November 29     John Grisham   My time hovering low over the ocean has filled me until I am ready to drop.  The weight of what is inside me bears down; I know with the slightest cooperation I will become a rainmaker.  I am mostly fine with this; I know from whence the rain...

“I can't remember the last time I wasn't at least kind of tired.” I know what you mean. Last year, my taekwondo instructor and I discussed his training for his upcoming test for his 7th Degree Black Belt. He mentioned his commitment to practicing his form, a daily exercise routine, and always...

  December 12   BLEATING FORMALITY     Stupidity stalks me when I am tired, hijacking my mouth.  I can put this off to pilot error or interruption of service on my neurologic pipeline, but truly I have been captured by senseless, irrational muttonness.  I would love to...

Just hit the wall. After I bounced off it and settled on my ass, I heard soft scrapping sounds and realized he wall was breaking and crashing down on me. Hands are tired. Feels like a torch is being held to my knuckles. Eyes are worn out. Brain feels numb.  It's warm and sunny. The radio plays...

Have you ever watched the faces at Wal-Mart? Some are angry; some are annoyed; some are in a hurry and people getting in their way make them cross; some are frustrated, tired, don’t want to be there, arguing with their teenager on their cell phone or harassing an overworked employee.  I rarely...

September 17         Ovoid       I can pretend at this normal life for a period of time then the plaster starts to crack on this white picket fence and it’s all down hill from there.  I am better than I was; I am happier and more well adjusted, yet I am...

Well, it is coming down to the wire and before you know it the holidays will be upon us. So, I am moving at the speed of light to get the last two chapters down for my novella. It isn't as easy as it sounds. I have an outline but I find I am deviating from the course and that is bad. My characters...

(Originally posted my site's guestbook on July 28, 2010) That's what I've been -- sick and tired. I went to visit a very sick friend. It was such a roller coaster of emotion with her and with her beautiful family trying to cope. I was absolutely wrung out. The moment I got home, I got a...

Trampled Are you on the road to stop? I mean, how long will you travel? Do you wonder how much you should endure? You look tired, friend, like someone worn out from washing clean clothes. Are you needed elsewhere, the you you’ve trampled under your own feet? Shatter them! They’re only clay. Roll...
