Return To Sender

I haven’t published anything on my site for some time and actually thought I was finished with it. I have been writing a lot but not publishing. It just seemed everything I wrote was so negative and jaded that I didn’t want to put it out there. We are surrounded with the negativity of COVID19, […]

When Perspective and Ideology Diverge…

Imagine, for a moment, that you are ten years old and lying in a hospital bed. The kid in the bed next to you is eight and you are watching the life drain out of him. In less time than it takes to slip a face covering on the life had evaporated out of your […]

Speak Up

I truly thought my days of writing were behind me. I still continue to write for myself however I haven’t been sharing it. When you have no one at home to discuss how your day went you either bottle it up or write it down. Bottling it turns it into a disease, I know I […]

The Erosion of Rights
