The Monday Night Movie of the Week

  Network. If you’ve never seen this movie, I’ll tell you that the May-December romance between characters played by William Holden and Faye Dunaway, is slightly less believable in this day and age, but that it is an otherwise incredibly brilliant bit of intended satire that has turned out to […]

Earthquake Weather

This implies that I smoke cigarettes. I don’t. I value my lungs. I used to smoke cigarettes, and I was excellent at it. Here’s the thing, I am a thinking person. I am also a feeling one. Shallow waters, I ain’t. I can create beautifully themed web layouts for myself […]

Don’t Fear the Reaper

BOC is one of my favorite bands. I wouldn’t know where to begin to tell of the impact and influence this music has had on my life, and my writing. But, I’ve got to be careful not to give away all my secrets. TS

Do You Have Monsters?

Do you have monsters? Apparently I had a lot of monsters I didn’t even know I had. Some of them were political, some of them were religious, some were ideological, some were reflections, some were old fears, and, some were actual people. After a while, for a while, alcohol was […]

Ballroom Blitz, Keep Calm

Photo of a woman drinking tea after a bombing raid in London during the Blitz (no copyright infringement intended.) Link.Β  Yesterday, (when I started writing this),I purposely, and purposefully, sequestered myself from all “news” related items until the early evening.

The Truth About Global Warming

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 to do […]

Beyond the Vanity

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 in the […]

This Strange New World

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 not luddite […]

Clean Water

So, I wouldn’t call myself an “environmentalist” unless home decorating counts. I think we’ve got some serious issues with regard to refuse, litter, polluting our waterways and thus, our water. […]

  This quote works on so many levels. Human beings are perfectly imperfect. If you’re still making changes, that means you’re still learning new things.

Changing Atmospheric Conditions

  So, I thought of an analogy for what being a writer sometimes feels like to me. It feels like being on another planet that very few other people have ever been to. They have their ideas about it, they have their assumptions, some of them even have these wonderful […]

get up. go on.

the only advice ever for dealing with jackasses is to ignore them. even when you end up in tears, don’t give them that either. sometimes easier said than done. sometimes dealing with jackasses temporarily turns you into one. get up. go on.

Changed

This is a good write-up by author Autumn Christian as to the changing nature of one’s writing as it relates to the changing being of one’s person, “I’ve Changed and So Has My Writing” by Autumn Christian. Along those lines, of note, sometime ago I watched a documentary about author […]
