With any new site, we understand that finding your way around can be a bit daunting. To help you use our site, we have a few resources and tips, all of which can be found on pages under the Support tab in your top menu bar. They are:

FAQ- here you can find some quick answers to general questions, questions about privacy and about site features.

Site News, Tips & Tricks - this is our forum where you can find tips on using the site, news about site changes and other information from the staff and other members.

Our Terms Of Service and Our Copyright Policy can also be found under the Support tab.

You may also find additional help by going to chat and asking another member. Chat can be found in 2 place: There is a CHAT link in your top menu which will open chat in your browser.

The other option for opening chat is to use the small tabs at the bottom of most pages. The tab named "Opium Den" (our chat name) will open the in a small pop up window at the bottom of the screen. This window can also be resized or 'popped-out' and used as a separate window.

There is a "Members Online" tab on the bottom of your page too. This will show which other members are logged in (logged in does not mean they are active in the chat, simply they are logged in to the site). There is a small speaker icon which will allow you to adjust the chat beeps which many prefer to turn off or down when not actively chatting.

We have many excellent features and tools here. While it may seem overwhelming at first, the basics of posting and commenting are simple and before too long we hope you will feel comfortable and at home.

Bang around, explore, write, comment and most of all have fun!

My Backyard is a Crime Scene

It seems that whenever there is some national dragnet for a criminal or pair of criminals on a crime spree,  Ohio makes the news. They are either from Ohio (helloooo Ariel Castro) or passing through Ohio. And for some reason, they are often spotted in my neighborhood, perhaps because it is near a major interstate.  I remember one couple arrested a few years back as they tried to dye their hair in a motel down the street, and there have been at least a half dozen news stories where residents…


Eating with Dogs

I don’t know what was in my lunch today, but all of a sudden, I found myself in the heads of my dogs who were keeping sacred vigil over my victuals.



That’s Lola, the brindle one on the left. I’ve had her since she was eight weeks old. I fell in love with the way she was barking and trampling on her sleeping siblings in order to get my…

Although this is loosely based on true events, details were changed to protect the identity of individuals involved.



            My brother Bruno used to love to sit in the front yard of our house, action hero in hand, watching the world go by. He loved nothing more than to woo-woo-woo his way through his favorite music of the moment. There was his Respighi period (you haven’t really heard Respighi’s Pines of Rome until you’ve heard it hum in…

I spent the mot incredible week at the Kenyon Review Writer's Workshop this past June, studying literary non-fiction with Rebecca McClanahan and our Kenyon Fellow Annette Gendler. I was with an amazing group of writers; since we're all spilling our guts out, the non-fiction folks bonded very quickly. It was a life changing joyful totally wonderful experience. This was a generative workshop where we shared new work every…
