In The Lingering of November

Almost December, I wonder what it will bring with it, however much I try not to. I think about the things we think we always wanted, the ones we got, and the ones that got away, in the middle of the day, in the glaring light of dawn, in the fading twilight, in the moonlight in the dark night, I

Gold Mine, These Are the Words I Managed to Save

During the fall months of 2008 and on into 2009, and on…for a while, reality slipped away from me.

Pull Together America

Written on January 24, 2017 So, it has only been a week since I posted anything, it has felt like longer. Today President Trump signed an executive order the gist of which is that the Dakota Access Pipeline is going through.

Standing Rock: Does This Look Like A News Story to You?

Calmly, as a matter of fact, ask yourself, Does what I see in these videos of what is currently happening at Standing Rock, look like a news story to me? Not whether or not you agree with the protestors or what is happening there, simply, does it look like a news story? Does it look like a big news story,

Unlimited

Unlimited You know what a woman wants? A badass son of a bitch who can make the trip and still treat her like the most precious being on the planet. A man who’s really a gentleman, even if sometimes she doesn’t act like much of a lady. She wants a proper rescue. She wants gallantry and chivalry and decency, chemistry
