I don't take shit. I don't believe in taking shit. I believe taking shit is a sin, just the same as giving shit is because if you take shit then you are giving shit to yourself - and/…
She was the golden child with her streaming brown hair and richly tanned face. Her eyes were deep and dreamy, shining with the light of life. Shelley was but a teenager then; a prom queen, a cheerleader and everyone's sweetheart. Parents hailed her as a role/…
That will fix everything
A woman walks out of her son's room and closes the door to face his accusers.
"I don't care what you say. My boy is a good boy. He's doing the best he can and that's God's honest truth. You people demanding perfection have no… Read full post »
The Sengoku era of Japanese history (roughly the entire 1500s) was a time of a complete crumbling of the power structure followed by the great drive for final unification led by me, Oda Nobunaga. Right smack dab in the middle of all this came the/…
At first glance he seemed like any other disconnected businessman, absorbed in his paper, the world his oyster. He paid no heed to the black man with his grey flecked beard who shined his shoes - and likewise the shoe shiner to his customer. The pair could have hated… Read full post »
The New Yorker has picked up on this story giving far more details than the original Chicago Tribune article on which I based my first posting. I will warn you, it is close to being unreadable. I mean, it is just devastating and I had to start skipping over parts.… Read full post »
This is you: It's 1991 in the sleepy town of Corsicana, Texas (pop 25,000). You're asleep in your home when you hear your 2-year-old daughter screaming in the night. You wake to find the house filled with smoke. You tell your 2-year-old to run outside as you desperately enter… Read full post »
That was me you saw driving down the road with absolutely no place to go, imprisoned by the same tired landmarks, my head thrusting in silhouette screams, my hands gripping the wheel in white knuckle rage, looking for someone to run over.
That was me you saw spitting up blood/…
The unholy troika!
A few posts back Mama Lou offered up a joint and maybe she thinks I forgot about that, but let me tell you no two words capture the attention here in the shelter like "free weed". We decided to meet up at the Fort Worth Japanese Gardens,/… Read full post »
Waking in the sand, he remembered her vivid beauty
An involuntary smile comes to his lips
The grace of her words, the comfort of her convictions, her clarity of mind
What a woman! A port of calm harbors in a stormy world
Only in/… Read full post »
Deified demon slams shut the cell door, asking, "Who wants to live? Who wants out?"
Anxious human hands stretch through barring bars, begging for release.
"Never!" laughs the demon. "Never to be free!"
Medieval stone sweats in ancient rot, the prisoners in
The intense throbbing pain never subsided, his energy bleeding unfettered into the universe - energy that would never be seen again. Floating out from him were dreams of paradise known and found, for his love had only grown brighter with time. His life had been one… Read full post »
"Now look here, son. Don't do something you're gonna regret."
Recoiled and cornered in his own kitchen, the prison warden kept a leery eye on the angry pistol pointed straight to his heart. But the steadfast intruder couldn't have been swayed by a hurricane. Dressed in black with a ski mask, hi/…
He came rolling into town driving in Italian super suave style, an earthly god of spectacular virility and wealth. He had Rod Stewart hair and J Paul Getty disease. As his English custom shoes touched the ground, women competed bare-breasted to tie his Armani shoelaces. Me/…
OK, so I got a cool new camera, one that lasts more than seven pictures. It also has "features", another new concept for me. The descriptions of how these features work, however, were hidden in the user's manual instead of innately transferring them to mind through osmosis. Therefor… Read full post »
This whole healthcare reform debate is a microcosm of our society as a (w)hole. A serious issue addressed in a non-serious way. All sorts of mindless assumptions and assertions are being made both for and against reform. And it's not really about bringing a com/…
