THREE-POINT DADS

Some men make better dads than others. While I was working at a post-retirement job at Seattle Central College (1994-2003) I got to know all the faculty in the Humanities/Social Sciences division. I was an office assistant. My job was to order textbooks for the faculty, keep track of applicant... Sign in to see full entry.

BUREAUCRATS AS CANNIBALS

Once upon a time in the late 80s my career changed beneath my feet. In their ever evolving “improvements” to the bureaucratic merry-go-round, the high mucky-mucks decided our geography-based cartography and economic development group should merge with the outreach group from the school’s public...

PITY THE PRESIDENT’S WIFE

At least the exes are free of daily contact, but the poor First Lady has to appear in public with him, let him hold her hand, hold her head high and appear cool and above-it-all in the face of blatant, ongoing insults by the louse in chief. I imagine she’s banned all TV news from her quarters, but... Sign in to see full entry.

SERIAL KILLERS AND INSUFFICIENCIES

Ya gotta know a guy who raped 50+ women and made a career out of bashing people to death had a grudge against not just women, but humanity. I’ve been following the story of this 72-year-old ex-cop J.J. Deangelo, prime suspect in the case of “The Golden State Killer” crime spree that terrorized folks... Sign in to see full entry.

IF AT FIRST YOU DON’T SUCCEED….

Some of us tried the limerick format at today’s Write Your Own Story session. Others focused on the first love/first crush, whether or not it was their soulmate story. For some reason, the format of the limerick was problematic for some. They wanted to do three couplets, or change the beat/rhythm... Sign in to see full entry.

LIMERICKS

Do you like limericks? I don’t think any writing instructor I ever knew thinks the silly things are poetry, even though they have rhyme and rhythm and tell a bit of a story. I think perhaps we’re not supposed to have a lot of fun with something so dignified and esoteric as “poetry.” If we’re writing... Sign in to see full entry.

KEEPSAKES

STORIES FROM THE CENTER The women and men who come to the Write Your Own Story programs at The Main Street Center have become close-knit and supportive. We get into the heartbreak issues amongst ourselves at times, and even #MeToo issues come up. Most of the time we humans of the female persuasion... Sign in to see full entry.

HERE IT IS, AS PROMISED

“Days of Our Lives” won the daytime Emmy for best daytime drama, just as I was about to poke fun at the never ending recycling of plot lines, the unreal situations and patterns of the characters. But it must be serving a purpose if the show has been on the air for 50 years. There’s a concept in... Sign in to see full entry.

IT WILL HAVE TO WAIT…

I was all hyped up to do a run-down of the daytime soap opera “Days of Our Lives” story line and characters, but something more interesting came up. My kids. Half of them. Dinner. I got a message from daughter Lorrie, my firstborn, that she and Mike were going to be in town Saturday and would like... Sign in to see full entry.
