Bottles will pop open during a wine festival as rigs drill deep across the city to find a resource whose scarcity threatens Paso Robles to its core: water. The water levels in wells that feed homes and wineries around her 10-acre property just south of Paso Robles have dropped 80 feet in some areas, leaving many with no choice but to take out loans to drill farther down. "The drought is being used as a political mechanism to take away property ...

FUCK YOU, CHINA! At first I got mad at the country of origin—there wasn’t any manufacturer’s label, just a price tag. “Fuck you, China, for your cheap consumer ‘goods!’” And: “Fuck me for being dumb enough to buy them!”

Another gay man propositioned me. I politely told him I was straight. He tried to convince me that I should explore new avenues since I couldn’t find a woman. ‘How do you know I can’t find a woman?’ I asked. ‘I know,’ he said. ‘Believe me, I know.’

We are very sensitive and protective of our junk.

Occasionally, after a harvest, on a pay day, they’d go to a bar in Cambria and get drunk, shoot pool, become happy and sentimental, stare hungrily at big, healthy white girls, perhaps get angry.

In 1782, the year she turned 30, Frances Burney was a single, successful chick-lit author with not one, but two bestsellers to her name. Fans pointed and stared at her when she went out to public places. They stood up and made a fuss when she entered rooms. They routinely addressed her as ...

Those who drink and drive, every single one, instill in me only feelings of anger and disgust.

Time stops for me on the train. I don’t’ do business. I stop, and listen, and watch people; and daydream, and try not to pay attention to dubious talk about diamonds in the rough.

Story

Farmhand and publisher
Introduction
Currently, I work as a farmhand. It's good hard work and a welcome alternative to sitting at the computer day in and day out, which I've also done.

An ideal balanced lifestyle, for me, is time in the field, working the body, and time at my desk reading and writing, working the brain.

My greatest joy, however, has been to publish a literary magazine, The Rogue Voice, which started out as a monthly print publication in 2004 and suffered a quick printing demise in 2008, when the economy crashed and burned. After numerous, repeated requests, we resurrected the magazine online early last spring at The Rogue Voice.com.

I also write the occasional column or commentary, including Green Living PressCold Type, Common Dreams and Counter Punch.

I have worked as a freelance writer and editor, avoiding whenever possible soul-crushing office spaces, with a special interest in politics, health, and agriculture. I like working from home and outdoors, and pursuing my interests in music, art, literature and plant life. I've had the honor of working with many talented authors, artists, growers, farmers and innovators. For that, I'm grateful. §
