It struck me how the sight of her entering my darkened bedroom, the penumbra of light around her body from the lamp outside, could awaken the quickening sensation in my body of a young man. Memories mix with fear and longing now that my younger image decreases in portfolio and distance within my remembrances, and I struggle to keep my libido separate from the…Continue

Clarity went through an additional security check before entering Brayfield´s bedroom with Everglade holding her hand. Closer to Everglade she was now as Evans had suggested, she just hadn´t planned on also being close to Brayfield.
"She likes you honey," said Everglade, flashing a smile, "I convinced her to come here with us."
"Oh!, that´s nice," said Brayfield, "well, make yourself comfortable, we have all night for you to let me know…Continue

I’ve been stressing out lately, playing scary scenarios in my head, rehashing conversations that went badly, even my dog quickly bored of playing with me.
I decided to take the Mindfulness class offered at a nearby hospital. Jon Kabat-Zinn has a good reputation, as a man who was trained as a Buddhist meditator who figured out how to teach meditation without the Buddhism.
As I walk down the streets of my neighborhood and look at the Halloween displays that decorate the lawns and porches, I’m struck by how trite and predictable everything appears. Tombstones angled crookedly out of the ground; cobwebs spread over shrubbery; skeletons, witches and ghosts. Forget about the hazards to trick or treaters from silent but deadly hybrid cars speeding down darkened streets; it’s a wonder the kids don’t die of boredom.…Continue

Because there's this story, see...
and maybe it's more than one story. A series of stories. I don't know, but the characters are starting to get loud.
So far, I haven't written a word down.
My first character popped up when I was studying - a girl, about…

I’m glad that Tim Cook has finally come out publicly. Everyone should. Living in the closet is not healthy, even for a giant of the tech industry. The Apple CEO broke open his closet doors in an essay in the latest issue of BusinessWeek.
“Plenty of colleagues at Apple know I’m gay, and it doesn’t seem to make a difference in the way they treat me,” he writes, adding that his company has been in the forefront of…Continue

This is, without a doubt, the best time of the year for me, and not just because of the cool, crisp autumn air and New England fall foliage. The NFL season is in full swing. The World Series ended last night, and the Royals, the team closest to my hometown, were in it. The professional hockey and basketball seasons have started and I’m following two college football teams. Yes, October is a veritable cornucopia of a smorgasbord of a goulash for sports fans.
BOSTON. Ted Wyzinski is a familiar sight to those who work in the South Station area here, his grizzled visage a reminder that in the race of life there are both winners and losers. “I went off the rails in the 70s,” he says as he accepts some spare change from a passerby. “I heard Morris Albert sing ‘Feelings’ and I guess I let my emotions take control of my life.”
“You talkin’ to me?”
Ken Venezia, by contrast, is a young man with a…Continue

On the other hand, you can work so much you won’t have a life even while you’re living. Your Work-Life Advisor is here to help people like you, several of whom wrote in with questions this month.…Continue
Fast upon yet one more instance of in-school child-on-children murders, this time outside Seattle -- just how in hell did the damned gun get past the door of that school...oh...wait...that's a predominately middle-class…
okay, here's hoping. in no particular order: gloria on her back, gloria's head peaking out from under the couch (her favorite sleep/hang out place), G and C side by side, C with G's paws on her, shit, i know there are more. oh yes and a snippet of cocoa in her yellow Rain Poncho with her In Training service vest. it's pretty sweet. ( shit, i effed up. i wanted to give a little tribute to my late official service dog Ella Fitzgerald. she died a few months ago and i'm feeling like Gloria is…Continue
