Turning Away

I suppose it has been a few weeks since I have posted anything. There were a lot of things going on, the details of which I will not bore you with. I have reached a point in my life where my path has diverged and I must choose which path to take. This was not […]

Cult of Immortality

I am alive. I am not dead. Through inference of my living and not dying, I am immortal. Or at least that seems to be the rationale my mind offers for why I remain unafraid of life threatening illnesses, car crashes, plane crashes, shootings, murderers and random accidents.  Even as the shadow of death looms […]

How Important is Privacy?

Today was a hallmark event. Today my 11 year old left her new diary downstairs in the living room. I picked it up (not realizing what it was) and skimmed through it. Afterwards I flipped to the front page where I read, “This is Haley’s diary. Do not read!” Just as I closed it, Haley […]

On Story Creation: How?

Alright, technically that title should be “On Plot Creation: How do you create yours” but too many words in a title is just, well, too much. On to the topic: As I was mulling over an idea in my head recently, I raked it over the usual coals. For me, whenever an idea for a […]

The List

For some time now I have been adding to a list of things to do that is ongoing in my head. I keep telling myself I will write them down because I will eventually forget, so at last, here is the list of things I will accomplish this year. They are in no particular order […]

The House Of Me

I haven’t written anything in the last week and a half. I was otherwise engaged in efforts to maintain my sanity. It was one of those weeks where everything was going along alright, nothing too difficult but I quickly found myself in a situation. It was like I was walking through a ravine and suddenly […]

Stripped Bare that I May See Clear

Let’s be honest here.  Everyone lies.  Some tell small white lies, some smudge a number just a tad, some make outright lies about their plans, some lie about their status, their job, their IQ – all to impress either another person or themselves.  None of these things are really of any consequence.  They are merely […]

The Plague Strikes

So… this week has been one trial after another.  It began with an ominous cough that sounded quite unlike anything I had ever heard.  It was loud, dry and should not have been happening at all.  It was my oldest daughter, coughing frequently. This alarmed me because she was currently on antibiotics for an ear […]

You Want It?

Getting what you want is not difficult. Let me say that again, “Getting what you want is not difficult.” The problem, for most people, is not the process of reaching their goal and getting what they want.  The problem is in knowing what it is they want.  What is IT? Society has convinced far too […]

Bring It!

Today I have chosen to do the seemingly impossible. Although chosen is a strong word when really I was placed between a rock and a hard place due to my own poor planning and procrastination.  I put off scheduling to take a necessary assessment test to begin a degree program.  Unfortunately for me, the deadline […]
