A man stopped me
on the street, and
asked me; “Sir,
could you change
a ten?” “I sure
can.” I took out
a black felt tip
pen, and put on
a mustache on
Hamilton’s face.
“Here you go.”
He said, “I wanted
to know if you had
change for a $10.00
bill, not deface it.”
“Oh” I say to the
man. Silly me.
Then he called
me an asshole.
“Yup” I told
him, and have
been called
Fictional short story.


Treat those who are good with goodness,
and also treat those who are not good
with goodness.Thus goodness is attained.
Be honest to those who are honest, and
be also honest to those who are not
honest. Thus honesty is attained.

Lao Tzu

Name Change

I changed the name of my blog. It is something I’ve been wanting to do for sometime. For the past 2-3 days, I was jotting down different titles, and then went through the process of elimination. Friday night, I changed it to: “A Wandering Mind,” but after looking at it and thinking about it, changed it to : “A Pondering Mind.” So, “Don in Massachusetts” is history.
