Canary in the coalmine

And how it escaped…

Thoughtful Thursday: The Beginning of the End.

I've been wondering where my creative energy has gone... not really worried. Just impatiently waiting. Expecting it at any moment to rush back and sweep me off my feet. It's been weeks. Months even. And only hints, here and there.... Continue Reading →

Whatever Wednesday: THE RACE to end all Race…

Thoughtful Thursday: A parable for the ages (while praying for emancipation from oligarch-autocrat-ic rule)
