Yesterday I was tired and sat on the couch most of the afternoon mindlessly watching the much-criticized …Continue

It's not a room, I'm trapped inside my mind. Maybe I can look out the windows.
Oh no, the eyes are closed and I hear snoring. Wake up you fool, we need to get out of the house, to spin around the block, look into the darkness, into space and feel alive.
We need to get out of here before I lose my mind, hello?
Is this thing on?
I don't think it is!
I might be trapped here forever and ever or till one of us of…Continue

Did anyone ever think there would come a day when there would be a resident at a nursing home wearing a Run DMC tee-shirt?
Well it’s here folks. It’s here.
The nursing homes are full of the flower power children, dead heads, Alice in Blunder Lands and pretty little people who all just couldn’t live the sixties for what they were, no we had to take it to that next level and well here we…Continue
The old house had been built before even my grandparents had even been a dirty thought in their parents' mind.
It loomed on the hill, portrayed harsh against the darkest sky. But back in its glory day, before it was abandoned for more modern convenience, it was a palace to five families..
It held parties for the elite of the area, including three presidents, a king, queen and three princesses who stated that if they could, they would die in…
There are now over 2,300 gnomes that now populate the hills and flats of Gnome Mans Land, California (Oakland). Until recently, they had pretty much managed to keep their presence a secret but then word got out in 2013 and there were fears that even Gnomeland Security might get into the…Continue
Getting feedback on a story. I usually write with a partner. We argue with each other, get inspirations to solve problems that the other has created, and support each other when the story seems bogged down.
But when I’m writing alone, there is no built-in feedback. Friends and family will only put up with so much. They’re not going to read rewrites. And they can’t be counted on for truly critical…Continue

In the night, the soul cries out, reaches out, for someone, anyone. The darkness embraces me, whispers her name in my ears, to bring back the tears to my eyes.
The memories come back; the good, the bad, the indifferent, those special…Continue
The air eagerly grasps my face as the sound of my heart accelerates inside my ears. I struggle to breathe in the over-whelming rush as my body feels like it is free-falling along the twists and turns of the oncoming track. A gasp somehow escapes my pressed lips while my…Continue
Cars, smartphones, jewelry, and cash are among the many valuable items most people expect thieves to target. Not many, however, would think to lock up their pregnancy tests or Tide laundry detergent. Yet, these everyday, ordinary household products are among the most commonly stolen goods.…
Yesterday the Easter Bunny was apprehended by the border patrol in Ogdensburg NY. The furry rascal was attempting to bring over 10,000 Kinder Eggs in anticipation of Easter morning. The US has had a ban on candies with embedded toys since 1938, and although they are illegal it does not stop citizens…
At the age of 62, I no longer have interest in listening to a male voice tell me what I can or cannot do. For once in my life, I want a companion that is silent and loving, so I have chosen my dog to share my remaining years.
My dog eats what I give him and does not demand that I shop for probiotics or buy him organic items. If I choose not to take a bath one day; my best friend will not care, and actually prefers the smell of freshly cooked meat over the scent of…Continue
For one day only regular minions who were not chosen to be Google Glass Explorers during the first round of beta testing, can get…Continue
Talk about a nosedive!
Looks like this might be the corporate fail of the week, maybe even year, or one of the largest airline carriers finally found the alternate ending to Lost.
There’s a party in my mind and I hope it never stops.
There’s a gathering of gentle beautiful people who I have met over the years and they are finally starting to find the voice that is leading us all to consciousness. For some it was a motivation out of our own self driven destruction and for others it’s the achieving of something profound and magnificent.
These memories can’t…Continue
When I was a child one of my hobbies was to call strangers and ask them if their refrigerator was running. Some knew the answer and told me they were not going to go and catch it, where others were punk'd as they say now. More elaborate jokes grew out of that timeless joke until modern generations either…
Somewhere, someplace, I lost my mind. Possibly left it out in the garden, somewhere, but it's too dark right now to go look for it and besides, I'm doing quite fine without it.
A teacher once told me, "You'll make a fine door stop someday!" and I think I'm getting closer to…
Since I'm a female, I generally keep quiet about this subject as women are supposed to be super clean. Of course I practice good hygiene, but I seldom wash my 8 identical pairs of ripped jeans. I began to do this before people like Anderson Cooper and other fashionistas admitted on…Continue
Dr. Seuss's 'Star Bellied Sneeches' analogy continues to play out in the most absurd ways. There is now a disturbing breed of thinspiration that pressures women and girls to pursue a “thigh gap,” which is defined as the space between one's thighs. Online, users are posting aspirational…Continue
