An Excerpt, Chapter Thirty-Two of The Slick Furies

    Chapter Thirty-Two Talessia grabbed a cup of coffee at the little service station two miles up the road from the motel and buttoned her blouse straight. She had become too familiar with these places, the broken neon of the Chateau Devane, the gas station, its two pumps centered in the gravel parking lot,… Continue reading An Excerpt, Chapter Thirty-Two of The Slick Furies

An Unraveled Hem, Joan Didion

I've kept some kind of a notebook, or journal, since junior high. Thankfully, the majority of them have gone the way of the wind. I suppose that's a nice way of saying that I destroyed them at one time or another. I recall erasing every word one January, in some other life a million years… Continue reading An Unraveled Hem, Joan Didion

The Origins and Mythology of Red Line Wine, Some Relics and Memorabilia

I'm not necessarily particularly fond of sharing too much in the way of personal anecdotes with regard to story origins, idea origins, inspirations. I think that there was, or is, a certain age where there's kind of a momentary reveling in the adventures or exploits of one's youth as such, where we tell those stories,… Continue reading The Origins and Mythology of Red Line Wine, Some Relics and Memorabilia

Pull Together America

So, it has only been a week since I posted anything, it's felt like longer. Today President Trump signed an executive order the gist of which is that the Dakota Access Pipeline is going through.

Carrie Fisher. Resilience. The New Modern. How to Be Yourself.

Last night I watched the HBO sort of documentary, it was more personal than that, "Bright Lights," about Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher. It was an exceptionally well done, intimate, revealing, glimpse into the lives of these two enigmatic, iconic, stars. That sounds canned. I grew up watching old movies, was a fan of the… Continue reading Carrie Fisher. Resilience. The New Modern. How to Be Yourself.
