I’m from the south. We don’t hide crazy. We park its ass in a rocking chair on the front porch, serve it a cocktail (or possibly sweet tea, if one of the cousins is currently on the wagon between rehab-tours-of-duty) — invite the whole clan over, and spend the better part of a Sunday afternoon…

I got Creel blood (the hematological equivalent of demons) from my father’s paternal side running all through me — ALL through me. Beetlejuice? Anyone? Folks who sell those highly-colorful-yet-possibly-fictionalized crests (the ones in twee little shops at tourist-type locations) tell me this fish-baskety moniker comes from a dealer’s choice of Irish, Scottish, or English ancestors. However,…

I’m a May on my mother’s maternal side. Those who poke around Mormon research libraries tell me that the name dates back to an early Anglo-Norman-Irish (can you say “mutt mix?”) emigration — could’ve picked it up anywhere along the way from L’Hexagone to the land of the Angles to Éire. It cracks me up…

I was delivered from down off the Mount (just like a pair of stone-flipping-tablets, though far less biblical in nature) on my father’s maternal side. Now the fine folks who track such things tell me that my ancestral peeps could have acquired this lofty rubric from either our Scottish or English forebears. Regardless of origin,…

Okay, so I don’t work a 9-to-5 job — that doesn’t mean I’m not proud of the things I’ve accomplished in my career. But some narrow-minded folks out there believe that if you’re not ascending a stereotypical vocational ladder in the socially-proscribed manner, it doesn’t count. (These people are morons.) In defiance of “The Man,”…

I remember the first time a well-meaning leadership-development-pal suggested that I needed a “bio.” Upon asking why, I was told, “It highlights your accomplishments and talents. It makes you appear credible to your clients. It’s the core of your branding. ” (Yeah. I’m pretty sure this AIN’T what she had in mind!) Putting The ‘Mad’…

They say “it’s the nuts that make a family tree worth shaking.” Well if that’s true, I have one of the most worthwhile bits of arboreal genealogy currently planted in the terra firma. We wear crazy like a badge of honor — and whoa buddy, do my ancestors have a lot to be proud of…

Putting together a magazine/newspaper story or TV/radio/web segment? Struggling to find interesting interview subjects? Folks who have something new and different to say? Who’ll captivate your audience and send your readership/viewership through the roof? Well here I am — fallen right into your lap, you lucky dog, you! As a professional-organizer-cum-simplicity-coach, entrepreneur, full-time RVer, world…

Ever since birth, folks have called me “inventive,” “imaginative” — “annoying.” (Your stereotypical hyper-active bouncing-off-the-walls-brain-asploding-with-too-many-ideas type.) I can’t help it. I come from an artsy-crafty sort of family. My depression-era parents placed a high value on creativity as a life skill — not just for the inherent sake of beauty, but as a survival technique…
