The Rains Of Autumn

The Rains Of Autumn

There’s a woman washing her car In the parking lot across the street The bus chugs by beneath my window, With twenty-minute regularity The days are still and cold and damp, A miserly amount of sunlight barely Lights the trees as they shed the Last of their faded leaves and Coat the rain-wet streets below […]

Book Review: “The Last Busker in London and Other London Tales” by Garry Crystal

Book Review: “The Last Busker in London and Other London Tales” by Garry Crystal

     I first became acquainted with Garry Crystal’s writing through his articles and essays and over the years quickly considered myself a fan as I eagerly awaited the next installment.  They were always insightful, well written and more times than not, made you think about whatever subject he was writing about – politics, social and life issues, […]

Thoughts For The Coming Year

Thoughts For The Coming Year

Soon this year will draw to a close and a new one will begin, a year of uncertainty and unease, as we contemplate the meaning of the sudden end of the Mayan calendar, and of the cryptic predictions of Nostradamus (feel that delicious shiver that hastens your pulse and dimples your willing flesh!)

After years of dedicated ramblings, it was an inevitable occurrence to run up on some writers most concerned with the greater concern… Change. Sometimes you walk for so long and you don’t know when it will end and your watch battery has died. You want to turn back but you do not know how, and […]

The Screenplay Diary: “Between Love and Orgasms”

The Screenplay Diary: “Between Love and Orgasms”

This is a new feature, and for me, a new project. After a very intense creative period this past spring and summer, writing a regular weekly column on a website I had written for since January of 2007… and having left that long-term situation rather suddenly… I found my writing, and my blog, absolutely dead in […]

Debris

Debris

We were a heap of debris stacked nearly five feet high. Broken branches, trimmed hedges, brown leaves, even a few pulled up weeds. The ruins of our yard. The clippings of old growth sheared off love. We felt a little gasoline would help. And next we knew, Fire, Fire, Fire, Roaring up toward the sun. […]
