It is interesting to realize it took over three years to get here. I always thought an author would have an idea, write it down, find a publisher, do some editing, and voilà, the book is published and ready for readers to purchase in no time flat. Well, it isn’t as easy as that in… Continue reading Self Published on Amazon, Finally!

Democrats: Where are you?!
Too often I ask myself, where are our elected Democrats? We have a pandemic, massive protests, and rioting occurring right now in our nation! Now is the time to be with the people—not speaking to us on TV, not tweeting, not Zooming, not doing robocalls or e-mails. We need you with we the people. We… Continue reading Democrats: Where are you?!
“The Fires are Necessary”
Photosource: https://thevillagereporter.com/minneapolis-police-station-torched-amid-george-floyd-protest/ Reading through all of the protest and riot news today, two things are stuck in my mind. One is how it appears those who want to start race wars and create anarchy are highjacking peaceful protests. The other is what one person said, “The fires are necessary.” This has left me confused and… Continue reading “The Fires are Necessary”
As a white person, I am well aware of the privilege afforded to me due to the color of my skin. As white man, I am well aware of the deference given to me even when I haven’t asked for it. As a gay white man, I am well aware of the danger I might… Continue reading Hoodie Guilt
Off to the Wild Unknown
Tomorrow I make first trek away from home base in over two months. I’m both wildly excited to see some new scenery and stimulation, and wildly anxious about being out of my safe zone for the day. Where am I going you might ask? I’m taking a road trip to Ohio to bring some things… Continue reading Off to the Wild Unknown
Pay It Forward, and Backward
The hubby and I were talking a little earlier today about how fortunate we are right now in terms of our employment. We both have jobs in which we have been able to work from home. I’m still getting full pay, he is at 80%. During the Indiana hunkering down, we’ve been able to help… Continue reading Pay It Forward, and Backward
Hunker Down Hair
Bad hair day number 14! There are many things I miss, mainly people, which I’ve written about in other posts. I’ve also written about some of the positive experiences of hunkering down. But…my hair is horrible and not a positive. When it is long, it isn’t too bad. When it is short, it is where… Continue reading Hunker Down Hair
Choose Wisely Men and Women
Hunkering down has been a challenge I imagine for all of us. There have also been some really good things about being hunkered down, which I believe I’ve mentioned before. I have really enjoyed working from home because it means I get to have lunch everyday with my husband, whom has also been working from… Continue reading Choose Wisely Men and Women
The Patio is Coming!
We have gotten approval to put in our patio and gazebo from the HOA! The gazebo has been ordered and we’ve hired someone to put it together for us. The patio company will be here tomorrow with their contract. Hopefully they can get the patio poured sometime over the next two weeks. That would be… Continue reading The Patio is Coming!
