The Sequel

The home is quiet, and the coffee is strong. The chores are done, and I have zero obligations to the outside world on this glorious Sunday morning. I purchased my coffee creamer yesterday, so all is well on that front. Today, I sit in my lair, incense burning, lights dimmed, partaking in the sweet, sweetContinue reading “The Sequel”

Screeching Halt

“Gut feelings are guardian angels.”–Faye Brookes Had to slam on the breaks. Came to a screeching halt. From 90 to 0 in a blink of an eye. Not necessarily a bad thing, but a necessary thing. My call. I’ve found in the pursuance of a dream, stumbling across obstacles becomes a frequent occurrence. The pathContinue reading “Screeching Halt”


I’m suffering this morning. It’s my own damn fault… I should have paid better attention. Idiot!!! I’ve been doing my best to provide for those around me, and working on preparatory projects, and I often forget all about myself, and what I need to get through my day. And it’s always the trivial things IContinue reading “Cataclysmic”

Only I will remain.”—Frank Herbert Greetings fellow adventurers. I hope everything is well in everyone’s realm. These posts will be getting shorter, as the daysContinue reading “The War on Fear”

The Reality Paradox

“There once came a time in my damaged life, I was influenced to make a choice. To sit in silence, far from home, and listen for that inner voice. The subtle whisper spoke to me, ‘it’s time to get out of the box. The cage you choose is an illusion grand, a reality paradox.” —JSMContinue reading “The Reality Paradox”


“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.”–Oscar Wilde I’ve read a ton of arguments that go back and forth trying to describe similarities and distinct differences between “author” and “writer”. It’s a fascinating conversation. Does an author need to be poetic and flowery, overly descriptive, and long-winded, to tell a story? Can a good storyContinue reading “Storyteller”


First off, I wanted to take a moment to shout out to all the new subscribers and followers of my author Facebook page, and this blog site. Little by little we continue to grow. If you haven’t figured it out by now, I’m a little “different” and if you’re into that kind of thing, IContinue reading “Gratitude”

The Villain

“I like not fair terms and a villain’s mind.”–William Shakespeare I was an English major when I first attended college. I switched degree programs, after one year in. I came to a negative, self-defeating conclusion, adopted a quitter’s mentality, and convinced myself I’d be better off studying something else or investing time in something different.Continue reading “The Villain”
