moral pancakes

MORAL PANCAKES Now it is Halloween Weekend, and I am staying close to home, top floors of a tall building tucked into The Tourist Trap, in downtown Seattle. We might say, “Flying Fish” and throwing fish and dealing with smelly hands and lots of...

first love

first love FIRST LOVE   For a while now I have been chased by something, catching up with me in baby steps, and in graduated degrees of concern. In my head that I am almost over with a year of difficulty, but it could also be said, that we...

wind breath cough

WIND BREATH COUGH It is time and I have been thinking about this for a while. Life and Death and Sickness. It takes time for this to sink in. A lifetime, perhaps. And so I will let the words flow, and think its possible, I could write a...

high places

HIGH PLACES I don’t know where you start out with a blog like the one I have on my mind today. I think I will shout out some names, and follow the obvious avenue of reproach for those who much take that path. Name Dropping. Why does he even...

not impressed

NOT IMPRESSED   It is the change of seasons and I am looking around for my long sleeves and dual layer jeans. Am done with you and your skimpy style and rump. Changing for a while, and need hot soup and something meaty. Not saying fat...

bunny white

BUNNY WHITE   Owning things is just a distraction from the real purpose of being a human on this planet. And it is easy to say such things if you read books and your meaning is hidden deeply within each utterance that comes to the surface...

we belong together

WE BELONG TOGETHER When I was younger I was flippant about so many things. Thought my manhood would stand up and front just about anything I wanted, or wanted to do. Never had a dull day. Not good looking, but had a certain charm that comes...

THE PRESENT THE OTHER

Many people will walk in and out of your life, but only true friends leave footprints in your heart. To handle yourself, use your head; to handle others, use your heart. Anger is only one letter short of danger. If someone betrays you...

the other woman

THE OTHER WOMAN We all know what is good for us. That is the goal to live a life of knowing, what is good. And so the opposite is the knowing of what will get us in trouble and not be good. So that is a general way of saying, “Even though we...

Slightly Twisted

SLIGHTLY TWISTED It is fall and the weather is changing. One day it is cold and the next is partly open and sunny sky. And now I have a cold, and have had it for a while. Am doing all I can to let go of that stuffy head and dripping nose...

The Challenge Comes

THE CHALLENGE COMES   The challenge comes when you reach that place where you pass the point of no return and can’t go back and do over one of the major disappointments in your life. Starting a blog in this manner makes you wonder,...

MOONBATS ON MY MIND

MOONBATS ON MY MIND Silly Rabbit I am this morning. Woke up late, as it is Saturday and Weekend. Have my fantasy about what time should be about. Woke up. Made some tea. Decided that I would sit in my chair, open the drapes and look out...

Mixed Influence

MIXED INFLUENCE Start out with the idea of my blogs and my life being a mixed bag. “Rubbish.” Well that wasn’t my first thought. Here we are in September and tis the season for football and rough stuff. “How Rough?” And I say each to his...

arrested decay

ARRESTED DECAY So this is one of those blogs inspired by the title: Arrested Decay. At first I thought it would be about Ghost Towns in California. Bodie, California. But now I am on to something else. And this is kind of like the week and...

Different Rules

DIFFERENT RULES Each day comes at us in a different way, and when the day is over and we are still standing and talking and doing the daily analysis, it is ok to say. “Different Day, Different Rules.” And that is my blog for today. Different...

Flash Of Brilliance

FLASH OF BRILLIANCE I am working on a plan to start over with something brilliant. Brilliant as light and colorful. And it occurs to me, its possible and a stroke of genius to try something new. Seattle, when I live has a nasty habit of...

RUSE DE GUERRE

RUSE DE GUERRE   I think it is good to do something different, now and again. But not sure if doing the different over and over again serves any purpose other than to disturb the mundane and push boredom aside, but for a moment. I have...

Plush Beds

PLUSH BEDS Have been thinking about my life and realizing that it is a good one. Seems I have the perfect package and just need a few more reminders of all that. You see I live at water’s edge and look out on shining blue waters with snow...

Moving Along

MOVING ALONG Moving Along. That is the theme for a blog I am writing. Am just in the assembly mode, putting bit and pieces together to see if its something I will post. And it the past, I would just write and post. And was lax about...

Cloud Room 1975

Cloud Room 1975 Maybe going there serves no purpose in 2009 but sometimes I just do this. I regress. Not sure what that means, “I regress.” Some words escape my immediate recall in dictionary form, but here is one that takes me backwards to...

Taking the Tour

TAKING THE TOUR So it is quiet where I am, and that is interesting considering I am in a mid-sized city and is time for the folks to venture down and go to work and get the smoke-stacks roaring. Ok that is a metaphor from the old days....
