As a general rule, I am not one that likes change. I like to float along in the same sea of comfortable, warm and cozy consistency of status quo. Slowly gliding down peaceful, familiar waters, doing similar, well-known, patterned things. If left to my own devices, I imagine there is at least an even odds chance that I would still be a golf pro, still living in the small apartment above the pro shop, still working six days a week. Miserable, and yet, somehow content in the numbing, yet comforting, sameness of it all.

His father had just purchased a new surround system and we watched Speed on Laserdisc. (You can read more about that system here.) From the opening seconds – with the elevator cabling clanging in the background behind me – I was totally enthralled with the technology.http://johnsciacca.webs.com/apps/blog/show/5826959-discovering-a-slice-of-the-sciacca-history
