he suggested that it was too nice

a day to work,. i did not mind.

had two good days with him,a small

child growing.

it was warm, a busy day, with folk

on holiday.

place, i wonder if you

understand what that means.

this does not have a title,

does not really say much.

Are You Judging?

Are you judging others- are you giving your opinion strongly on the actions of other people?

We see it over and over, somebody saying something to the effect of “Well, I just can’t believe he/she did that! That’s something I wouldn’t be caught dead doing!”

No matter what, we can never get inside…

Dream Stealers

They'll steal your 
dreams 
if 
you let them: 
hijack 
your knowledge processes 
through 
exported education; 
leave you 
with a loss of self 
imbued in 
academic privileges; 
seduce you 
into a collusion in 
your own 
cultural demise; 
make you 
question your very extinction 
into…

McLeoding Thoughts

My thoughts 
are unruly sheep, 
unable 
2 be 
herded 
into 
a neat mob; 
instead, 
these stubborn rams 
rule 
me, 
resisting all attempts 
at droving 
w/ the singularity of 
McLeod's Daughters'
determination.

. sunday again .

you know those few days so busy,

much to do and eating sweets in the rain.

when all is small boys and peacocks.

the door groans, it may be a creepy

place, yet all the hedges are good.

all goes quiet again, so smell the perfume.

note the jasmine growing and know

that some things come again.

sunday.

Where Ar You Looking For It?

Where are you looking for it…your happiness?

If you’re looking for things outside yourself to make you happy then you’re going to be disappointed. Situations change and so do people. And if you notice, when you look for happiness in material things, as soon as you get the thing you want so badly- you’re onto…

If Only I'd Been This Conscientious in High School

I have no patience. 

I sent my manuscript to some beta readers. What I didn't send was a deadline to finish their notes on it. Is that even a thing, can authors trap feedback into a time frame or is that rude? I'm trying to remember how long it's taken me to read a fellow author's draft but I know it's not long. Three or four days, tops. Because I know they're waiting on me and because I'm a Type A personality, a disease not covered on Web MD.

In high school there was always a…

Car Stuff Coming Out My Ears

Today I feel a little bit like I've been beaten up. Visited my car. Pretty sure it will never drive again. It doesn't even power up. All I do is talk to insurance agents, and get told about x-rays and gap insurance. I hate driving every time I get into the rental car. I look at everyone driving and I SEE them looking at their phones, and talking on their phones, and picking stuff up off the floor of their cars, and looking into the seats next to them, and I just want to scream. I'm a…

Happy Saturday!

Enjoy your Saturday! Do something nice for yourself today. Or, even better, do something nice for somebody else.

Go watch a sunrise (or sunset). Go to a park with the kids. Get outside if you can and just take it all in. It’s relaxing. It’s fun. It will make you smile.

If you want to mop the…
