2nd Cup for 2/12/17: “OKAY, GOD–WHAT GIVES?”

“Why me, Lord?”  If you’ve ever asked that, this is for you. I know, right?  Your mind darted back to Kris Kristofferson’s song, too.  When it first came out, I confess I had curly-lip.  “Lord, help me, Jesus . . .” That was before I came a breath or two from dying a few times.  … Continue reading »

QTMs for 5/6/17: I HAVE A LOT TO TELL YA, LORD. YOU FIRST . . .

There was this guy who approached every situation mouth first.  I don’t want to be that guy. I can fill God’s ears with all my dazzling intellect, wit, ideas, thoughts and one-dimensional impressions with the best of ’em. Guess what? He already knows them. He sees them in all those extra dimensions where I don’t, where I … Continue reading »

Strolling for 4/26/17: FINDING COOL STUFF ALONG THE CURB

We used to find stuff as we walked.  Pennies.  Marbles.  Broken yo-yos.  Old newspapers.  Chipped golf balls.  You get the idea.  Pour yourself a refill and walk with me . . . Writers’ minds rarely rest.  They’re too uber-occupied by wresting phrases.  Or wrestling with preppy-sitions.  I’m forever finding stuff, dutifully noted in one or … Continue reading »

QTMs for 4/19/17: WORDS ON THE CREASED PAGE

Titles need to reach out and grab you. Either they need to be jazzed-cool enough so you feel awkward if you don’t read after them.  Or they need to be so pointed, even edgy, that they sink puppy teeth into your thoughts. You’re still reading, so this one must be just weird enough that it … Continue reading »

100-Word Stroll for 3/20/17: SPRING ALWAYS MAKES ME SMILE

“Spring has sprung, the grass is riz; I wonder where all them flars is.” I learned that little goofy poem from my brother years ago.  It’s still as silly as always.  And I still let no Spring sneak past without reciting it. I woke up in the predawn darkness thinking, “This is for the birds.” Literally. … Continue reading »

QTMs for 3/19/17: SHOWER THOUGHTS

It doesn’t much matter where your ‘thinking spot’ is.  Wherever it is, be prepared to listen and remember.  It’s possible you may not have a pad and pen handy. My thinking spot is most often the shower.  It’s a little hard to write anything down in there.  I happen to have a rather large mirror … Continue reading »

400-Word Stroll, 12/30/16: WAAAAAAITAMINIT!

“In-a that great a-getting’-up mornin’, what is that?  What is that?” Okay, just save it.  I know all about gettin’-up mornin’ creaks, groans and tendons popping, sounding like R2D2 with crossed circuits.  I know all about limp hair skewed every direction at the same time.  Mine usually resembles a Halloween novelty wig somebody found for 25 cents at … Continue reading »

A CHRISTMAS EVE PET PEEVE ALERT

As we walk out of the crumbs and crust of 2016 and head on into the coming year, I have a request. Memes have become ubiquitous on social media.  Some are amusing, some underwhelming, and a few each day are memorable and worth repeating.  Of the latter, I ask the creators of those memes to … Continue reading »
