Beauty and Heat

April 16th, 2014

      We recently had a hospitality day, where a couple dozen friends from downtown visit us at ‘the house’ for a meal and card games, or just lounging in the sunny yard. Some guys take showers or baths. We commiserate. Hazel was a big hit. She talked her gibberish...

the sky

February 6th, 2014

      The pink sky has nothing to hide streaking next to the flame ride. The blushing bandit has long been suspected to be the sky’s favorite state of mind. The bluest blue rarely reveals itself, instead maneuvering minions for view, especially baby blue. But the sky is not...

the night

January 20th, 2014

      I developed my intimate relationship with the night many years ago. Besides the usual insomniacs, slaves working their shifts and drunkards, the night is always thrilled to have another guest in her house. She lives down the street in the other end of town, in that weird-looking...

Dark Dragonfly paperback available

January 17th, 2014

      Finally proofed Dark Dragonfly, and now it resides in its shiny, darkened cover. This chapbook gives me a lot of pride. It’s really neat to have three years worth of development pieces in it. It contains a richness, at least as rich as I can be, because of the...

Foreclosures funded by taxpayer money — Updated

October 7th, 2013

      Over the past five years more than 4.5 million families lost their homes through foreclosure, but there would have been fewer if the federal government didn’t give tax payer money to the banks to push citizens out of their homes. The $700 billion Troubled Asset Relief Program...

We Need the Rain

      Living outside the system has its challenges and rewards. The rewards are the large circle of friends who live next door. Regularly we retreat to our apartment and also integrate next door in ‘the house.’ Unless Hazel is taking a late nap, we attend 6 p.m. dinner....

Living the Alternative Life

      We had a first birthday party for Hazel Sunday and the photo is a reaction shot after Hazel took her very first step by herself at her party. It was a lot of fun. Instead of scratching out a stressful living with nothing leftover, Alecia and I...

for you

      You are the first birdsong of the far off morning. You are the night in my heart, burning to break free the bright day. The leaves of your limbs flavor my waterways, the currents sent searching for your most mysterious shore. Most beautiful one, you linger in...

you are color

      You are the familiar voice in the darkness. You are my first homeward steps in the journey, the sweet plains of my dreams, the first touch of twilight. You are the hole in the day where I can hide. You arrive with the taste of water. You live in...

Dark Dragonfly is (a)live

      I am thrilled to say that the book project I have been working on is finished. Dark Dragonfly is available on Amazon for the Kindle. The paperback will be available shortly. I’m just proofing the final copy. What a journey. I spent two months working out the...

night wind

      The hawk is the tough guy of the sky, the eagle his brother. The wind flies, favoring all floating feathers, and not just for fun. The wind is the magic wand of the world whipping seedling drums. The wind was born with a wave of God’s hand....
