Life in the fast lane--where's the on ramp?

Yes, I know it was a step-aside. But ideas, verse, come as they will.

I know my verse of yesterday about the old man was off the mark as far as the world situation is in reality. The two bulls circling each other with nukes are both terrible infants as far as maturity is concerned. They've each reached into their diapers and thrown a messy handful at one another....

The old man speaks of war again: full retaliation (perhaps annihilation) knowing there won’t be pain inflicted on his wired old ass. Misery's just for the masses living in his domain. He's built a bunker for his own a doomsday refuge, stocked, hidden and securely locked against the common working... Sign in to see full entry.

Rough Diamonds

At the Goshen Market – the Saturday a.m. farmer’s market in beautiful downtown Mundane – came across an artist’s booth, a jewelry designer to be precise. What caught my eye was a silver peace symbol on a chain – delicate but definite. The artisan was talking with a customer so I waited to ask the... Sign in to see full entry.

Someone asked me yesterday one of those questions you're never supposed to ask a woman. Are you feeling all right? You look kinda tired or something. In truth I was feeling a bit down - thinking of floods, fires, famine and how our nation's stability is going to hell in a handbasket. But I told her... Sign in to see full entry.

Tuesday a volunteer driver from Faith in Action brought a “new” guest to the Main Street Center. She is a tiny little woman, barely five feet tall, weighs maybe 90 pounds soaking wet, with a pixie haircut, a pair of round wire-rim glasses peeking out from the brim of a baseball hat (go Cubbies)....

CLICHÉ WEATHER The rain falls on the just and the unjust. Into each life some rain must fall. It’s an ill wind that blows nobody any good. Rise and shine. Happy is the bride the sun shines on. Go ahead punk: make my day. SING ALONG Row, row, row your boat gently down the stream merrily, merrily,... Sign in to see full entry.

It seems the past few days have seen the onslaught of a Biblical 40 days’ and 40 nights’ destruction as Storm Harvey dropped over fifty inches of rain on millions of souls living on Texas’ Gulf Coast. (and now Louisiana, too.) Fifty inches! If you lived there, the flood would melt your photo albums,... Sign in to see full entry.

I recently saw a story online about kids signing yearbooks at the end of the school year – around graduation rehearsals or some other event. All the prophetic things we say at such times, like “see you next year” or “have a great summer” take on a bit of ironic flavor a decade later as you look back... Sign in to see full entry.

We use ‘em all the time – idioms, that is. According to the Oxford dictionary that lives on the shelf near my printer, an idiom is a group of words that has a different meaning from the words themselves. “Over the moon” doesn’t literally translate to what the cow did in the nursery rhyme. It means... Sign in to see full entry.
