Mercy. This blog has taken a long time. I started it three times, and each time so far, I didn’t say what I intended to say. Things are still in upheaval since my accident. The kids are trying to take advantage too. When they do their chores, they try shortcuts and, at times, not doing… Continue reading Can We Grow Up?
The last blog I published talked about writing, and I finished it before I had my accident. I went ahead, posted it with the idea that I would address the accident on this blog. A week ago, a potentially life-changing occurrence happened to me. I walked outside, lost my balance, and fell on the brick… Continue reading A Broken Back Means Your Dead, Right?
This last week has been a strange one. Of course, you have to know it snowed a little. Okay, a whole buttload. (That is not the actual name of a measure.

I write them because that’s what I like to read, the tenseness, the suspense, all of it. The creative juices that work as the story unfolds has extraordinary bliss connected with it… Continue reading Christmas for a Writer!
I am glad to see my Newsletter works now and equally delighted to see people sign up for it. I wanted to take a moment to say welcome, and I want to invite you to my website. It is a work in progress and will change from time to time, and of course, my blog… Continue reading How Deadly Is Covid-19?
I spent the last few days, even weeks, listening to some of the most incredible music ever composed. It’s all around us. Every generation added to the list from as far back as the dusty pages go. Indeed, even back further than written music exists. Universal music. Every culture, village, and group made their melodies,… Continue reading Why is Music so Popular?
There are so many things to talk about, so I tried to keep the subjects limited. Even so, I still racked up quite a list of items with which to yammer.
