Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution...– John F. Kennedy, Address to Latin American diplomats at the White House (13 March, 1962)

Girlfriends (Oct 29, 2006)
I have been thinking a lot about my past girlfriends, or lack thereof. I have gone out with several girls in my life, but in all of the years I have never had a girlfriend. At least, no one that I could call a girlfriend. I think if you asked any of the girls that I have gone out with they would say the same thing. They were never my girlfriend. It is a strange thing. It is something...

It is balls cold. Somewhere, in the darkness, nothing happens. It is quiet. What? The crunch of snow. First one, then more footsteps crunching in the distance. They can’t be out tonight; not in this cold. It is only 10 degrees, 10. Nothing would be searching for food now. They are. Blaze has started barking. He knows. They are moving slowly, the cold must affect them. ...

The Student Move In
Academic Fall, there is an understatement! The time when proto-adults are strewn about the place all gawking, and traipsing, and driving around a new home of which they are temporary residents. Striking out for the first time on their own, they are blissfully unaware that the rest of the townsfolk have existed here for many years. The finest academic minds of the new generation, get behind the...
Never get out of the boat
I was watching a marathon of That ‘70’s Show. For some reason that set me off emotionally. I think that That 70’s Show is really funny, but I had to stop watching it. Ever since that night I can’t stand to watch it. It makes me very sad. The problem is I can’t remember why it bothers me so much. It has something to do with relationships and love, but I...
A Sign from Above.
I have told this story to several different people since it happened. I thought people would find it funny. It just seems like it would be funny. Maybe my sense of humor is getting skewed to the tragic. So far, everyone I have told it to has found the situation unfortunate and sort of felt bad for me. I have to chalk it up to meaning something, I’m just not sure what. And now, dear...
A quiet morning here in the town. As an insomniac sleep only comes after long ours of pie-eyed tossing and turning or medication. The netherworld of the bed creeps up on me. I may be dead tired but all of my thoughts come back to me at night…all them. Not satisfied with just the thoughts of the passing day, my mind opens up long closed chapter of my life for review. How could I...

Fear and Loathing on the Open Road
A strange feeling comes over a person when they have been driving too long. It’s as though one is looking at the road as if it were on TV. You are enthralled with the drama of the mundanity. You think you are paying attention and alert as you watch cars and trucks pass you on the dark, terrible highway. Then suddenly the car ahead of you brakes and you find yourself just observing. ...
Perfection (part 1)
I have spent my entire life searching for perfection. Perfection in everything that I am. Perfection in everything that I want. Perfection is something that comes within reach and slips through your fingers. Perfection is something that if you do get it, or think you are getting it, it reminds you with terrible swiftness that the cost is too great to keep. The perfection that I am in the...
