March Reading List

Who doesn’t enjoy pictures of puppies or kittens? This photo is of my ivory lab the day I brought her home four years ago. Ziva now weighs 65 pounds and is immensely strong, intelligent, and never fails to entertain me.

THE READING LIST: I reread a few favorite novels this month but mostly it was a month for reading short stories. I love when I discover new writers and I discovered a few this month whose work I’m going to look for. Here’s a partial list of the ones that stuck with me:Read More

A HodgePodge

I have been working on a number of projects lately, not all writing related so I thought I’d share a little here.

Writing is a sedentary and solitary endeavor and it’s easy to become a writing chair potato. Now that winter is finally loosening its grip on my part of the world I am getting outside more. It’s not quite time to dig into the gardening/yard work, but it’s nice enough to take longer walks.

When all the snow is gone we’ll tackle the woods’ trails which are far more challenging.Read More

The Habits of Our Minds

Most of the humans I know tend to be lazy–not in action, but in our thinking. From the earliest days we develop an outlook on places,  events, people–on life in general–that becomes habitual to the point where we become stuck. We become rooted in specific thought patterns. This is how bigots, misogynists, and other prejudices are created.Read More

Another Snowy Day, Writers, & UCONN Women’s Basketball

I know. What do any of those things have to do with one another? Not much, really. But today is another snowy day and I took time from writing to watch the UCONN Husky Women beat USF in the American Athletic Conference semi-final.

Anyone who watches women’s basketball knows the Huskies have dominated the landscape for the last twenty years, winning an unprecedented 11 national championships. The reason they win is yes, talent, but not just talent.Read More
