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 »

WHOA-HO-HO… MER–YOU NEED IT WHEN?

There are approximately two billion children worldwide.  With an average of 3.5 kids per home, Ol’ Kris Kringle will need to visit about 571 million homes this coming Christmas Eve. If said kids leave two cookies and a glass of milk in each home, our intrepid red-togged hero will snarf something in the neighborhood of … Continue reading »

100-Word Stroll, 10/19/16: TIME-SHARE TOMBS & LED GRAVESTONES

“You just had to go there?  The whole Halloween shtick?” I’m a writer.  I find inspiration in just about everything.  I’m ghoul that way. “Ho-kay.  What’s bubbling over in your mind this time?” Why, thank you for asking.  Why, um–why did Isaiah stipulate a borrowed tomb (53:9)?  All four gospels affirm it.  Matthew says Joe of … Continue reading »

100-Word Stroll, 10/5/16: IS THAT ME IN MY MIRROR?

I was carrying on a snarky conversation, cracking wise: “Wow, bub – that face could hold a 3-day rain.”  The usual early-AM smart remarks.  It was about there when I noticed the guy wasn’t firing back, but aping my gestures.  I squinted.  Mirror. Aw, NAW, man.  That can’t be– Starboard-side hair matted and flat.  Whiskers.  … Continue reading »

100-Word Stroll, 9/29/16: TIMED FLIES

I sat watching flies.  It later seemed obvious they were also observing me.  Or, more to the point, my food and drink.  Flies aren’t choosy. If one has a thirsty and inquisitive mind there’s no limit to what one can learn.  Nor from whence. What held my attention was their singularity of purpose.  The flowchart … Continue reading »

100-Word Stroll, 9/23/16: CAN’T WAIT TO MEET RALPH

Ralph’s my longsuffering GA.  He’s no cute, pudgy little androgynous munchkin often portrayed in art.  Hunh-uh.  Not Ralph. I’m unsure how guardian angels are matched with their Earthly charges, but I’m guessing that short meeting with God produced a facepalm.  Ol’ Ralph apparently drew the short straw when God called him aside. “Your mission, should … Continue reading »
