Life’s Lessons 1.0

I rarely do this. Wait. That’s not true. (I’m such a liar.) I used to waffle on and on about the world at large, but a few years ago, I decided to stop. Lately, I’ve focused on my fiction writing so that’s all I’ve blogged about. But… Now I want to go back to waffling. Gird … More Life’s Lessons 1.0

Doors

Can be amazing symbols of opportunity. In fiction, particularly fantasy and science fiction, doors are often gateways to other realms. But more often than not, they are simply doors; meant to keep inside stuff in and outside stuff out. And sometimes, the door itself is not enough to do that last job. So that’s when … More Doors

Giving Money

2017
