The stone wall raised its thorns As they silently approached - To them it was a gateway And blossoming vines encroached... Impostors are these archons? I have… Continue reading Excerpt (Poetry): “The Purest Generation”

On Superlative Deviation.
Recently it’s been crazy here. My family has endured some unexpected issues and demolition in our home, but things are much more quiet now. I hope to be able to post a little more regularly soon. I apologize for not posting new content as promised, but life happens. Isn’t it great!
As previously mentioned, new updates on my writing projects are being posted on T.W.N. A new one will be out this coming Tuesday. I also plan to post one or two fun things to S.D. on the same day. As the days get a little hectic, I’m trying to get organized again. I have made several changes to the running of the blog and my author site which should help greatly. You might also notice some editing of my bio and other information, as well.

A moving picture postcard, animated scenery, and dramas taken from the pages of a scripted comedy. What is it you see? Just what you expect: Material from Vaudeville and conveniences that lack All purpose, life, and passion - Set designs so cold and wooden. Who is there behind it? Who has fed the Beast? Who… Continue reading “Free-will (and Other Lies)” – Poetry

Human words are meaningless, Falling on deaf ears that only seek the guidance of Heaven. A group of souls united In the exploration of worlds, They are the… Continue reading “Love” – Poetry
