    Squirrel Hunting

    Predawn stillness broken only by my footsteps. As soon as I settle in, facing north toward a grove of oaks, beside a sycamore tree, in a spot I scouted yesterday, the insects and tree frogs resume their symphonies. I doze and dream lightly as I wait for the sun to rise. The trill...

    Standing By Dad

    I recall as a child an occasion when I became lost in the woods. I had stayed out too late and it had gotten dark, not full dark mind you but the darkness of the forest at twilight. It was cold, and I was alone and afraid, and much like any child would, I panicked. I made it home...

    Ramblings Of An Unknown Madman

    This morning I drove into the sunrise, this evening I drove into the sunset. In between I had one of the best days I’ve had in a long while. It occurred to me on the way home that I have never seen a sunrise I wasn’t happy to see, whether it signals the end to a fun night or...

    Venting The Stresses

    I don't know how to scream out loud. I don't know how to express my feeling in words from my mouth. All I can do is write. I never knew that writing would give me such pleasure. It is all in my head, finding a way to channel the outputs. I have tried talking, but never worked. I...

    She turned off the lights,

    looking out of the cold window. The fog had rolled in again, just like this morning when her father dropped her off, almost causing an accident. Her bare feet shiver each time they press to the polished concrete floor, solid, yet smooth. She hopped up into her lofted bed, the...

    Writing Is An Understatment…Writing Is A Passion.

    To say I like to write is an understatement. Now saying I love to write is more like it…Been writing since I was a kid! Only recently have I sat down and started editing my first book in my series. Only because I lost the files a long time ago…Now I have them back the frist...

    Who Am I, Really?

    Yesterday I was driving home reflecting on the events and conversations of the day. And I began to think about me and who I am.  I thought, "I am...,  I am....."and the thought came to me, "I am fearfully and wonderfully made."  (Psalm 139:14) And I thought, "Fearfully?" Why...

    Right

    A writer writes. The magic of words, no matter the language, theme, tone, dialogue. No thought wasted. A true writer simply writes.

    The Walk

    She walked along the beach as the sun was rising. The day was going to be hot so the water felt cool on her feet as she moved down the sand. The air was fresh and it tinged with salt. The few birds overhead were calling out as they scavenged. It filled her mind with music as she...

    Normal: conforming to the standard or the common type; usual; not abnormal; regular; natural. Not a bad word or concept, kind of a neutral thing, when used appropriately. Who is to say what the norm is? Is there a vote no one told me about where we decide what’s normal and what...
