Magdalene Aubergine is Alive!

Magdalene Aubergine is now available for purchase. One of the pieces in the book is "Spaghetti Jesus," a ramble the title of which was prompted by a billboard that I could see from my bedroom window for a while a long time ago. At the time I remember thinking, "That looks like... Nah. You're slippin'… Continue reading Magdalene Aubergine is Alive!

Elizabeth Wurtzel, and How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb?

There are two Pat Benatar songs stuck in my head right now, both from the same album, "Tropico," which is my favorite Pat Benatar album. I had a copy of "Tropico" way back in the day, bought from the local music store. It was scratched, right out of the sleeve. Couldn't return it. So I… Continue reading Elizabeth Wurtzel, and How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb?

A Subtle Shift in the Light

There are, I believe, pivotal moments in every life. This idea is one that has been much explored in literature, philosophy, art. What a blessing it is, I think, to be gifted with self-awareness in such moments, to be able to feel the subtle shift in the energy of the universe. Of course, sometimes that… Continue reading A Subtle Shift in the Light

When Half-Gods Go

Here we are, can you believe it, going into September. Where does the time go? I'm still reading Carl Sandburg's big book of Abraham Lincoln. I've no words adequate to do it justice. There is no doubt that the United States would not still exist, our Constitution would not have been preserved, were it not… Continue reading When Half-Gods Go

I have a new motto. For some years now my motto has been, "Get up. Go on." It is a good and fine motto. There is nothing wrong with it. I may continue to employ said motto if and as needed. Now I've got a new motto, "Dream bigger." Dream bigger, because it is a… Continue reading New Motto

Do You Have Monsters?

Do you have monsters? Apparently I had a lot of monsters I didn't even know I had. Some of them were political, some of them were religious, some were ideological, some were reflections, some were old fears, and, some were actual people. After a while, for a while, alcohol was one of my monsters. (Sober… Continue reading Do You Have Monsters?
