Of June Bugs and May Beetles

The tap-tap-tapping on the win­dow was keep­ing me awake. Most chil­dren that I know would be a lit­tle scared by this con­stant noise on their bed­room win­dow, but not me. One thing that I have learned in my rather short time is that, on the whole, and gen­er­ally with­out excep­tion, there is always an explanation […]

The Dreams of Annabelle Cloud

The girl in the pic­ture said that her name was Kayleigh, but I knew she was lying. So, I called her Dilly Dilly after the song, Laven­der blue dilly dilly, Laven­der green. She didn’t like that. When­ever she was get­ting on my nerves, I would just say, “Yes, Dilly Dilly,” and she would stop getting […]

The Dreams of Annabelle Cloud

The morn­ings after were always the hard­est. The more Annabelle trav­elled dur­ing her nights, the harder it became to wake up to the real­ity of the world. And the real­ity of that world was mun­dane. Her nights were filled with excite­ment and won­der, the strangest moments, fas­ci­nat­ing peo­ple, fear, love, beauty. Her days were a […]

June 10th

June 10th, 25 years ago, I got dumped by my then girl­friend. It was a trau­matic time for me, so much so that I found out later that my par­ents had me on sui­cide watch. Not that that was some­thing that was on my mind. But I know that I became moody, I did after […]

And here it begins…

This is my new site. I intend to use this blog solely to cover my exper­i­ments in writ­ing. Hope­fully one day, I might just be able to make that elu­sive leap to becom­ing a pub­lished author. Until then, hang around here with me. Maybe we can have some fun. Hope­fully you might enjoy some of […]
