It's Thursday and it's the only Pandemic-Thanksgiving I've lived in my short 49 years on this planet. I'm sitting in a kitchen that is not in my house, but in a house that still feels like home to me. Today is a day when families in the United States traditionally gather and eat too much … Continue reading Getting Older and Giving Thanks
I looked, Dear Readers, and noted that the last time I saw fit to let the words fall from my brain bucket and onto these virtual pages was on the day that our nation typically celebrates its independence. That day now has a different, more special meaning for me, but that's not really what I'm … Continue reading Failing NaNo – 4 Years and Counting
This may not be an easy post to read. It wasn't an easy post to write. Or at least, as I'm only three sentences in, I am certain that it won't be an easy post to write. You see, it's a post that is as much as reaction to something I've recently seen as it is … Continue reading Little White Lies
Today is a special day to me. For some it's the day that a guy was crucified and then came back to life three days later. I'm not getting into religion or messiahs in this post. But I do want to spend a few minutes talking about a hero.It is borderline cliche to point to … Continue reading My Father’s Eyes
We are in some strange times. For example, if I keep going the way I am currently headed, you will get one post on this blog every month. For some I know, that's probably one post too many. That's fine. You don't have to read it. For the other 7 of you that stop by … Continue reading My Kingdom for a…Hug?!?
Greetings my friends. As I do so often on these posts where I have been the absentee author, I will start off with an apology. I know that you have many options out there when you are looking for something to fill the 73 seconds at the end of your Outlander binge-fest before Netflix asks … Continue reading The Magic of Imposter Crab Chips
Self-discovery is a painful process. Or at least it can be. Sometimes. Look, all I'm saying is, what you're about to read is me trying to reason some shit out in my head. Some shit that's been rattling around for a while. Weeks. Months. Honestly? Decades. This is some 'A-ha--THAT'S WHY I'M SO FUCKED UP' … Continue reading Painfully Cathartic
This post will likely be rushed. I’d apologize, but at this point, the quirkiness is more than likely something you have come to expect from me. It’s rushed for a couple of reasons. The first being that I have 28 minutes left of my lunch and feel like at 14 days into the new year and … Continue reading A General Malaise
I had a friend call me today, fuming. I consider myself a good listener on most days. Considering that I was out of town on a work trip and doing absolutely nothing in my hotel room, my listening game was on-point.She recounted the exchange that sent her off. I will spare you some of the … Continue reading Marriage Material??
I actually have no idea if this is actually the 17th blog post I have written without a title. It could be. Probably isn’t. Not sure that it matters.What does matter is that I am actually writing. This is the third blog post I’ve written in as many days. One of them is going to … Continue reading Untitled Blog Post #17
