The weather changed overnight. Dark clouds drifted in from the direction of the sea. The bells rang out after a long silent bout. The trees swayed. I closed the blue gates. Put on an extra layer. Decided not to water the vegetables as I was sure that the rain was not far off. The dogs looked...

It’s been a while since I’ve let my thoughts spill out onto the page. I’ve continued to write in my private journals and there have been days when I had much to say and then others where I feel as if I’m a small well that has damned itself up somehow. I know that I cannot live in the past. I can...

I've decided to repackage myself. Make myself New and Improved. Sexier than ever. I won't change anything. I'll print up some labels, something slick, maybe some shiny stars with my claims, and paste them to my face and clothing. The 2012 Michael gets greater gas mileage than any Michael in...

Out of petty protest, I once again will not be attending the Pittsburgh Pirate home opener today. I won’t further enrich owner Bob Nutting who reaps enormous profits and never does anything to improve the once-proud franchise team. But that doesn’t mean I can’t exercise my inalienable right to play...

It's an odd thing to be looking at insect feet and wondering how they hold on to slick surfaces that are vertical, especially when everyone else is watching a cute baby gurgling and smiling.   I like cute babies, but, you know, they just cannot walk on walls or ceilings.   I don't know where to go...

The roof of my mouth has been scalded. I was eating thick soup and its bounteousness reached the ceiling. Burned. The tongue runs over a rough spot. Cools. I don’t like soup. The cold is nasty. I am sitting up in bed, my plastered foot stretched out. When I get up, I wear a shower cap over it. It...
