People have said that my blog posts are so long and drawn out that they doubt I could ever write three sentences or less and still be entertaining and effective. For those people, comic strips are printed in the newspaper every Sunday. Three sentences or less : ☑️ Catchy title : ☑️ Accurate picture : […]

The Fact of Fiction

How cozy do writers, much less anyone who dabbles in photography, music, or art, have it in today’s world as compared to one thousand years ago? One hundred years ago? Fifty years ago?

Am I The Only One?

There is something floating around in the air, and I cannot quite describe what it could be. Rage! Could it be rage? Desperation! Could it be desperation? Healing! No, it couldn’t be that! Paranoia!

Where Is All The Toilet Paper?

I’m not the type of person to stand on a social media soapbox when it comes time to vent, pretend to be a self righteous judge, or act like a specialist because a crisis pops up in modern day America. Most of the time, I bite the inside of my cheeks until they bleed because […]
