    No Sanctuary For the Insane

    Hello my pretties,    I may be crazy, but this is the way things seem to me:    Tolerance is a vastly overrated and universally misunderstood word. People who claim to be tolerant are quite intolerant, usually of people who don't see things their way. For...

    Hello my pretties,    After Jen died, after I got H off to the airport (still crying after two days), after I got back home, I fell on to my couch, exhausted beyond any tiredness I had ever felt before. Dusk was arriving, throwing weird shadows on my walls, almost...

    My Toys, All Dusted Off

    Hello my pretties,    Early morning thoughts seem to party-crash my psyche, uninvited guests to the pajama party of my moody meanderings. Sometimes they are the life of my early-morning life; at other times, they can be boorish and rude, especially when they tell me things...

    Sleeping With Dragons

    Hello my pretties,    I can't stand walking on brown squares, especially the ones at school. When I'm caught in the halls with the kids, I'll zig-zag my way to my room, and the kids stare at me. Strangely enough, they have come to respect this OCD behavior and do get out of...

    STILL I still see her.

    When my mind starts to return from its nightly primordial sojourn, I see her, a lovely and smiling chimera drifting towards me much too slowly. It is close to 4:00 A.M., but I am bombarded by impossibilities as the rest of my world sleeps. Jennifer approaches, and I see all of...
