Find Particular Stuff
… him who writes this stuff.
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.

Another quick post with a bit of previously-published flash. This one, a writing challenge but one with a twist. The challenge/prompt was a picture of a stone archway. There was no specified theme other than having something to do with … Continue reading
Leanne Cole does a weekly Monochrome Madness post consisting of all monochrome (mostly B&W) photos submitted by users each week. It’s not a contest, but a place for photographers to show their B&W work; anyone can submit photos and it’s … Continue reading
I’m in a time crunch and so I’ll post another one of my previous flash/short stories in lieu of coming up with amazing and original prose. It’s a story that’s buried in a post about writing and so unlikely it’s … Continue reading
There are always good days and bad days. I seldom never speak or write about bad days. “What?! You complain all the time!” some of you would say. Oh, I see the problem now; some of you confuse emotions with feelings. … Continue reading
On the face of it, most people don’t like change. This isn’t a scientific statement; it’s just my impression. I’m sure one can find articles arguing for or against that view but my experience is that people don’t like change. … Continue reading
There’s a narrative that has been irritating me more and more each passing day. It’s something I used to believe. It’s something that’s is at the cornerstone if not the entire foundation of our country’s identity. It’s the idea that … Continue reading
A few posts ago, I mentioned Wabi-Sabi and how tourists value “hand-made” trinkets over mass-manufactured trinkets. But, how does one know if something is man-made by a true artisan of the culture or man-made by cheap labor in a third … Continue reading
This being Sunday (I think — I’m writing this on Wednesday) I thought I’d keep it light and reward the few new readers who stop by with something from back in 2015 when I did a post about Romance. You … Continue reading
I mentioned views and likes and comments . . . what I didn’t mention is that I tag all of the Project 313 posts the same: doodles, humor, photographs. Nothing else. This goes against what most people advise as far … Continue reading
I’ve recently got reminded of Wabi-Sabi. Boy, if only the publishing industry accepted the idea, I’d be in great demand and have my stuff swamp everyone’s lives. Come to think of it, if that aesthetic concept had any merit, my … Continue reading
There’s been an interesting depressing shift in the way people discuss, report, debate, or otherwise explore pretty much any topic. I don’t know how many people know Ray Dalio . . . well, I don’t “know” Ray Dalio either. I’ve … Continue reading
I’m cutting this close . . . This is supposed to go live in less than three hours. I was a bit distracted by something odd; I had many, many messages letting me know of “likes” to the previous post. … Continue reading
This post is long (but less than 1,700 words) because it incorporates a short story. It’s fiction. Flash fiction. It’s the first fiction I’ve written in months. It’s kind of silly and not that well-written, but just ride the notion … Continue reading
I learned a new acronym . . . FoMO. Apparently, it’s a common condition suffered by many of today’s digitally connected individuals. For them not in the know, it’s Fear of Missing Out. I’ve done some reading and to me … Continue reading
