A curse by any other name…

My last blog post was incomplete. Some of them are. It's not intentional. I mean, it’s like this. I get excited about a random idea that seems pretty simple. I start writing, then, boom! Ideas and words and thoughts and more words and more ideas explode onto the page. Before you know it, I’m in …

Let the sun catch you…

Writing has to become fluid again so I am posting to that end today. I’ll not think too deeply, review too carefully, or critique too harshly. Instead, my thoughts will flow from fingertips to computer keys to the word document that I’ll then simply load to my site. Like a stream, easy. A friend, whose …
