Whatever does a writer do over a summer vacation? Let me rephrase. Whatever does a writer who doesn’t have the funds for world travel do over a summer vacation? That’s right! That’s what I did, along with some other stuff. … Continue reading
Time for a walk. Here in Montana the snow is patches except on the mountains and the rivers are rising melt water. Spring whispers and the long-range forecast is calling for more mild weather. Yes! Temperatures well above freezing, but … Continue reading
Don’t ever let someone tell you, “Well, that’s as good as it gets,” without verifying they’re right. This is a medical cautionary tale, a tale of hope. You aren’t alone. This isn’t to say your diagnosis is wrong or your … Continue reading
Ever produce work and believe you’ll never have another worthy idea again or that, no matter what, that one piece must represent your success? It’s your baby, after all. Countless people have trapped themselves into believing they’ve extracted the last … Continue reading
