In one day I embraced mortality twice; surely, my libation limitations can be excused this evening!* Besides, the two male cousins before me, busy with setting up our pool table, have earned my trust, now and forever. … Continue reading Mountain Song

Friends In Warm Places

Even into the darker blue, the Gulf waters felt too hot. Surely there's a cold spot somewhere, I thought. I wanted to swim out further to find that magic place, but I needed a spotter.

Endings leave … Continue reading Instead of “Why Me?” Can We Do “What If?”

Happy Anniversary, Johnny Saucedo! WE DID IT!

My first book signing. We ran out of books. I actually had to run out to my car for the two books I had in the backseat; luckily, leftovers from an earlier attempt at guerrilla marketing. The last fourteen months of my life living dollar to dollar so I can get published, and now I'm holding 10s … Continue reading Happy Anniversary, Johnny Saucedo!
