Writing forces me to examine my views as cold words on a page.
My views are borne out of my experiences on this world.
My experiences are slowly adding to the short story that is my life.
While I still can, I choose to share some for anyone who might find them useful, or perhaps just entertaining.

Because I am pressed for time, I decided to split last week’s trip report into two posts, with the first half dealing with the “going there” part. “What trip is he talking about?” “Did they go somewhere?” “Who are you, … Continue reading
I was working on a different post, but a comment on an old post of mine gave me pause. The post is “I Want To Kill Myself“, and the comment related to something I said. In that post I made … Continue reading
Again, from the blog A Side of Writing, another writing prompt . . . Not your mother’s lullabies (Writing Prompt #39) The Hunter Denise softly closed the bedroom door, and made her way to the kitchen. The bottle of wine sat … Continue reading
You hear that a lot. “If I had more free time”, “I have no free time”, and sometime “I don’t have time”. The last is patently false. We all have plenty of time; we always have all the time there … Continue reading
Monday, March 19th, marked the anniversary of this blog. Two Years. Two hundred and fifty two posts (252), not counting this one. I had planned big things in celebration of the momentous event; an in-depth interview with the author, a … Continue reading
As I work on my latest post, I take up the challenge of writing prompts on the A Side of Writing blog. These are usually 5-10 minute’s efforts, but the second one today is about a 30 minute effort. Again, … Continue reading
Folks might have noticed a lack of participation on my part during the last few days. No blogging, no e-mails, no snarky comments, no FaceBook . . . but before a National Day of Thanks could be set up, I’m … Continue reading
I came across the blog A Side of Writing, and subscribed to it write away. Get it? . . . write away, right away . . . never mind. One of the many useful things writers can find on the … Continue reading

Dear unborn children of the 100 homophobes who tweeted that they would murder you if you are gay,* I’m sorry. I’m sorry that you got shitty parents. Unfortunately it happens sometimes, though in a…
One of the blogs I follow is http://rubicorno.wordpress.com. He is an iPhoneographer. Per his own description: iPhoneography (or Mobile Photography in a wider sense). iPhoneography is about shooting and editing your photos only with an iPhone, usually with a Low-Fi sentiment … Continue reading
Something I wrote today at lunch. I have an idea for a story that grew out of this short action scene, and it has been kicking around my head for a couple of years now, going nowhere. I finally decided … Continue reading
As opposed to many short posts, I figure I will do fewer, but longer, posts. This is exactly counter to what they say you need to do to build readership to your blog. The way I figure it, people can … Continue reading
A few days ago I wrote a post about censorship. As an aside, I made a comment about my opinion of Holocaust Deniers. It was not flattering, and in fact stated they are no more than a waste of flesh. … Continue reading
Melisa had seen one . . . I had heard one . . . but yesterday a small flock invaded my back yard. Belying the snow still covering the yard, the Spring Bird has arrived. No, not a bird … Continue reading
I’ve been avoiding writing opinion pieces, commentaries, and putting down on virtual paper my observations of the world around me. It taxes me, and as Jayne would say, damages my calm. Yesterday something happened that spurred me to expend some energy … Continue reading
