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.

Despite my plans to get a jump of my Halloween writing, I’ve left it until the last moment. Same for the photo; not up to my usual self-imposed standard, but it will do . . . rather, it will have to do. … Continue reading
It’s been a while since I posted some Black & White photographs. No reason for the absence other than it slips my mind as I process most photos. Perhaps If I only saw in B&W . . . but even … Continue reading
While one stubborn aspen in the back yard is holding on to its leaves, the ones in front have shed theirs, and I’ve already mulched them. This afternoon, as the setting sun lit them up, I had the idea to … Continue reading
Here’s two preview photos of what’s coming up. Mind you, these are just for this teaser, processed on the phone using Snapseed and Pixlr Express. The photos on the full post will be processed in Light room and onOne, but … Continue reading
By the weekend we’ll be entering November. That was taken on the 27th of October – yup; flowers in the pots I have. I went outside to snap what are likely to be the last flowers photos of the season. … Continue reading
I went to the dentist today. Nothing major; just the biannual cleaning. He had a new table that he had gotten as a gift from a friend. The table contains vintage dentistry tools and products. The double and quadruple toothbrushes … Continue reading
Right now the temperature outside is 25° F . . . a big change from the last week or so, when daytime temperatures hovered in the 70s. This afternoon we had our first moisture in weeks, and in anticipation of … Continue reading
Still busy with work around the house, hoping to get my improved office up and running sometimes this evening (it’s early afternoon as I write this post, but it’s scheduled to go live tomorrow morning). As I feared – well, more … Continue reading
I’m busy with some work around the house, so my posting is taking a break . . . well, not much of a break since I’m posting. However, my main computer is not set up, and probably won’t be for … Continue reading
Yesterday’s post touched on the subject of writing longhand. One of the persons who reads my blog e-mailed me regarding my speculation that typing things out “keeps” up with the speed of thought better than writing longhand. She tended to agree, … Continue reading
. . . and I’m still trying to find a voice for my detective story. A plot would be nice as well, but for now I will settle for something that sounds like a detective story. A few people were … Continue reading
I came across a video earlier . . . this 18-years-old disabled kid is playing pranks on people. You can read about it HERE. Something occurred to me; the same thing that occurred to me when the show Scare Tactics was … Continue reading
For them who don’t know it, I shoot birds. My weapon of choice is the D7000, and my caliber of choice, weather-permitting, tops out at 400mm. Sunday was a beautiful day . . . so we went for a short drive … Continue reading
In 2012 I wrote I did not see the point of NaNoWriMo, as I thought I already had what it took to write a novel. Let me clarify that statement . . . I already knew I could write a 50K … Continue reading
