My latest rant

Sunday, March 25th, 2012

Sometimes I wonder why I’ve chosen the path my life has taken.  I figure if God had wanted me to do something else, like being a scientist or something important like that, I’d have had a whole lot more science or math brain cells than I have. My talents run toward the artistic rather than […]

Lifeline or tether?

Monday, August 22nd, 2011

Cell phones.  We love ’em.  Play games on them.  Take photos with them.  Keep our friends’ and family’s phone numbers in them.  And now we can even bank with them.  There are a dizzying number of apps for cell phones.  Blackberry, iPhone, or smart phone, practically everyone has one, but not everyone needs one.  KWIM? Walk […]

The right choices

Tuesday, August 3rd, 2010

Yesterday I attended a play in New Orleans with three other well-seasoned theatre-goers.  It’s not likely, or even desirable, for those of us who love theatre to agree on everything.  Amaziningly enough, we all agree that the production’s director had made some interesting choices.  Having been a part of the production when our own community […]

Blogging the Blog

Tuesday, April 8th, 2008

Hi there.  I know, I know, it’s been a while since I posted anything.  But I attended the Jubilee Writers’ Conference at the Terrebonne Parish Library on Saturday, and one of the sessions was on blogging.  Sooo, I decided that I should do this more regularly. Here I am, then, staring at an almost-blank little […]

I fear nothing walking alone on a deserted street heels click on the pavement behind me not my own spiders in the woodpile disturbed by activity scurry in fright or stand in defiance their defenses apparent shadows on the wall coat draped on a chair sinister intruder within tree branches in the wind lurking voyeur […]

Cliche’ Chatter #1

Thursday, March 2nd, 2006

Cliche # 1: Putting someone in their place. This one really gets to me for several reasons. The basic thing is that it’s bad grammar. It should read “putting someone in his or her place.” But that would ruin the flow of it, wouldn’t it? Getting back to the saying itself, you must assume certain […]

In the beginning…

Sunday, July 11th, 2004

Not as earth shaking as Genesis, but new beginnings are exciting, and this, my initial post, is definitely that. It’s the starting point of my _serious_ writing career, with all the pitfalls and promontories that come with it. Of course, I’m hoping there will be more hills than valleys, but I’m willing to adventure out […]
