by now, but I’ve come to accept it as part of my charm. May the 4th.

I’ve always had a fascination with space travel and exploration. I wanted to be an astronaut when I was a kid  and I had come to sort of realize my dream; I had been a life long space-cadet.  This obsession with science fiction/space movies became the basis of the first stage play I had written, “Taking Up Space”. A lesson learned; reality scores major points!

Star Wars Day at the ball park, a tailor made promotion with the local heroes (Buffalo Bisons) uniforms done up in a Star Wars motif. Always a hit with the kids and spaced out adults alike. It doesn’t disappoint; it makes for a great night for all involved. Never underestimate the power of the dark side of the fourth!

May the Fourth be with you!
