Lead Paint

  “Best not to mix the past with the present. The present paints the past with gold. The past paints the present with lead.” ~Henry Rollins    My dear friend, haven’t you learned by now that lead paint is deadly?   While it looks pretty and shiny and even new on the outside, it is toxic. Lead gets inside and slowly poisons your entire body.  The same can be said about toxic people. I can boldly say these words to you because I’ve experienced a full overhaul remodel of my…

The Shit Storm of Negativity

  Over the course the past week, along with just about losing my mind, I’ve almost felt like giving up, giving in and snapping. This is the result of too many things being piled on all at once from work and my car breaking down – then being told by the mechanics my car is a deathtrap.

Self-imposed silent time with no disturbing distractions from technology and…

I try to fit them into one voice, one style… this cannot be done. Each story has a voice all its own. Tons of stories to be told – to be written – spewing forth from my mind with reckless abandon.

Coffeehouse Raw: Stream of Consciousness

The coffee here at The Slow Train Cafe in Oberlin, OH is delightful; I am on my second cup of cafe mocha, made from a real coffee press machine I might add. No crappy McDonald’s rip-off here. I savor every last drop as I sit at a table in the window facing the main road. I spy every single person out joyously walking with their friends and loved ones on this unseasonably warm winter’s day; this makes me smile. The sweet and savory smells of coffee mixed with fresh pastries…
