Rain/OS Fiction Club

"A couple comes into a restaurant independent from each other and seems a little pre-occupied when they finally meet and sit down"  What is their story?

Limp Sunset

036

  Sandy Eggo has a marine layer of clouds that comes in and swallows sunsets.   It looks like a good one is developing however the wait comes to an abrupt end when the sun is engulfed in a thick layer of grey.

Forgiveness

  I like the idea of instantaneous, unconditional forgiveness.   Sometimes that is not possible.   Zimmerman is in hell now.  I hope Trayvon is in heaven.  Somehow I don't think it is that simple.

   This morning I woke up to a beautiful sunny day and sat… Read full post »

Hoodie 2

   Zumalicious asked us to grab a hoodie and join in the march of justice for Trayvon Martin by posting the photos on the internet.  I feel very combative about this issue.  Racial tension and people carrying guns around is not ok in my world.  Republicans trying to m… Read full post »

   He claims Obama is crushing the dreamers with regulators.  He thinks the government is too BIG.  It is.  In his egotistically pompous way he wants us to be completely at the mercy of the free market. 

    "It is about economic freedom," he claims.  Eve… Read full post »

A Young Boy Was Shot

  He was seventeen and walking in a gated community with his hood up on his sweatshirt.  The 911 call that the security watchman made described him as trouble. The guard was suspecting the boy of drug activity and violence.   He and the 911 operator agreed that these *..... are… Read full post »

Old People and Their Bowels.

  Farts and Burps abound around old people.  There are giant messes involved in caring for a group of them.  I have my own problems with stomach aches and getting older has exacerbated that condition.  Having fewer teeth makes digestion more difficult.

Anniversaries

   There are moments in life that we can see coming.  Triggers that are waiting to detonate explosive memories of past events.   When you travel around the year these times are brought out again for examination.  We weep again or we smile, depending on our perspective.&n… Read full post »

1,000 words.....the movie

   I went to a movie after work looking for escape again and I found it.  Eddie Murphy in 'A Thousand Words' was wonderfully simple.  Too bad the critics don't like it.  I am easy to please on a friday night with not much else to do.  He can really contort… Read full post »

An Artist / OS Fiction Club

 

      She was a lovely little girl who had a talent for drawing.  Her mother gave her a whole package of plain white paper and a box of crayons so she could create anything she wanted at any time.   She also had pencils and magic markers.  When… Read full post »

The View From Under My Blankets

 I am hiding lately.  I love my bed and I pull the blankets up over my head and just peek out.  I can stay that way for a good hour after I wake up and then some darn thing drags me out and up into the world again.

Chelsea Handler

   I love her!

  Since 2007 she has had her show on at 11pm in the upper channels developing a unique style for comedy and news.   She has a panel of three other comedians and a co host 'Chewy'.   Then there is usually… Read full post »

'Til Death Do Us Part

   My back yard is nice and clean now.  No more cement.  No more concrete.  No more stucco.  I have uplifted my act.  No more vile messes of abused brushes and crumbling debris.

My Friend Sterling

We try to meet on Second Life from 11pm to 12pm his time in Ohio and 8pm to 9pm my time in California.  Our avatars like each other.  We sometimes just hang out and go about our separate domestic business in real life and chat intermittently.  We like each… Read full post »

Gladys Kravitz Vacuums

   Gladys hurried to her window as two cop cars pulled up outside her neighbor's house again.  She lifted the blinds and then decided that was too blatant so she lowered them and peeped between the slats as the cops talked to a young fellow at the house she hadn't noticed… Read full post »

Crying in Parking Lots

I have been here before.  I remember the stall and the almost desperation of the cries as I pounded the steering wheel and wailed.  I was so tired of being alone and unloved.  So scared again.  It was a long time ago.   I remember that time every time I pull into… Read full post »

The Geometry of Photography


 

The geometry of photography consists of angles and sunbeams

You are flirting with the sun as you make your selection of a view.

 

One small difference can make or break a photo.  Zoom in and out.

Make your decision and press click.  There are plenty of clicks in the… Read full post »

The Little Bridge

   My friend has a wonderful little bridge in her front yard.  It is just big enough to walk over a tiny little rock creek.   The idea of the bridge is to transition.   Before you go over you say the first word that comes into your head.

Windy

   March is in like a lion and out like a lamb.  So it is roaring thru here like a train on meth and I love it.  So many people do not like the wind.  They think it will mess up their hair!  I think it should be a rule that… Read full post »



A "character" is someone who had lots of personality but is a little off.  If they were just normal we wouldn't call them a "character".  Joel was way off.  He had been told that he was odd all his life and he was beginning to believe it.  It was too late… Read full post »
