TO DRINK OR NOT TO DRINK?

That is the question. And no, I am not talking gin, beer, or wine here. I am talking good ol’ fashioned water, soda and coffee. I get berated for the amount of coffee I drink, because it all comes down to money and it’s a waste of money to be drinking that much. I drink […]

FOR WHOM THE BELL TOLLS

Do you get angry in the middle of the night for things that you haven’t said, for the tales that haven’t been told, and for the chapters that haven’t been read? Do your demons play well with mine? Does your mind contract and unwind? Do you have an insatiable, unquenchable and incorrigible flair? A meeting of the minds that […]

I heard crickets on the sidelines again, we’re listening to them speak in tongues tomorrow, long-lost forgotten friend. I heard you gathered gold on […]

The White Rabbit

I had a weird nightmare that threw a wrench in my string of positive dreams. I was set out to go on a journey alone, but they found me dead. I had all the right supplies, including an enormous white rabbit. But they told me upon my death bed that I had not used all the […]

Lust for Life

Ever hear the Trainspotting Sountrack? That was one twisted movie and an even sicker soundtrack. I remember when Royal Caribbean came out with a commercial showcasing Lust for Life. Not sure if they knew or not, but the song is really about drugs, alcohol and addiction, just as the movie was. Their tagline at the time […]
