  • A break from the heat

    “Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass. It’s about learning to dance in the rain” Vivian Greene Today, Sunday, is cooler and breezy. The heat and bugs were tough to take this past week. Overall I feel like it just slows down my progress in life. Yet I must work with it,…

  • All Quiet

    All is quiet on a Monday. I’ve had one visitor to Money Island in the past 24 hours; except of course the three guys who make a daily drive through past my house. That’s a whole different story. The visitor is a disabled veteran whose son works on an oyster boat. He came down to…

  • The day I dumped Facebook

    I spent time formulating a ‘go forward’ strategy that includes “going dark” on Facebook. Ifaced at least three lawsuits based on Facebook and I’m weakened and battered.  Blinkist helps.

  • Launch of “After The Drowning”

    The book “The Drowning of Money Island” by Andrew S. Lewis is scheduled for release by Beacon House Publishing on October 1. I have nothing to do with that book project but I hope to be involved in a follow-up project. For now , this web site is just a collection of personal notes in…
