the sands of time

the sands of time

Sometimes it hits me just how much some of the people in my life have changed over time, something that has become glaringly apparent in recent years. But then I wonder… Have they changed? Or have they always been this way? Did I just not see it? Did they just hide it until it now? […]

flummoxed

flummoxed

I inadvertently fell down a rabbit hole this morning, just by reading an about-me style page. It was less a biography and more of a slide down into a conspiracy-theory and hate-filled hole in the ground. There was an entire  diatribea bitter and abusive speech or piece of writing (a better word there isn’t to describe it) […]



the undeniable meh

the undeniable meh

I am so tired lately that it’s zapped me of motivation to do much of anything but chill. Which is not very helpful for the creative process and writing, which is a necessary part of well, being a writer. Physically tired, mentally tired… all of the tired! I think most of it is because of […]

evolving, part I

evolving, part I

The last few years have changed me. Maybe, at least in part, that’s the price of aging. The “with age comes wisdom” thing. Perhaps that is part of it. But I think a bigger part of it has come from both within and without, the price of the Trump years. They were exhausting for me, […]

So much change…

So much change…

So blogging definitely fell by the wayside for most of the last two years. I can’t believe it’s been so long since I last posted. A lot has happened since then, life-changing kind of things. Since my last post in March of 2017, I’ve published four books, four novellas, one short, and I’ve been in […]
