eThoughts : Leaning Towards the Light, Enjoying the Shadows, and Loving the Night

The other night while I was enjoying the outdoor fire, the stars, the trees, and the silence, I began to wonder about my writing and why it can come off as so pedantic, though I have a pretty good sense of humor (really!). I think my humor is more objectively contextual—I work off of the […]

eThoughts : Change and Maintenance

I finally had enough sense to get out into the hills recently and breathe. All of these nagging possessions are still having a go at me—and I live rather modestly. My muse has all but deserted me and I think it shows. In my best state of being, I can get still and become a […]

eThoughts : Journeying in Purgatorio

Recently I saw a television program about a dog kennel licensed by the government to buy and sell dogs—which they did, buying mostly from suspect sources and selling mostly to researchers. This particular kennel was being targeted by an animal rights group for abuses to the dogs. Indeed, the video footage presented reminded me of […]
