He Rolled Seven

RATE: 3

Jesus, she could dance, her back was strong for sure when she stopped suddenly and did not lurch nor airily sway or list --- only raising her arms when she bowed, a strong, dainty half- naked hinge, a folded black cloth:

men whistling like jungle birds smashing their hands and yellllllllllllllliiiig hooting stomping, drunkards up jumping crazed dodos with gin blotched silk ties, yodeling big-eyed through fly-crapped…

He Rolled Seven ... ....Chapter Two

{Throwback Thursdays. Soon To Be A Regular Feature}





And by the time Big Cat's lithe helo lighted upon the narrow, blunted pyramid roof--- the helo at first invisible with ultra-finagled flage, whisper smooth--- the chrome-like edifice was fully under siege.

Only gun cabinets were unlocked.

Jorge phonechattered upstairs to Lola while Bennie and L struggled to reload the 12 gauge with a supply of rock salt, ka-blam ka-blam Bennie…

TRINE .. (ReRead)

TRINE

Two is a multiplier,

But thrice is the trine device of life;

as there is always a Third Element, that of choice.…

Are We?

           I’ve worked the east coast for nearly five decades. For four of those decades I had no time to process the massive volume of data my senses were gathering. There were many stretches of time where I was being run into the ground and was so overwhelmed that I presented as someone I was not. 

            I was a circus animal. Bred in captivity, and then unteathered in increments to hunt for Red October, or be hunted by other MIC creations. My life was managed on a need…

China Including More Women in Their Astronaut Program

China Including More Women in Their Astronaut Program:  Fans of social equality are praising China’s move to include more females in their space program, including 33-year-old Chinese military pilot Liu Yang who became the country’s first woman in space.  Interesting, because I always suspected my ex-girlfriend secretly wanted to be an astronaut too. …

The Cardinal Rule of Winning The Argument When Making A Complaint While Speaking to a Customer Service Call Center Representative

We do it on a regular basis. Dial the toll free customer service number provided by you name it...

When you get someone to pick up the phone and not the automated 'customer service' robot, the person answering is off shore somewhere in the Pacific. or India wherever the pay rate in US dollars is the lowest....

Understand that they are not customer service at all ... They are…

Presence Matters.

          The Navy gave this one up. I don’t know where they got it. I loved Kosinski’s Being There...and all his books. I love Seller’s Chauncey Gardner in the movie. 

           I’m a field guy, doing less, yes, but I was too old to be doing more for too long. I went to school at night to learn something that I could do old, because twelve hour shoots were taking days to recover from, and film was dead. I can be present old, but not as present as I was young.

Authenticity/Life Experience

Everyone got's one- an opinion that is.

And, we are supposed to share them here. And, if you don't like someone else's thoughts you can be a little keiki and cry all the way home, then delete or block them, or, you can be a WRITER and a CITIZEN and have the ovaries to say what you mean and back it up. And, when you are proven wrong dead wrong (Me, Surfing, Gaza and the Mullahs, as ex. 1) you can have the GUTS to admit it. Also, if you are a typical 53% coward on race, or a total…

I Love the Dark

Reader, Beware!

As a kid I read Jules Verne’s Journey to the Center of the Earth. Though I knew it was fiction, I became obsessed with the desire to go to the center of the earth. My mother got me a little book The Story of Caves. It told of holes in the ground and the men who go in them.

Spelunkers, they were called in the book, but when I met a real one at sleep away camp he called himself a caver. He drove us deep into the Berkshires in an…

The Homeless Kid Rocks

       It can be done here. I could not, but this kid has lived outdoors here all winter. I saw him yesterday. The temperature has touched freezing and the rain has been pounding, but the homeless kid has made it through the worst of winter looking better than he did in the fall. 

       I talk to him...mostly listen. He is a lot smarter than I ever was; 27, with a degree in chemistry, and strong survival instincts too. I’ve never seen him focus, or have to. I imagine he deals well…

My Oscar Tears

         Getting It better, the Mickey Mouse listened and turned medium diversity up from glaring white, as observed last night. Those big ears, well tuned in to cash registers all over the magik conglomerate’s enhanced ability to penetrate global markets listen, and some.

          HR and Star Wars demands diversity, diversity, diversity....but the mouse might not get the cheese shortage just right, there is not shortage of cheese in La La Land.
