Modern News: Lemme Know When The Book Comes Out

I hate the medium of modern news so much. Here's how I find out about current events: *walks in on volatile Twitter argument* *stares uncomprehendingly as WW3 erupts* *scrolls through comments* *still doesn't know what started the argument* *stalks accounts of 3 people involved* *still doesn't know what actually happened* *asks what I think is … Continue reading Modern News: Lemme Know When The Book Comes Out

I Finally Read The Hunger Games (Book 1)

As my friends and regular readers know, I am very slow to follow fads.

The first time I heard of The Hunger Games … Continue reading I Finally Read The Hunger Games (Book 1)

Just across the train tracks in downtown Conroe, nestled between the historic Owen and Crighton theatres, is a little coffee shop called Conroe Coffee. It's 7:45am. I've ordered the Polar Bear Latte and seated myself at the glass table with a swirl of white embossed flowers by the lounge window over-looking the street. Jazz music … Continue reading Life Update

I’m Make My Pen A Bow And Draw It Across the Blank Page Till It Sings

What of me? What do I have to give? I know what to do, what I do best. I'll make my pen a bow and draw it across the blank page till it sings. I'll coax shapeless thoughts and feelings into words, into my own kind of music. My knees bend, my body sways with … Continue reading I’m Make My Pen A Bow And Draw It Across the Blank Page Till It Sings
