One Special Cat (non-fiction prose)

To Love and Be Loved Or One Special Cat Is there a difference between unconditional love and romantic love? Is there a difference between romantic love and possessiveness? Does unconditional love mean that when a man’s wife and soul mate, the woman he knows to be the one love of his life comes to hi...

Sovereign Citizens

The FBI associated the letter with "sovereign citizens," most of whom believe they are free from all duties of a U.S. citizen, like paying...

I'm a very strange human being. I've seen God in the bark of a tree, moss on a rock, the rainbow of oil on rain-wet streets. I've seen beauty in a trash-strewn slough, glory in the sight of a bald eagle flying over the slough, something I cannot word in the jade-green water, the morning fog dancing ...

A Very Short Story About Life, Liberty...

...the Pursuit of Happiness and What it is to be Human. When I conversed with God he asked me one question… “How many ways are there to spell 2?” I’ll admit I didn’t have an answer right away. I had to think about it for awhile. But eventually the answer just came to me. “In English,” I said, “ther...

I'll make my own confession in kind...A few times as a teen, I had dreams of sex with my mother, waking in a state of utter revulsion and extreme confusion. I just didn't understand why!!! In my waking life I had absolutely no thoughts along these lines. Yet here was this dream. Because of this, I i...

It's rockhound. You're probably right about the economic thing. Money is money and it don't matter where or who it comes from. If the money to do it can be cobbled together, humanity will go to the stars someday. The wars of independence in the future, though, will likely be fought in ways as incomp...

Love Is

Love is more than something you make
Never anything to have or hold
It can no more be stolen than bought or sold
Love is something you're in every day you live
And afterward, too
Whether you know this or not
It just is

Thank you, Non Sum, for the necktie compliment. It's a cabachon of chrysoprase - green chalcedony (microcrystaline quartz) colored by nickel - I had fashioned from a chunk I got at a small now-defunct mom and pop rock shop here in Oregon years ago. The stone came from Australia, though chrysoprase i...

Thanks guys. Glad you both enjoyed this. The little lady may not look like much, but push the right buttons, get her hackles up, and look the fuck out. I like knowing she has my back just as much as I have hers. It's a love thing.

I could not agree more. The man is brilliant. "The interview" is more than a skill, it's a talent that can be developed skillfully. Charlie Rose has done this beyond par. I learn more about current events both large and small watching his show than any other, I think, with the possible exception onl...
