December, 2021

And what awaits us in the next year? As an ever-hopeful soul (put that scowl away!), I'm hoping 2022 is calmer, shorter, less fretful than the last two years. I want people to care about others, to take care in how they interact with the world, to enjoy something in each moment of every day. … Continue reading December, 2021

R&R Month

Or Season? Anyway, I'm on sabbatical, sort of. Doing a course, resting the hands, collaborating on a short story (will give details when it gets accepted into the anthology), and daydreaming in a sunny spot in the garden. So, that's all folks, at least until December, then it depends on the state of play with … Continue reading R&R Month

A Truth

#blogginginsights from SaltedCaramel. A deep sigh, followed by a few keys tapped. A deeper sigh. My thumbs are healing. So slow. Too slow. How can a writer not write? I'm with Franz Kafka. I'm a monster, grumpy, suffering severe bouts of COF Syndrome (that's cranky old fart syndrome in case you want to use it), … Continue reading A Truth

More than Coffee: Memories in Verse and Prose by Lauren Scott

This highly recommended and quick read is a compilation of a number of Scott’s personal and precious memories conveyed in both short prose and freeform poetry. A lot of those memories come with the luxury of a hot cup of coffee, but not all. They capture bits of time from idolizing Barbara Streisand as a kid to camping in the Sierras, and lifelong encounters with spiders.
