What is This and Who Wrote It?

fishingOff the leash is one way to interpret retirement.

Some of what I learned during a long career in the media and public relations services business is reflected in the Digital Deception series of posts and in the occasional rants about publishing, online audiences and digital marketing.

I wrote the Growing Up in the 50’s stories from the unique perspective of someone who was born just hours before the start of that decade. I am thus well positioned to describe the phobias, prejudices, politics and lifestyle of those times as seen through the eyes of a child.

There’s lots of pictures here of Paterson, Newark and the Jersey shore. That reflects where I live. And the sports commentary comes from an avid New Jersey Devils and New York Mets fan.

History is a popular Off the Leash topic. That has something to do with the history of my education at Kent State and NYU. And then there are posts just about some of the things that I do like reading and traveling.

By the way, the guy peaking over the fence on the home page is my dog Pepper.

    Hey Ken, do you remember who at the Y taught you to swim? It might have been me or one of my friends.

    Hi Ken — happy to meet you over here from a fellow blogger, Susan Cooper at “Finding Our Way Now”. It’s nice to see a fellow easterner, having grown up not too far from the Jersey Shore in the suburbs of Philadelphia near Chester, PA. It’s been many years since I’ve lived back there but have many fond memories of Route 13 on the way down to Ocean City and the Eastern Shore.

    Hope to read more and connect sharing our stories. 🙂
