To Thine Own Self Be True

I’m putting the final touches on the book, “The Edges of the Rain.” This has been a tough one. I’ll expand upon that when it’s time, suffice it to say I’m very glad to be wrapping it up. Here is where I’m going to take a moment to […]

The Edges of the Rain

Some thoughts on current events in the world, I don’t know how other people deal with trauma, cope with reality, with being in the world. The doors to madness are too much reality, and not enough of it. The doors into madness are laced with too much philosophical […]

To Be Happy

I’ve been exceptionally busy lately with no end to that in sight. I haven’t done any writing or editing in at least a week. So it goes sometimes. I was taking something of an unintentional “moment” as it were anyway, to catch my metaphorical breath. I follow Architectural […]

On This Valentines Day

  One of the most wonderful things within the many fine and good examples that Bruce Lee left us with, is his example of inclusiveness. Despite being met with prejudice throughout his life, he seemed to hold no such feelings in his own heart. He continuously broke with […]

The Slick Furies.

I’m super tired. Is that the best time to write a blog post? Hopefully this won’t be too rambling. I have surpassed the sixty thousand word mark on the edits/re-write of the vampire novel. I have approximately sixty-six pages of the original text, about twenty thousand words, to […]

Through Another Lens

This isn’t a documentary about a photographer of New York fashion and, or, street fashion. It is a documentary about an artist, whose medium happens to be photography, a man to whom fashion is art, and that is how he photographs it. Through his lens, a world of […]

Feeling Good, Miss Nina Simone.

I watched a documentary last night about Nina Simone, “What Happened, Miss Simone?”  I had watched part of this one before and become distracted. “Feeling Good” was the first Nina Simone song that I ever heard and I loved it. I’d been a Billie Holiday fan for years […]

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 […]

The Elements of Stylization

Oh no, spares us your meanderings about style. That girl ain’t got no style. ( Should I be saying woman? That woman ain’t got no style?) Strunk and White, I own a copy and from the peanut gallery, “Yeah and you obviously never read it.” Well, truth be […]

Gypsy

  Gypsy Remember the “family vacation?” Not the high-end modern version so often portrayed on television and in films, luggage and airplanes, but the old school, load everything in the car and drive there family vacation? Roadside rests, gas stations, fast food or the deluxe meal at a […]
