I’ve been depressed for a while. What month is it? Midway through March? Yes, a while. I couldn’t figure out why. I slipped into a funk sometime after the holidays. I couldn’t put my finger on what’s been at the root of bumming me out so much. […]
Photo of a woman drinking tea after a bombing raid in London during the Blitz (no copyright infringement intended.) Link. Yesterday, (when I started writing this),I purposely, and purposefully, sequestered myself from all “news” related items until the early evening. While tending to a few chores, I decided […]
This one starts kind of slow, but once it gets going, it’s worth the watch. It has an interesting message, one for the times we are living in. Loved it.
Sometimes, when I’m getting too serious, or I’m getting too bogged down over serious issues, I’ll just let myself run with it until something makes me laugh. This morning’s news cycle provided a treasure trove of ridiculousness. What sent me over the top was this news story about […]
socialism: noun, 1. any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods. 2. a: a system of society or group living in which there is NO private property. b: a system or condition of […]
It’s about greed and money and power. I think, all scientists should be skeptics. I think, the nature of the job demands it. Greenland used to be green, now it’s covered in ice. Iceland used to be covered in ice, but now it’s green. Human beings had nothing […]
So, yeah, a… don’t know where to begin. I haven’t read the “Green New Deal” in its entirety, but what I have read of it is, on the surface of it, is terrifyingly ridiculous, and that is the point of it. The “Green New Deal” calls for […]

I have a few legitimate, common sense, questions about the proposed “Green New Deal” being fronted by some politicians. As I understand it, the “Green New Deal” would call for the elimination of the use of all fossil fuels within ten years. That’s your car. My husband drives […]
Working on the cover for Bones, or COLB, I became inspired. I’ve been thinking about this book for years, recently, however, several of my published stories became unavailable online, and I decided they need a home at The Starlight Deluxe. Of all my many webpage incarnations over the […]
The next book, the new book, Covenants of Lingering Bones, will be available soon. After much rigmarole, going so far as to set up the book on another publishing platform, to really check it out, I’ve decided to stick with Amazon/KDP publishing. It got down to some things […]
I’ll tell you what optimism is, in a world where a fake issue of a real newspaper was distributed by activists, and went viral, and where the media got it wrong again, because they didn’t check the facts, or get the complete story, before they ran with it, […]
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 […]
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 […]
A bit of wisdom gleaned from today’s reading, though certainly it has been said before, paraphrased: If you want golden eggs, don’t kill the golden goose.
I’m considering so many things, thinking, about this strange, new, world, we’ve found ourselves in as we are now in the future. This is an interesting interview, this quote, talking about the 24/7 internet, etc. “…The societal question is more complex, although I think it’s users themselves and […]
