Tonight’s Sunset

I know it looks as if I produced this in Photoshop, but this is exactly what I saw from our front porch. I love the Southwest.

One Way to Get to Pylos

April 23, 2024

Another picture from my 1980 trip. I’ve fled the freezing rain of Northern Europe for the Med, and here we find me on a rare sunny day. Greece turned out to be cold and rainy as hell, and one night I pitched my tent in a tree-sheltered hollow, only to have the rain start to […]

The Small Rains Down Do Rain

April 19, 2024

I haven’t been visible much online because I’ve been buried up to my eye sockets in submissions for Taos Toolbox.

Because Some Days You Just Damn Well Want To Be Uplifted

I can’t quite believe that Mariza is performing on a freaking talent show, but that doesn’t make her any less awesome.

Not Saving

March 21, 2024

So the other night something weird happened with Scrivener, my word processor. I finished my work, backed it up to Dropbox, and went about the rest of my evening. Next night, I opened Scrivener, and discovered that none of the new writing I’d done the previous night was anywhere in the file. I checked the […]

It’s St. Urho’s day! Time to dress up in green and purple, and empty the bars of all contents before the Irish get in tomorrow!
