I Had a Dream

The other night I had a dream that seemed profoundly important in these uncertain times.

I was walking in a peaceful meadow. The day was beautiful and silent. White birds were flying.. That was it...just me, the grass and the sky, and the birds. As I walked, I began to focus on the birds... and then I began to worry about the birds. (After all, there was nothing else to worry about!) The number of birds seemed to grow larger, and they started to fly closer to me. As my fear mounted,… Continue

Reminders of My Sad Prose: Writing In a Time of Money

The craft of writing, over the course of history, has proved a veritable haven for people of passion. I, of course, am included in this tossed salad of metaphors and similes, alliteration and rhyme, and rhythm and flow. As far back as I remember, I've been that type of entity. In first grade, I wrote a book for my mom for mother's day. As a fifth grader, I wrote a song inspired by a book I read. My first novel was The Little… Continue
