Wagon Train To The Stars
Genre expectations met? Check. Specifically, the part where there is this group of humanoid, uniformed types who are boldly going where no man/person has gone before. Led by a reckless and daring throwback of a captain who seems to embrace danger at every p...

Out Of The Ashes
There is this legendary bird. It's a big red and orange thing with colors that remind you of the flames from whence it came. It is called a Phoenix, and it is that beautiful, hopeful reminder of the possibilities of something wonderful appearing after a cat...

Security Blanket
" I was thinking today of
the pine cone security didn't allow me to take into the Primus concert. I wasn't meaning to throw it during the show, and all these years later I would
agree with the decision security made that evening. The thing that brought that...

Gifted
I received a gift certificate for my birthday. It was for Barnes and Noble, a "bookstore." Some of you may not be familiar with such things, as they are becoming as scarce as "video stores," which would require a whole separate discussion about things like ...

Coo-Coup
I remember, some twenty years ago, coming home from my job schlepping books around a warehouse, cresting the hill next to the street where I lived with my new wife. On my way home, coming over that rise, I saw it: A B2 bomber. This great big, bat-wing beast...

Pass The Cookies
My son made cookies. Which is nice. He made them with the recipe that my mother gave me. It is the same recipe, she insists, that is on the back of a package of Nestle's Toll House Chocolate Chips . It is the recipe that came with this suggestion: "If you l...

Priorities
The doorbell rang. The phone rang. The shower was running and I was about to hop in, since I was a hot mess after my morning exercise. It occurred to me that I could let any one of these matters slide. I could let the phone ring. I could let the water run. ...

You Gotta Have Heart
There are a lot of people who will miss Garry Marshall's work behind the camera. I grew up in the seventies. I watched Happy Days . I watched Laverne and Shirley . I watched Mork and Mindy . I watched Mork and Mindy carefully. I lived in Boulder. I used to ...

I Give A Shirt
I have a lot of t shirts. So many, in fact, that  I have a hard time finding the particular shirt for which I am looking and then tend to veer off and pick one that matches my mood or the occasion as closely as time and my patience allows. Tomorrow,  after ...

"Common Words"

Terror-Ized
I can remember when hijacking a plane to Cuba was a meme. This is before there were such things as memes . This was a time when hijacking a plane was even played for laugh on TV shows. We didn't call the desperate bad guys who committed this crime terrorist...
