The People in The Towns…

Because, throughout the world, the needs, and wants, of the people in the towns and the suburbs, are not the same as those of the people in the cities…. “One illustration of this cultural divide is that most modern, progressive social movements and protests are quickly endorsed by […]

Enjoy Every Good Thing

Okay, two weeks into the new year, I have deleted my twitter account and, I won’t be back on there. I was trying to think of it as a “necessary evil,” but the truth is, it isn’t necessary. It is the Tower of Babel. The more I thought […]

Saying Goodbye to 2018

I’m going to begin this post with an excerpt from a writing of Joan Didion. I’m telling you this only so that you’ll know that isn’t to be the entirety of this post. “Some years passed, but I still did not lose the sense of wonder about New […]

Thankful

Here’s my message to writers and artists, to anyone in a creative endeavor, who might be feeling discouraged… if it is really your dream, in your one and only heart of hearts, then don’t quit. It’s that easy and it is that hard, that simple and that complicated, […]

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, […]

Can You Hear the Quiet?

I’ve been doing some serious thinking about the world lately. Can you hear the quiet? This serious thinking isn’t a new thing for me. This bout of thinking began with the drug induced suicide of a rock star. I’m referring to it as drug induced because we’ll never […]

It Is Still Beautiful. Chris Cornell.

Grunge is the music that my generation created, whether the label of “grunge” is one that was met with approval or acceptance or not. Passionately philosophically divested in many ways from the heavy metal and “pretty” hair bands and glam bands of the heyday of “sex, drugs, and […]

That 70’s Sound

I haven’t rambled about music in a while. I’ve been editing stories lately, pretty much all of my previous writing, and organizing my work. Regardless of what I decide to do with any particular piece of writing, suffice it to say that I am… particular… about some things […]

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 whoโ€™s really a gentleman, even if sometimes she doesnโ€™t act like much of a lady. She […]
