    Melody

    Some sweet timeless melody comes drifting Echoing down through the corridors of time Like an old abandoned memory Lost in the layered pages of my mind.

    I Like My Work.

    Someone asked me what I do for a living. The following is a letter I wrote telling him a little about my work history. He told me it is a  great story and would make a good movie. I laughed and said that it would gross fifteen cents at the box office. I said I could prove it. I...

    Lord Of Darkness

    A Scene From The Twilight Zone

    Today was a special day, my first day on a new job. Doing something that would be rewarding and please me. Lets call her Alice, my new boss. One of the "must-do" was never to smoke while I was there for any reason. No problem, I don't smoke that much to worry. Then it was do not...

    and she made a statement that made me think about some hard times in my life. I'm not sure what we were texting about or why but she said, "I'm glad for the tough times in my past because it's made me who I am today". It also reminded me of a story I read many years ago. I...

    The loss of a friendship

    that was part of a deeper relationship that was lost is in some ways harder to bear. It is harder because every meaningful relationship begins in friendship. It is the last thread of what was once a strong and vibrant connection. When that goes, there's nothing left - and yes...

    I watch the pencil carefully arc to paper.

    Fascinated by the coupling. A strong hand holds one in place while a gentle coaxes the other. I imagine a symphony of lead debris splintering off, disassociating themselves from the words that take shape. I assume the lead is flattening now and a natural hand adjust to...

    A Little Mystery

    Too much of something/the same thing causes it to lose it's appeal. It just starts to become over exposure. We've lost much of that delightful and powerfully erotic sensuousness and sexuality in both immediate gratification and blatant 'in your face' behavior, without the...
