The Light Of A Thousand Points

I was a young Republican once upon a time. In the eighties, I loved Reagan, Prince and mall girls. Not necessarily in that order. As the years went by, my philosophies would change according to the education I was getting from the world I was busy growing up inside of. I voted for George H.… Continue reading The Light Of A Thousand Points

Turns out, my lost mojo was on ice

Okay . . maybe it wasn't lost after all. But admittedly, it has waned over the last few weeks. Blame it on the weather or James Comey's new tome, but whatever it was . . it was getting to me. One of the drawbacks to being a passionate individual is that the ebbs that switch… Continue reading Turns out, my lost mojo was on ice

There’s a reason the important things are priceless

I'm an ad man's worst nightmare. That's because I know better.

And then the Irish Mafia (Karen Craven of… Continue reading There’s Something About Mary- A Prompt Challenge

Like Rocks For Chocolate

I ain't much for popular opinion. I can't remember the last time I fully trusted the tally of a widely held opinion. This isn't a contrarian gallivant, myopic bent or some degenerative condition that rhymes with Larry King. Nah, it's just the truth in my lovely bones. A truth that cannot shut up, even when… Continue reading Like Rocks For Chocolate

Meta-Monday (A Writers Challenge Prompt!)

Prompts are push-ups for writers. It's an exercise that tones the creative gut by cutting away the fat. Not all prompts are created equal. There are good prompts that challenge you, and then there are prompts that will leave you balled up in a corner, laying waste to a package of Oreo cookies. I dig… Continue reading Meta-Monday (A Writers Challenge Prompt!)
