The Woman-part 3

Author’s Note: I hope you are enjoying the story and remaining intrigued. This week, we really get to Lindsey a bit better. The Woman-Part 3 Charlotte packed her bag carefully. While it could hold a great deal more than it appeared, space was not unlimited. Three pairs of denim pants, three cute dresses, socks, two…

Shhh….

    Shhh… Don’t speak… Close your eyes, Just daydream light. Sink slowly backward Through space and time. Farther than the rampages Of adolescence… Back, back beyond that time When flesh woke to kill The childhood dreams of Unicorns’ Horns and Pegusi wings.   Shhh… Dream now- Let banality seek You out after you’ve Relived…

What is in a Name?

June 11 is my grandmother, Gloria’s birthday, or would be if she still lived; she would be 86 years old today. In many ways we are nothing alike; I am even less like the grandmother from whom I borrow my middle name, Elaine, but borrow their names I do. Maybe it is old fashioned of…

Life Dream

Author’s Note: What follows is a bittersweet writing. It is merely  a description of a project; a reminder of countless hours in the late part of the year 2000 and the early part  of 2001 spent in front of a computer, utilizing every bit I could of that burgeoning internet. Somewhere, in the way, way…

The Precipice

Author’s Note: Today’s offering was written and first put online back in 2012. I have shared it via social media several times since then, however, until it ceases to be true, I shall not cease discussing it.   We stand upon a precipice in the modern age-not just here in the United States, but across…

The Woman part 2

Author’s Note: I see no reason to not run my story as a “serial”. Enjoy this week’s installment of “The Woman” wherein we get to know a little more about Detective Tongal. The Woman-part 2 Detective Tongal stopped on the way back to the station for a cup of real coffee; that watered down stuff…

Testicles, Cannabis and School

Author’s Note:  Back in 2011, there was a big news story about the “Organ Lady”, a woman who uses organs to teach children about proper health choices. Her instructional material,  you may remember include, as a caution against cannabis, a pair  of human testicles. Going through my computer, I found the letter I wrote to…

Cannabis Coming of Age

Author’s Note: This piece, while never published was written in early 2014, just as I was closing down the Gardens at my former home the Lake City neighborhood of Seattle.   Cannabis Coming of Age (a story)   The first time I saw some one use cannabis, it was about 1984 and I saw one…

Independance

Author’s Note: It is almost like I have spent considerable time working on and studying this issue. This short piece is from 2011. 235 years and 4 months ago, the country we live in and now know as the United States of America was “born” with our Declaration of Independence from Great Britain. Our history…

My Letter to Barack

Author’s Note: The following is a letter I wrote in 2009. I have now sent it to President Obama several times. I have also sent versions to Michelle. Agree or disagree, I will keep trying. Dear President Obama, When you were running for office, about 50% of my friends, colleagues & family members supported you,…

Free Speech and the Fight for Personal Freedom

Author’s Note: Today’s post is a republishing of an article that came out May of 2007, probably via MySpace, but  likely on DANKinfo.com as well.  I do feel like we have come a long way, however it is also important to note we have a long way to go. Recently Tommy Chong was “bumped” from…

Unity is Strength

Author’s Note: This is a reprint of a piece I “published” via Facebook last year. I  find it is still relevant.   In recent months, I have been more vocal about a number of things, predominantly the division in our community, how it affects our ability to work towards the further reforms needed to cannabis…
