Dear Social Media, I’m Breaking Up With You -or- Committing Cybersuicide and Loving It! 

Dear Social Media, I’m Breaking Up With You -or- Committing Cybersuicide and Loving It! 

I discovered the Internet way back in the 20th century. It was 1996 actually. I was a production assistant on a TV series and almost always stayed late at night to jump on the computer in our script coordinator’s office. I was amazed at the endless piles of information that was available at my finger tips. Of course it was dial-up back then so I […]

MacRae’s In Cuba 2017 -or- Sorry ‘Bout Your Eye, Jessica!

As I write this my 8 year old daughter is sleeping soundly in bed beside me. She awoke crying in her own bed telling me she can’t stop thinking about Cuba and misses it.  Flashback to last Friday (April 7th). My wife and I pulled the girls out of school under the guise we were taking them to McDonald’s for lunch. That much was true […]

The Fight To Be Creative -or- Why Is Nothing Easy?

The Fight To Be Creative -or- Why Is Nothing Easy?

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about a project I’m currently working on. It’s a children’s books I’m struggling to put together with a friend of mine… and I stress the word “struggling”. It seems that every time I go to work on the book life gets in the way – life or a lack of enthusiasm. I liken it to writer’s block but I’m […]

A Letter To My Future Teenage Daughters Re: Social Media -Or- Oo Baby, It’s A Wild Cyber-World

A Letter To My Future Teenage Daughters Re: Social Media -Or- Oo Baby, It’s A Wild Cyber-World

I noticed a post on Facebook this morning whilst wiping the coffee from my keyboard. It was by an actor friend of mine, Eugene Glazer. We worked together a million and eight years ago on the Warner Brothers TV series “La Femme NIKITA”. He was going on about all the inaccuracies , lies and fabrications that inundate the Internet daily. Many of the points he […]

Juliette The Gymnast -or- I Can Do That But I Don’t Wanna!

Backwards roll, front handspring, one hand cartwheel, press handstand, back layout with half twist, round off, cartwheel, tuck jump, backwards roll to pike, 180 split leap. Just beautiful! Of course I’m talking about the other kids. Mine is doing none of these. She’s the fiery little 5 year-old blonde chick lying on the mat in the middle of the gym like a bag of wet […]

MacRae Summer Vacation (2016) -or- I Know What You Did Last Summer!

KD MACK’S JOURNAL: VACATION – DAY 1: So far none of the other people in the neighbourhood have noticed I’m on vacation. I think I’ll keep it this way because it’s low profile and I’ve always wanted to use the term, “I’m keeping a low profile”. Went running this morning. Tried to beat my 5km time record. I almost succeeded but I got a call […]

Happy Birthday To Me -or- I’m Smarter Than An Infant

Happy Birthday To Me -or- I’m Smarter Than An Infant

Today marks my 47th year on this earth. On October1st, 1969 at 4:30 (Atlantic Time) I came into the world at 8 pounds, 14 ounces, 21 inches tall. Yes, 21 inches. My dreams of making the neonatal basketball team were dashed that day by 3 inches. Regardless, here I am, a lot taller, a lot heavier and with a helluva lot more life experience. It […]

Embrace The Chaos -or- My Kids Are Jerks And That’s OK!

If I had a time machine in my twenties and I used it to travel into the future to see what my life would be like today, as a father to two little girls… I might have run for the hills when I eventually got around to the time I met my wife. No, but seriously folks, fatherhood is NOT what I thought it’d be […]
