Susie Cannon was nice enough to post these on Facebook, where I could see them — and then put them here. I’ve wrote and rewrote ‘Nice Name for a Sky for a couple of different venues, but this is the first time I know that it’s been done. Very pleased. Thanks,/…
when my fingers won’t move briskly
I’m in the mood but lacking whisky
the summer night is super sticky
too fast to stop, too slow for quickie
the fan blows soft at the back of my head
something I love — sweet and strong — has fled
and through the… Read full post »
I’ve seen people do it. I never thought I would like it. I like eating vegetables. But seeing the juice made me say to myself, “no thanks.”
And then I had a conversation with my friend, Steve Dulin, who has had, over the years, this… Read full post »
If you Google the movie, “The Untouchables,” you will get lots of links for the Robert De Niro, Kevin Costner film about about Eliot Ness.
I just put my paper, Coffee News, to bed for the week — and that feels pretty good.Â It’s Tuesday, 1:53am. I’m ready to do something else now!
Yesterday, I searched through some of my Mom’s papers. In almost all of her file cabinets, she has a folder bearing my name.
I found some interesting things.
Tennis rankings from 1972. I was ranked 27 in NC. Not bad. Several of those guys ahead of me ended up on ACC… Read full post »
31 marriage years
55 hip years
9 dog years
a soft light against a puddle
a woman aims a car
peace pulled from night
we turn around
Sitting here on my couch.
The dog — Jackie Mudpie — sprawled beside me, sleeping.
She’s not feeling well. Her stomach is growling. She didn’t eat much yesterday. Today is a holiday. We’ll go to the vet tomorrow.
There’s been some loud hammering on our house this mo… Read full post »
The big news tonight in North Carolina is that amendment one passed.
According to ABC News (the site that rose to the top on my little Google search):
“The referendum- North Carolina Amendment One- goes a step beyond outlawing same-sex marriage, which was already illegal in the state. Th… Read full post »

Tapi is an American citizen now — and he’s proud of it!
He came here as an AFS exchange student, from Finland, in July of 1972. He brought corduroy pants and thick flannel shirts.
He was my AFS brother. He had had years of English in school, but it was… Read full post »
I just got back from a walk with my dog. It’s warm out, and I know she’s thirsty, and probably hungry.
So am I.
But what is really working on her now is hot and tired.
We both came and sat down. I sat on the couch. She likes… Read full post »
Paul Bernhardt passed away last night. He will be missed by so many. The heartfelt depth of that missing will be uncommon. He was a regular guy in a small town who made a gigantic impact on the town and the many, many people around him.
Years ago, when Steve Bouser… Read full post »
A lot of people make a difference in other people’s lives. That’s the real juice in being a human being. And then there are those who are dedicated to it. Those who give their lives to making a difference.
That was Mr. Hurley.
I didn’t know him well, but I knew/… Read full post »
Nothing in the Inbox? Nothing at all?
I read about this a few years ago and have been thinking about it for awhile, but never had the guts to really do it. Then, this week, I’ve got so many emails!
I’ve always had folders, filters, etc… and still thousands of emails… Read full post »
Who is Ted Corners?
Well…Ted Corners is, of course, a writer.
He has no fear of being disliked or criticized or embarrassed.
He got his name one cold winter nightÂ in the mid ’80′s, while Sam Post sat in his office on the 4th floor of the Wallace Building… Read full post »
Okay — about six months ago, we got chickens. Six very cute hens that lay eggs for our breakfast and run around the yard in the afternoons.
I had a fear (what else is new?) that the dog and chickens can’t be friends. I was wrong. They play and have lots… Read full post »
The years seem not to be plenty
Since they started beginning with twenty.
The kids were kids. Now they’re grown.
Clinton was Prez; Sarah Palin unknown.
And here we are, about to delve
Into the year twenty twelve.
If a dozen years can go that quick
Maybe time and space is/… Read full post »
This is a video of Poochie, my most recent play. It was shot on opening night — Oct. 19, 2011 — certainly a night I’ll never forget.
We’ve had our chickens for six months, and we’ve had our dog, Jackie Mudpie, for seven years.
Each afternoon, we let the chickens free range for about 90 minutes, before dark — and we keep Jackie inside.
So today, in order to clean and move the hen house, we created an… Read full post »

This new play has been different from any production of any play I’ve ever had.
I’ve had plays in other cities or states where I just showed up and saw the show. And I’ve had some… Read full post »
