Nmishoomis (My Grandfather)
I I don’t know this place. I don’t like it. My parents sent me here. They said, you’ll learn new things. Important things. For the future. A new language. New skills. It will be useful for us, your family. I told my parents, I want to learn from you and the...

Small Problems: Times and Places
Jacob and Trish were sitting on their hill, in the broad field at the end of their motley neighborhood, watching the sun set over the distant pines. “There’s a time and place for everything,” said Trish. “This is neither the time nor the place.” “If this is...

Small Problems: Prelude to the Paradox
Tammy was Timmy, before the Vet said he was a she. She’s long, sleek and very black, with white on all her tips. She likes to stretch in sunbeams and curl into perfect black balls, with all the tips tucked away, on chairs, sofas, and beds. One evening, she ...

Small Problems: Up The Hill.
Jacob and Trish live in a motley neighborhood of houses, which ends abruptly at a broad field with a large hill in the middle -- perfect for sledding in the winter. Trish doesn’t know about the sledding, because she’s new to the neighborhood. Sitting togeth...

One of the Seven
This job is easy enough, but I manage to screw it up sometimes. I always know when I do because Gord loses his shit. A storm of “fucks” and “Jesus Christs” thunder out of him so loud that something deep inside of me jumps, even when he’s yelling from high u...

The Best Laid Plans
I headed for the sea, as soon as I exited the small French train station at the heart of the small French town. It was a grey cloudy day. There was a heavy mist in the air. It was the sort of day that justified the existence of an off-season in the Mediterr...

Small Problems: Perspective
Trish is a little girl who can draw anything she sees or imagines. Children in the neighborhood often ask her to draw their portraits. The small problem that Trish faces is that some children don’t look anything like the way they think they look. “No, no, y...

Small Problems: How To Divide the Cake?
Trish and Jacob are both very fond of chocolate cake and, unlike many boys and girls their age, they are both very fond of sharing chocolate cake. The small problem they face is how best to divide the cake. “I guess we can both be sure that we aren’t the mo...

Small Problems: Meet Jacob and Trish
Jacob is a little boy, who is big enough to ride a bike with no training wheels and smart enough to read a book with tiny print. He’s also fond of saying so. “I’m big enough to ride a bike with no training wheels and smart enough to read a book with tiny pr...

The Christmas Kitten: A Short Story
NB: Course Language and mature themes. Jeff reminded himself that the suicide rate is always highest at Christmas. It’s probably because they close the bars, he thought. Forcing broken people to sober up long enough to remember how alone they are probably i...

The Art of Fine Thinking
Introduction
I’m a thinker, of that there is no doubt. 

I appreciate the beauty and elegance of a well-crafted argument. I’m also moved by the insight and intelligence of a well-framed work of art.

The artifacts of my thinking come in many shapes and sizes. I share the more artful, sometimes silly, and often provocative artifacts of my thinking here. 

I would love to connect with others doing the same.
