Proud to have one of my haiku chosen for the theme of Emergence. Thanks Freya! You can find some hope for spring (and other great haiku) at Pure Haiku Plus (spoiler alert) there’s more coming down the road!
wistful dreams recalled of daring easy riders conjuring desire I actually was a too young to have any thoughts about Easy Rider when it first came out but as a teenage I became obsessed with guys on motorcycles. And Peter Fonda on a bike-woo hoo! Probably a good thing I didn't see the movie until… Continue reading Easy Rider
This was fun!! Thanks Freya. (Sorry it took so long to say thanks–this week’s been a bit nutso.) 🙂
Here we are again in the docking port of the Interplanetary Space Guild Rescue Ship. Another Escape Pod has been found wandering in the depths of space and brought to safety. Who’s inside this one?

This week! I yi yi! No wonder today's Just Jot January prompt reminded me of this commercial from my childhood for the Inch Worm Toy Granted I was probably out of the target age but I had the same reaction then as I do now. You're getting nowhere on that ridiculous thing. Get off that… Continue reading Inch Worm Angst

And oops-sorry I messed up the… Continue reading Lazy Day
November was NaNoWriMo. And many people in my sphere (be it virtual or irl) participated. Me? I went another route. I didn’t add a single word to my novel-in-progress.
