Thank you for visiting.  Check back often to review what I’ve been dreaming about and get sneak peeks on my compilations of screenplays, short stories, and “extremely short stories!”  I imagine there will also be some random thoughts strewn throughout as well.  Enjoy! Advertisements

I find myself at odds with ghosts from my past.  This week I take a big step towards personal growth in facing one of my biggest fears: The Walrus.  But not just any walrus – The Walrus. It all started when I was eight years old.  Now, I feel obligated to tell you, The Good Reader, […]

There is an old trick where when you can’t make up your mind on any given decision you are facing you count to three and immediately blurt out the first thing that comes to you.  They say that is your gut reaction.  The decision your subconscious directs. The decision your heart is set on.  It’s complete […]

On the first day of my most recent vacation I challenged myself to summarize the intent for this time away in one word.  For whatever reason pilgrimage came to mind.  Not resolution. Not fulfilment. Not preservation.  But pilgrimage.  Pilgrimage?  I don’t believe I have ever used that word in a sentence before.  But that is what came to mind. I don’t […]

I slept through the night!  Hazah!  A small win, perhaps, but a win none-the-less.  And with it came a pretty awesome dream.  A couple, actually.  But one that stood out in my mind.  I had a desperate need to get out of my house.  I don’t know why but I was frantic.  It was pouring […]

Time is an amazing thing when you think about it.  Time can stand still.  Time can fly.  Sometimes all you have is time on your hands.  Others, no time at all.  Time can be sacred.  Time can be evil.  Time can heal all wounds. Take a moment to think about the time you spend with […]
