A sunset and a dream

Fiction Lake Huron swallows up the setting sun   A Poetic Start The rays of sleepy Sol, orange and pink and shades of red, shone like a blanket of tulips seen from afar, waving ever so gently, caressed by zephyrs in the gathering dusk. Pink tinged feathers of clouds striped the fading blue…

Music and I

Music Music and I have had a longish relationship. It all started when I was a little lad of ten, no.. hang on, a lad of four or five. After The Great Awakening it became even more of a.. Ah let's start over. (And yes, there's a video at the end...) The Early…

2022 – A Retrospective

2022 - A Retrospective If you were to look back at the year, perform a sort of retrospective of the year 2022, what do you believe would emerge from the welter of thoughts, emotions and experiences? But, how does one even begin to conduct such an experiment? How, indeed, do you process all…

Modesty

This Thing Called Modesty Prologue I started blogging in 2008, mostly short, tentative, stuttering posts. In 2010ish, blessed with some free time away from work, I was encouraged to write, so I sat me down and began. The lesson was swift and cruel. I found I had no idea how to write. Most…

Cranberry Scones

Fame I'm going to dispense with the story completely for this very simple recipe for cranberry scones. I did have people critcise the previous recipe for being overly long. It was a summer day, three years ago, when I was at my friend Twane's house. And he, being highly proficient in the kitchen,…

Great lines from songs

Background The other day I was experimenting with Kris Kristofferson's Nobody Wins and I was struck by this one line in the song. It seemed to just stand apart and emit this glow that could not be ignored. As usual, my mind, or whatever is inside my cranial cavity, wandered off into this…
