There Is No Natural When It Comes To The Labyrinthine Of Fear

  “The purpose of that place still continues to elude them. Is it merely an aberration of physics? Some kind of warp in space? Or just a topiary labyrinth on a much grander scale? Perhaps it serves a funeral purpose? Conceals a secret? Protects something? Imprisons or hides some kind of monster? Or for that … Continue reading

What’s Yours Is Mine And What’s Mine Is My Own

  “I almost feel sorry for her now. So easy to feel sorry for someone whose life is full of such tasks and aspirations. Lying here, in her place, on her bed, my head on her pillow, it is all pitifully clear: Emma is the engine of this home, the person who propels it forward, … Continue reading

Children May Be Small, But They’re The Biggest Test Of Patience

SUMMARY When your son wakes you up at 3:00 A.M. because he wants to watch Caillou, he’s an a-hole. When your daughter outlines every corner of your living room with a purple crayon, she’s an a-hole.

Fifteen years ago a family was inadvertently bombed and killed by coalition forces on a mountain side in Kurdistan. As usual the … Continue reading

Every Post You Make, Every Link You Break, I’ll Be Watching You

“In any number of locations around the world the unthinkable was happening: traffic management systems were malfunctioning causing a multitude of accidents; payrolls were paying the wrong amounts; bank accounts were being frozen for no apparent reason; heating systems were coming on at the wrong time and power grids were inexplicably going on and off … Continue reading

A Vile Tale of Intersteller Shenanigans; and Voltaire Too!!!

“Life is not always figurative. Sometimes it’s relative, other times prejorative, and once in a while vindictive. Often, however, life is real – dammed real.” When I first read Candide I was amazed at how funny something so tragic could be. That was one of the first books I read that broke through some internal … Continue reading
