Bohemian Rhapsody

I was first introduced to the music of Queen while watching the 1980 film Flash Gordon.  I know I loved the theme song to the movie, but I didn’t know who Queen was, yet. Fast forward to 1987 and I spent most of the summer watching the original Highlander movie on HBO.  Queen once again came into […]

The reasons I vote

I had a lot of time to reflect this morning during my chemotherapy about a conversation I had with my nephew last week.  He just turned 18 and I thought he might be excited to vote.  The conversation went like this: Me: “Are you all registered to vote?” Nephew: “No. I don’t plan on voting,” […]

A rough patch

I have been in a crap mood for weeks.  There has been a shadow of dread that has been following me around for some time now.  I realized the cause of my depression about a week ago.  It was the anniversary of my father’s suicide. His birthday would have been yesterday, and I spent a […]

The Top 5 things that scare me

Everyone is scared of something.  In many cases, as a writer, I use my fears in my work.  Fear helps to motivate you to get things done.  Fight or flight response kicks in and adrenaline rushes through your body.  Muscles tense and the worlds slows down.  These feelings are a gold mine for a writer.  […]

“Get the hell out!”

My wife kicked me out on Saturday, again, and I love her for it.  Every once in awhile she will tell me to “get the hell out” and send me to the movies or to do some shopping for her.  For me it is an hour or two of freedom, away from school, my son, […]

Back on track

The last few weeks have been crazy.  I am in the final week of classes for this term, finally!  It has ben hard to stay motivated with these classes.  Intro to Mass Media and Seminar in American Literature have both dragged these last few weeks.  Maybe it is because I didn’t find the books and […]
