As I write this I am stretched out in my own bed. It is a glorious feeling. But I’d be lying if I said I didn’t miss camp. Not only the thrill and joy of it, but the people I get to spend camp with. And then there is the fact that I grew up … More Snow Camp (4)
The third night of our camp is dance party. There is always something magical about watching these kids let loose and boogie. Dancing isn’t always the most natural thing for young kids over here, so watching them be free is just another way of showing that we are reaching these kids. That is all for … More Snow Camp (3)
I was lucky enough to have a few readers who nominated me in an online “Best Indie Book of 2017” contest. The bad news is that my book “Sand, Sea and Stone” likely won’t come out until the very end of December. The good news is that it looks like anyone can not in this … More Vote for Me!
I’m starting a thing where every Friday I will do my best to write a short story based on a suggestion on my Facebook author page. Of course, I didn’t think about doing this until late Thursday night. But, as luck would have it as my wife and I were walking home with our son, he looked up at the … More Short Story Friday 1: Let’s Make a Moon

I’d already released the book through the many self-publishing options (chiefly the smash words gamut and Amazon) and many friends had already purchased a copy. But, there … More Indiegogo 1: Process

Recently she’s been working on her own projects, that she writes about on her own website. … More Rika’s Art
Woohoo! Another little political rant! just the kind of thing that everyone loves to read. As long as they agree with it. Especially when it comes from some unknown character who can be accused of living outside the country for over a decade and therefore has little accurate experience as to what it means to live in … More Spread that Blame!
Celebrating the end of the week by making hamburgers and watching the 1982 classic “The Thing.” Life is good.
Tonight had a little bit of adventure thrown in to it. Only a little. Maybe it was more of a curious incident. But it did throw a bit of my evening off schedule. I hate being vague, but it involves people other than me, and so I’m going to hold on to it for just … More Interesting Tales Can’t Always be Told
Sunday has become our family day and today was a successful one. Despite the heavy rains, we managed to keep our little one entertained as well as get a little bit of cleaning done. Admittedly me and the Mrs are both ready to collapse, but i guess that is part of having a kid. Still, … More Family Day
