I have no idea what I’m writing

In the penultimate post from “Creative Week”, we continue to talk writing. As you will see, however, much of the time, I have no idea what I’m writing. So, let’s set the wayback machine to almost 10 years ago. Gosh! I can hardly believe it’s been that long! But, there it was, “Black Monday”. My… Read more »

Writing in the right lane

Kind of confusing, being I’m a lefty. But, in most respects, that’s exactly what I’ve done throughout my writing “career”. Just like in my drawing (see yesterday’s post), comics were a big part of my inspiration. Also, Grandma. Yup, strange but true. So, let’s take a trip during “Creative Week” on my road to writing… Read more »

Have art will travel

Day two of “Creative Week”! What’s in store today? How about some more tales of my artistic adventures. Specifically, how, during this period, I am always with my trusty sketchbook and pencils. Everywhere I go, hence the title, “Have art will travel”. So, I mentioned yesterday that I only had one art class in my… Read more »

In the beginning

It’s been a while since I did a theme week. Frankly, I’m tired of politics and general rambling. So, I think it’s high time to bring another one to the blog. Recent events are stirring my creative juices (more on that in Friday’s post). Therefore, without further ado, I present “Creative Week”. The first installment… Read more »

Why I still have hope

I’ve been having this long-running debate with various friends and family members. It’s my contention that Trump supporters are not stupid. Nor traitors, blind or dumb. As further evidence about corruption in and around Trump’s people surfaces and poll support doesn’t change, it takes a toll even on me. And then something remarkable happens, which… Read more »

Getting beat up by a dead dolphin

Yes, even by the standards of this blog, that’s a strange headline. But, it’s not metaphorical or allegorical or any other “ical” type of thing. It’s totally on point. It’s a short tale to see how I’m getting beat up by a dead dolphin. The primary driver for this story is a dolphin. But the… Read more »

Spicing up a friendship

This tale begins a long time ago, during my former adventures in the mythical land known as Corporate America. Some people from that land embark on a journey to a fabled destination referred to only as “lunch away from work”. I was one of those adventurers. This is the story of how that journey begat… Read more »

Leaving me eye and dry

Okay, no new news here! You already know I’ve got an obsessive personality. In fact, I even mentioned it in a post this week. Hmm. I wonder if posting about obsessive behavior is obsessive behavior. Anyhoo, here’s a post about how one of my obsessions is leaving me eye and dry. So, first of all,… Read more »

Must…have…more…shiny objects!

The recent circus surrounding Donald Trump is not surprising. If anything, it confirms my opinion of him. I take care to avoid impugning his intelligence. In fact, his cunning is quite formidable. He gets all the help he could ask for from a media that cannot resist. They must…have…more…shiny objects! If one looks at Trump’s… Read more »

The lure of the internet

Last month, I spent an inordinate amount of time on a new forum. Chatting. Discussing. Posting. Eventually, my body decayed and lack of food and sleep caused me to die of malnutrition. Okay, the last part is only a probability, but it does paint the lure of the internet. The danger is greater for someone… Read more »
