Websites and Art, Oh My!

I love this free blog! I can walk away from it for a year at a time, and just when I remember it’s here, I find fresh joy in typing a new post! I’m not sure what it is about coming back to my first blog, but there is something magical for sure!

Time has flown since the launch of

Awake In The Dark turned out to be a great outlet for discussions based on the metaphysical, spiritual, physics, science, nature, philosophy and so much more. The site is being revamped once again, but feel free to check out if you like to talk about what it all means.

2013 was also an excellent year for my fine arts portfolio. Not only did I paint more paintings in any one year alive, topping my all time personal best, but my level of work was raised to a new set of heights. I’m a little more rooted and focused now in oil painting, before there was more of a blend of mediums, but now my true passion is oils. At least at the moment, I always reserve the right to get into a new creative venture, I wouldn’t want to limit myself now would I? My artistic side drove me to launching a fine artist portfolio found at Http:// is aimed at showing my portfolio and also offering fine art based services for hire. and

That project lead me back into doing web design again, which naturally translated into the launch of which is focused on web and internet technologies consulting, graphic design, web design, internet marketing and sales strategies, audio editing, video editing and multi-media with the potential to one day be a full blown ad agency with a new take on doing business in the 21st century. The goal is to teach businesses how to shift their approach to more of a natural business approach, which improves overall flow from attracting new customers, to creating new services to essentially getting your business out of the groundhog-day style rut they tend to fall into after a period of becoming complacent. The Orion Web Consulting methodology is a one of a kind approach to doing business that simply isn’t out there yet and will yield un-precedented results. I am so very excited to launch this venture because it is going to help so many people leave behind jobs and careers that don’t suit that to pursue new ventures online and through local business and Orion is the shining light in the darkness lighting the new path.

Until the next blog, be excellent everyone!

The Schmafka Blast is now live, and I can get back to writing about other things on my blog. I’m relieved. Getting back to the discussion on baseball, hockey, current worldly affairs, entertainment news and technology is just what the doctor ordered.

Phillies Fans:
How amazing is Hunter Pence? What a superb addition to the team. His strong right handed bat adds depth and forces pitchers to pitch to Ryan Howard. That’s what we’ve been waiting for! Another excellent addition by Ruben Amaro

Charles Minguez

My esteemed colleague Charles Minguez, of launched a new blog this week. His focus is on covering topics that span Music, Buddhism, Food and Technology.

Why did Apple choose Twitter over Facebook?

Apple and Twitter playing nice, interesting. Steve Jobs has been known to keep us on our toes, nothing new there. I wonder what this means for Twitter? I’m guessing big things.

NASCAR’s Jeff Gordon wins SPRINT CUP at Pocono

June 12, 2011 Leave a comment

Jeff Gordon wins! I must admit, it’s been a few years since I have paid any attention to NASCAR. No fault of NASCAR’s, I just focused my interests elsewhere. Anyway, at that point in the game Jeff Gordon was a big up and coming player, ranked just behind Dale Earnhardt in popularity. Everyone liked Jeff because he was fast, and he took risks so he won a lot and was fun to watch. Of the little that I remember about NASCAR, Jeff and his driving is one thing I don’t think I’ll ever forget.

I remember going with my uncle up to visit Pocono Raceway. We went up there the day before the big 500 race. We wanted to see the cars up close, and we surely did. What a cool experience. I’ll never forget it. In addition to seeing the cars in all their gory detail, and also getting to shop at the driver’s personal concession trailers, I was able to take a tour of the infield and pit. Mega cool. Total VIP treatment.

We traveled by tunnel, just as the cars do, to get out to pit row. You could smell the tire rubber and feel the heat coming off the warm asphalt and the cars roared like the biggest thunderstorm there ever was. You could say the race was in the air and the drivers not only could feel it, they were wearing it in their bones. I never thought of racing from this perspective before.

Watching the cars make time trials was probably the absolute pinnacle. We made sure to grab really good seats for that. The main event. At least, the main event that afternoon. I’m not going to lie to you, we kept waiting for that one freak occurrence where a driver would speed into a turn haphazardly and lose control. No telling what to expect from a race, that’s one of the allures. I guess we had all secretly hoped that we’d get to see a crash or a multi-car pile up around one of the inside turns, preferably near our seats. Now I’m not saying that we wanted to see anyone hurt, we just wanted to see a little action. Is that too much to ask?

Anyway, I was glad to hear a familiar name won today. Not only for Jeff’s benefit, but if a modern day NASCAR superstar won, I might have never thought about this great memory today.
