    So Not What She Asked For

      A couple of weeks ago, a reader made a simple request of me.  Jo Ann has a new blog up and running.  She’s going to start writing more and wants a few paragraphs about digging to make the words flow. Well, I have both dillied and dallied at this task.  Her simple request gave […]

    30 Selfies

    One day as I was driving Dad to his radiation,  I mentioned something about taking a selfie.  He gave me a look and grumbled, I inquired about the grumble. “I don’t want pictures like that of you on the internet,” he barked. It was indeed an awkward moment  when I had to explain to him […]

    Sledgehammer of Justice

        Last week I participated in the epic silliness that is GISHWHES.  It’s a global scavenger hunt with hundreds of teams vying for a luxury cruise on a pirate ship in Croatia.  Really.   With over 180 items on the list, such as bite Luis Suarez gently, each member of every team had a […]

    Keeping Up With The Orlando Joneses

      I am taking the week off from scraping wallpaper paste and agonizing about paint colors.  If you have any kind of social media pulse, you already know this week is GISHWHES 2014 – although you may have no clue what a GISHWHES actually is. The Greatest Internet Scavenger Hunt The World Has Ever Seen […]

    Pardon My French

        That I am writing a series of books based strongly on the color spectrum is an irony growing richer by the day.  I’ve done a lot of research about color, the meanings of colors, the history and etymology.  I’ve learned the words for colors in other languages, vivid color is splashed all over […]

    Home Despot

    I need to get my houses in order.  That’s right, houses plural.  A few months back, my attorney called me “landed gentry”.   Yep, I have an attorney now too.   Things have settled down since Dad died, no fresh dramas to send me spinning.  No complaints about that, but I have been reeling somewhat in […]

    To Live And (Not) Die In Hawaii

      When Arnold Schwarzenegger ran for Governor of California a while back, it provided a large boon to my personal economy.  His campaign headquarters took up several offices in the shabby building housing my lively cafe.  There was a large staff always in need of food, plus we catered many meetings up the War Room.

    Lack Of Zaz

    Books are like lives and each chapter is a day in that life.  Just like the days of our lives, some are good, some are bad, some are exciting and some are just plain boring. Telling a story, especially a story filled with exotic locales and magicks, is a lot of fun most of the […]

    Tears of a Prospector

        When I make Prospector cry, it feels like kicking a puppy.  He’s such a kind and dear man, he rarely has a bad word for anyone.  Prospector is reliably big-hearted and takes his mission as guardian of Solstice very seriously.  He has his faults, of course.  He isn’t perfect, but he is the […]
