Just a quick shout out that...Well, see the title.   I've been writing since it's hiatus and its sporadic entries, but I've been lacking writing consistency for quite awhile.   But I've been more consistent, though not at the same time every day, since earlier this week.  ...

I've been sick since Christmas, over a month.  Mostly headaches, light-headedness, sinuses, ear-blockage, and, lately, just for the hell of it, some stomach and intestinal distress.  (Ewwwwww.....)  And, by the way, all at the same time.  To top it all off, I have two small...

It seemed like I was chasing my shadow this morning. As sunlight nuzzled the nape of my neck, it appeared to crane, to reach out to the beyond. Contemplation became a tea mug, the foot holding a mirror to the face, almost. Shadows speak a language that is meant to obfuscate. They are like modern...

So I've been away for much longer than usual.  Exhaustion, work, sinus infections and some serious insomnia (so bad that, despite a lifetime with the issue, I had to take a sick day for it for the first time), but I'm plugging along.  Here are a few quick considerations in the...

Photo: Wikipedia page for "Spiderman."  From The Amazing Spider-Man #547 (March 2008); Art by Steve McNiven and Dexter Vines     A very cool entry about a missing house spider on Michael Seidel's blog amused me to no end, as I thought I was the only one with an odd connection to a...

Photo: Sydney, Australia, celebrating New Year's Day in 2007, from "New Year's Day" page on Wikipedia.   Really simple blog entry this time: Happy New Year to all my readers, and to anyone who happens to stumble in.  Here's to better health, better happiness, better times.   And...
