Exergasia and Eustathia #AtoZChallenge

5 Apr , 2019  

If you haven’t guessed by now (or have failed to follow the breadcrumbs) this month’s poetry has mostly been based on rhetorical figures of the same names, and through these little verses, I attempt to provide examples (along with a little sly wordplay, as in the last verse).

Old Friends, Newly Met

28 Dec , 2018  

I have many friends who live in the little box under my desk. Now and then, I’m lucky enough to meet them, face to face, sometimes decades after cementing our friendships online. In 2016, I posted an interview by my friend Todd Kruse of artist Carl Yoshihara. Those two have taught me to appreciate abstract […]

A Quick Look Back on Things Worth Remembering from 2017

31 Dec , 2017  

It is always worth remembering – and reminding each other: #InDarknessBeLight. After saying “goodbye and don’t let the door hit you in the behind” to 2016, I signed up for the We Are the World Blogfest (#WATWBF). I thought that the blogfest sounded like a terrific way to counter all the negative news 24/7 and to […]

If we were having coffee


If We Were Having Coffee…

23 Dec , 2017  

Or tea, or #covfefe, I would put on a fresh pot instead of drinking this lukewarm swill from seven o’clock this morning. I’d Wish You All the Good Things If we were having coffee, I would wish you a merry Christmas, whether you celebrate it or not. I’d also wish you a happy whatever-you-choose-to-celebrate, all […]
