Consideration

A poem from Magdalene Aubergine... They say that we teach people how to treat us. I was reading about the poet ee cummings, that when he started out, his style was so individual, unique, unusual, that it was often questioned, and ridiculed. The biographer stated that ee cummings taught his readers how to read him,… Continue reading Consideration

Dig A Little Deeper

Over the course of the last two days, I've finally had a little bit of time to work on the book again, "Magdalene Aubergine." I keep thinking it's finished and then it grows. I don't know if it is turning out to be the book I intended to write, but it is the book I… Continue reading Dig A Little Deeper

Rural America, It’s Where Your Produce Comes From

I watched some news while I had dinner. One of the pieces was about a Berkeley Professor who made some not too bright, classicist, intolerant, ignorant remarks on Twitter, giving us another fine example of the many ways in which higher education often fails. What this Harvard educated professor said, among other things, was this:… Continue reading Rural America, It’s Where Your Produce Comes From

The Coca Cola Communist

The Coca Cola drinking communist thinks I look ridiculous. He is wearing black high top sneakers, that retail at one hundred and forty dollars. He says they last longer, than cheap canvas tennis shoes. He is wearing a black hoodie, with a label on it, from some designer, he says he doesn't care about that… Continue reading The Coca Cola Communist

What They Didn’t Teach Us in School, Carl Sandburg, Abraham Lincoln, and the History of the United States

I am continuing my reading of "Abraham Lincoln: The Prarie Years, The War Years" by Carl Sandburg. I've decided to share some of the content of this amazing book as I go along, as well as some of my learning from it. It is an incredible book, one of the best books I've ever read… Continue reading What They Didn’t Teach Us in School, Carl Sandburg, Abraham Lincoln, and the History of the United States

End of the Summer Stuff

It is the end of the Summer. I've been doing end of the Summer stuff. I don't feel like talking about writing but, I will say that I noticed, as I was working on something, that I was essentially writing the same story over and over again. I noticed this after watching an episode of… Continue reading End of the Summer Stuff

To Bloom and Fly

If you try to force a flower to bloom, prying its petals open, you will destroy it. If you let it be, to do what it does naturally without your "help," in its own time, in its own way, as nature intended, it will open itself to the world. If you open a cocoon before… Continue reading To Bloom and Fly

Forward

This isn't what I was going to write about today. I was going to write about dreams, about thinking positive, being happy, and dreaming bigger. I'm going to save that post for another time. Perhaps tomorrow. I logged on to my computer today and the first thing I saw was a headline about the shooting… Continue reading Forward
