Am a modern-day caveman out of place with a world full of people. Have retired from the Construction industry and only do my own work now. Favored hobby is building canoes. They only have two flat spots, the seats. Everything else is round. The subsequent problem-solving is the fun part.
used to be a rock-n-roller until Aerosmith screwed it up with “Love in an elevator.” Now am into classical, bluegrass and blues. Like classical because, what kind of 400 year old music do you like? Do you think aerosmith will still be played after 400 years? Probably not. Like a simple life with few surprises. Like to fly and like to be alone most times. Am aggravated by people and their problems. Am too empathetic. But like a good beer and a good joke. So here’s to you!
Here in North Carolina, it’s way, way too hot for me. Having been to Alaska for a year, I know what cold really is and am unafraid. Montana looks really good to me. Wish I was there now. Maybe I can find a cave there.

Beware the Inner You

“Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts and minds of men?” I believe this to be the opening line of “The Shadow”. It’s a far better question than I could have asked. But deep inside, where no one can see, lurks a terror that we choose to forget, lest we lose our minds as well as our souls. It’s not about the Devil. It’s not about Satan. It’s a hor…

A Note from One to Many

To all who have read and commented on my work here at RedBubble, I offer my most gracious thanks. I have been a member for less than a month and have written quite a few short stories in that time. Although I’ve been writing articles on for a while now, I value the time and experiences I’ve gotten from you bubblers very much. I suspect you all are a very caring and t…

Adrift in a sea of self pity and neo-guilt, I feel as if i"m hanging by a golden thread to the lives of my two dogs. I made a copy of two photos to help those looking know what they look like, but it’s heartwrenching to look at them. I’m a mess. / To those who don’t have animals as living partners, you could never understand this pain. But right now, I envy you. / I think I…

Having just finished “A plague of Genius,” writing seems to be the only thing that helps me feel better concerning my two missing dogs. There is a large knot in my chest just under the breastbone that feels like electricity flows through it. Unfortunately, as soon as I stop writing, it reappears. I was hoping it was something simple, like the swine flu thing going around. But that wou…
