I haven’t posted anything here in entirely too long, so I thought I should post an update to confirm that I haven’t died. So, here I am. I haven’t died. Actually, I’ve been neck deep in the formatting. I wasn’t happy with the first idea for the last chapbook, so I moved on to another […]Read More Generic Update – aka, look, I’m not dead after all!
I’ve been a terrible blogger again. I kind of feel like I’ve been starting pretty much every post like that recently, but it makes it no less true. I have a lot of things I should talk about, but I’ve been lazy about recording things, so I don’t. My GERD has been terrible recently, so […]Read More New Toy and Updates, because I’m too lazy to do those things in separate posts, even though I should.
The finish line on this epic chapbook project is in sight, guys. I’m working on the collection of short poems, I have the proof of the 10th chapbook on the way, and the 9th chapbook didn’t need any edits, so will be popping up on Amazon in short order. (here) Today, I get to share […]Read More New Chapbook: Dry Bones
I did mention I’m banging out the chapbooks with a goal of being done by year end, so two new chapbooks are going to share one post. They were released almost simultaneously due to the 2nd, miraculously, needing no edits once I got the proof. I’m mobile atm, so don’t have easy access to poems […]Read More 2 More Chapbooks: Kaleidoscope & Dead Leaves, and other poetry stuff
After a bit of reprieve and some time away, I am back in chapbook mode, plugging away at my goal of getting all caught up by the end of the year, and I’ve got to say guys, right now, my chances look good. I’ve just completed the sixth book, the seventh just needs a final […]Read More Chapbook: We Are Only Here For Now – Available Now.
I decided to write this one on the new baritone uke as an excuse to noodle around with it and get used to it. Ultimately, this song pretty much exists because I had two weird encounters in the same week. This happens to all of us sometimes, I think – where we have a totally […]Read More New Tune: It’s You
This morning, it was off to the car dealer for some repairs under warranty. There were two up sides. 1. My center console lid no longer flies open to smack my elbow. 2. Getting to check out a new park. I’m never in this area except for car things, so I relied on Google to […]Read More Photos: Perrineville Lake Park (Baird Rd Trailhead)
With daylight savings time fast approaching, this is very likely my last after work walk for a while. From November through January, it’s black as midnight out when I leave the office, which I am not looking forward to at all, though my body doesn’t seem any happier about trying to haul out of bed […]Read More Photos: Davidson Mill Pond Park
You know that saying, ‘do as I say, not as I do?’ Yeah, well, I know I said ‘no more ukuleles for a while’, but then I found a left-handed baritone. A LEFT-HANDED BARITONE, guys. You know, a unicorn. Anyway, I’ve wanted a baritone for a while, but haven’t shopped seriously because of the limitations […]Read More The Unicorn-lele! (aka: a left-handed baritone)
When my friend, who shall henceforth be referred to as “D”, suggested a hike at 6 mile run, he said we would not do the entire thing, ‘just the prettiest part’, and that that should be approximately 3-4 miles, so, as a group we all decided to go. 3-4 miles is a lot for most […]Read More (so much longer than) 6 Mile Run: Photos
