A Funny Thing Happened…

In the words of the Fresh Prince himself, “Now this is a story all about how my life got flipped-turned upside down…” However, there’s one anecdote from my very recent past that is sure to rival that of Bel Air royalty. It all started on the morning of Saturday, September 10, 2016. All day, I received countlessContinue reading “A Funny Thing Happened…”

I Wrote Another Poem

Almost Home As I close my eyes and try to drift off to sleep I hear the hum of the engine and the whoosh of the road under the tires. I feel you take my hand and kiss my knuckles, whispering “we’ll be home soon.” I feel the steady tremble of the car as itContinue reading “I Wrote Another Poem”

One of My Favorite Recipes

Here in the USA, Thanksgiving is tomorrow so I wanted to share with all of you my favorite mac & cheese recipe! It’s very easy to follow and customizable to fit your own unique tastes.

As is the case with most people, the places that are local are often the least explored. WeContinue reading “Nature is a Healing Space”

How are you?

Hi, thanks for asking. Truth be told, I’m not doing very well. I have tried to keep this blog free from reminders about the COVID-19 pandemic and the impending United States election, but as with all things I try to avoid, they have finally caught up with me. As you know, a plague has descendedContinue reading “How are you?”

Of Inspiration and Mentors

Listening to Neil Gaiman talk about writing with Sir Terry Pratchett and creating Good Omens together is a story I will never get tired of hearing. Especially when he compares it to having Michelangelo “ring you up” to go paint a ceiling together. It reminds me of how I became great friends with my favoriteContinue reading “Of Inspiration and Mentors”
