THE BOOK OF YOU THIS TIME

Who can predict the future? There’s no book that tells the tale. If you know someone who says they can predict the future, feel free to ignore them. This blog doesn’t come from the future, it’s right now. Maybe a little history of days past mixed in, but it always circles back to today. Now. […]

Dylan Song For 2018 Mid-Term Elections

Come senators, congressmen Please heed the call Don’t stand in the doorway Don’t block up the hall For he that gets hurt Will be he who has stalled There’s a battle outside And it is ragin’. It’ll soon shake your windows And rattle your walls For the times they are a-changin’.  

Humanities: Way Of Life Or Waste Of Time?

  What comes to mind when you hear the word Humanities, when a friend says they’re going to college to study Humanities?   Ask around and get back to me. I did it and came up with a few examples.   1-What are humanities?   2-Aren’t those the hippopotamus cousins that live in the Florida […]

AUTHOR PHOTOS WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS? Pt.3

    Demonstrate how a book works?   You can hold it, turn pages, but a book works in other ways.   They hold doors open, shine light, give hope.   An author thinks they’ve done one thing, but a reader takes it another way, which is the magic of book. We get to make […]

AUTHOR PHOTOS WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS? Pt.2

    Exercise your laser beam eyes?   Nothing says “buy snake oil” either in print or bottle, than an expression that includes laser beam eyes.   This author looks like a button downed English professor forced to read WR121 funnel essays year after year. With that in mind does he have laser beam eyes, […]

AUTHOR PHOTOS WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS? Pt.1

    Do Not Make Direct Eye Contact?   This man looks like he might be blind, which explains the eye contact part. The other part is what an author looks like from different time periods. There’s little difference in the region under a beard from any period.   If Mt. Rushmore for writers needs […]

CALIFORNIA JAM FROM 18 TO 62

    What was the hot ticket in 1974? California Jam. Just ask anyone who says they were there.   It was the West Coast Woodstock without the brown acid, Altamont without the murder. Just a nice gathering after all the dust settled and music took a turn.   My wife found her ticket to […]

A TIME LONG AGO AT A HIGH SCHOOL FAR FAR AWAY

North Bend Oregon High School, class of 1973. What’s so special?   Like later generations staking their claims to, ‘the first digital generation’ or ‘the first paperless generation’ or ‘the first generation raised on video games,’ the generational niche of 1973 is ‘the first modern generation.’   Born of the roaring ’50’s with TV dinners […]

FACEBOOK WINGS ON AMERICAN AIRLINES

    I stood across the concourse, the airport hallway, from my check in studying my boarding pass with Group Nine printed on the bottom right side.   Group Nine is last to board, last to sit, and last to find an overhead bin for the carry-on.   Luckily my wife and I were flying […]

MESA ARIZONA, CENTER OF THE UNIVERSE

    Where are you right now? Do you wish you were somewhere else?   Instead of working on the wish list of where you’d rather be, take a good look around.   You may be in the center of the universe, like Mesa Arizona.
