• It Is Finished

    January 28, 2020 by

    I’m not a writer who assumes anything. I thought, at 3 a.m. I’d still be dreaming about a lovely blue and white middle-eastern vase in the process of being sold, but stolen by dice-yielding thieves. This was my dream story fifteen minutes ago before being rudely interrupted by a full bladder. I cannot assume anything… Read more

  • Which way?

    January 26, 2020 by

    It was necessary for me to turn right because I forgot where I parked. Exiting the office store with more items I planned on buying, that turn seemed the correct course of action because the dinged up pylon over there looked familiar. Not that yellow, concrete, scuffed pylons are rare, mind you, but this one… Read more

  • Bejeebers, I Hate Being Cold

    January 24, 2020 by

    …That’s putting it kindly just in case someone underage is reading this. I don’t appreciate shivering under my ten layers of clothes whose main job this time of year is keeping me warm. I’m not plagued with an internal flu bug ravaging my innards (that I’m aware of), nor do I have ice cubes hanging… Read more

  • Benevolence

    January 22, 2020 by

    CNN posted, back on September 17th, 2019, an article featuring James Anderson, a plumber in the British town of Burnley. Originally found on Facebook, the story gained momentum once folks found out James provided free plumbing services to a 91 yr old lady fighting leukemia. As the article, written by Dominic Rech, continued: “The bill,… Read more

  • Buttons, Switches, and Knobs

    January 19, 2020 by

    I started thinking about buttons, switches, and knobs yesterday. My apparent inability to properly function inside an automobile I’ve owned for years started the whole thing. It’s not like I was nervously nestled inside a US F-16 Fighting Falcon at a local drive thru scanning the skies for any Russian MiG 21 Fishbeds on my… Read more

  • Smooglers

    January 17, 2020 by

    Books I’ve read in their entirety, stacked cover to cover from the floor, wouldn’t reach my shiny belt buckle on even a bad, slouchey day. This doesn’t speak well of my lliterary background, does it? An organized pile of music manuscripts I’ve managed to prop in front of my eager piano eyes, however, would reach… Read more

  • Love lost, Love found

    January 15, 2020 by

    It fell from grace. Odds are pretty good, however, that wasn’t her name. You know, the girl from whom this heart fell. “Is she missing it?” A great question … while also asking myself if it would be appropriate to stop time, just for a few seconds, and capture the moment in my phone’s camera.… Read more

  • The Loving You

    January 12, 2020 by

    May 5th, 2019, sometime in the early morning, there was a need to write this. Today, eight months later, there is a need to share it … not knowing the purpose of this moment. You, however, do have a glimpse into your reasons for this “now”. Be open to possibilities of the unexpected in your… Read more

  • Keyed Up

    January 11, 2020 by

    Almost .08 cents a piece is about my limit. Didn’t realize this was my maximum price per cheap, China-made key holder rings until today. Had they not been color coded, my ceiling would have been far less AND, if the previous little impish bag of key holders I bought two weeks ago wasn’t missing, there’d… Read more

  • The Potter

    January 8, 2020 by

    “So now what?”, said Clay to the potter. A fair question. After all, Clay didn’t ask to be thrown on the potter’s wheel. Minding his own since the creation of time, the situation, now, is quite different. Clay was only recently unearthed and his question was warranted. Very justified, to be sure. He was taken… Read more
