Banish me to a dark corner, chain me to a keyboard, and I will gladly be a word slave. I'd sit there all day, with only an occasional demand for a coffee break.
I'm a would-be (wanna be) author, middle aged, fairly repressed, but extremely BLESSED with an amazing wife and two brilliant boys.
For several years, I've been haunted by images of the starving, drug addicted, victimized teens of the streets. I write about them a lot.

This morning, I’m taking a break The choice is scarcely mine I’m nearly clawing to the forefront of an exhaustion meltdown And Pandora’s on the fritz blinking off..on my J N Howard kills my brain every time, but not now, not this morning; I’m taking a break; I’m […]
Here is the conclusion to this little heartburn of a tale. Thanks for everyone’s enthusiasm. If you aren’t up to speed, Part 1 is here. BTW – If anybody is curious, the lyrics contained in this story are from Greg Laswell’s “Comes and Goes”. His stuff is amazing! […]
I’ve been reluctant to post this one in partial form, but it’s reached the maximum length I like to tolerate in a blog post. Hopefully it compels enough to draw some to part 2 Photo by mysoulmission.org Like a sliver in the chest. If he was asked to […]
