Sometimes we get lucky and stumble upon something … Continue reading Widow’s Point

What do you see when you look into the eyes of an animal? I bring my dog, Bodie with me to work more days than not. Especially lately. My job can be stressful. Sometimes stepping away from the desk to take the dog or a quick walk just clears my head. This is not the … Continue reading Boop!
Why? I ask myself that single word question over and over, every day. Why? Why would someone do that? The world just never ceases to amaze me.

Creeping ever closer to the finish line on two - no, three - books I'm writing, I thought I'd share a little politically incorrect snippet from Deconstructing Tracy.
