Tiko eased his way down the corridor. Everything about this was wrong. The storm, finding themselves on a sea that reminded him of Theros, this island…all of it. Kruphix, are you behind this? Is there something here I must see? The passage was well lit, and barren of dirt or dust. Strange, given … Continue reading The Murder Hobos – Shore Leave – Episode 9 – What is seen cannot be unseen
Morning, world. Yesterday was one of the scariest days in my adult life. Seeing armed insurrectionists....domestic terrorists...storm into the Capital in an effort to disrupt the certification of an election made my heart sink down into my heels. Seeing so many people whose skin tone matched mine but whose ideals were so far away from … Continue reading Preserving our Republic
Evening everyone! I worked today, early shift. The one I actually like and would likely stay with even once the youngest graduates from college. Ever since I woke up this morning, I've had a feeling like I'm on the edge of something great. I don't know if it's personal, with my writing, or political. So … Continue reading On the cusp of…something great
It's 11:26 pm on 12/31/2020. By the time most of you read this, it'll be 1/1/21. I'll sleep in tomorrow. I know nothing substantial will change. COVID will still be here, mutating. I'll still be unable to hug my friends. No one I know of personally has gotten the vaccine yet. I anticipate it being … Continue reading It’s almost time….
A friend and fellow fantasy author, Sean R. Frazer, made and sent this to me. Perfectly sums up the year! Today is the last Tuesday of 2020. The year can, and possibly will, present a new challenge in the few days it has left. Given how the year has been, it would not surprise me … Continue reading Putting 2020 in the past
Morning, everyone! Didn't get called into work today, so about to dive back into 'Shield & Scepter'. Will run out to a store with the hubby later today. Right now, the morning sun is slowly brightening the sky. The fog came in early last night, not long after night fall, and it still lingers. Streetlights … Continue reading Boundaries, limits, and what they mean to me
So, yesterday was my birthday. I'm 53 now. I'm not at all bothered by the number. I stopped obsessing over youth, etc, about 30 years ago. We all get older. We don't all get wiser, but we all get older. What matters isn't physical in the sense of hair, wrinkles, or that stuff. What matters … Continue reading Another trip around the sun
Evening, all. This is a long week. Not in terms of hours, as 3 of my 4 shifts are less than 5 hours long. Rather, it's that I start early (either 6:30 or 7 am) at all 4. I came home today, took a nap, and still feel like I don't have more than a … Continue reading On the longest night, look for the dawn
“Shit,” Christos muttered, lowering the spyglass. “Problem, Captain?” the first mate asked. “Nothing I wasn’t ready for,” he collapsed the instrument and secured it in his belt pouch. “I’m going ashore with the next load. Keep enough on the ship that you can come get us later, but I want the soldiers mixed … Continue reading The Murder Hobos – Shore Leave – Episode 8 – Rough Landing
Morning, everyone! I have today off the retail job. That doesn't mean what most think it does. What it means is that I'm not earning any money (unless someone buys a copy of 'Inversion of Magic'), but it doesn't mean I'm not working. First off, I have a cat who absolutely refuses to comprehend that … Continue reading A day off? Yeah, right.
