Everyone has spaces, these days. Small spaces, big spaces....even small spaces within big spaces. You're probably in yours now....

Then there's the work situation. Used to be if you put in your time, worked hard and proved your worth you'd be rewarded with your own office...with a door and everything; possibly a window. And if you were really valuable...you're own bathroom...because, you know, really important people can't ...

I sometime get accused of not listening.
Which I think is a bit unfair.
I listen fine.
 I just don’t always pay attention...to most of it....

On an early Christmas morn, there's still magic in the sky....


#humor   #christmas   #holidayseason   #funny   #humour  
The air is still, the only sound, chatter from the stars, which leaves me here, alone, at 1 AM, on a more than mild, night before Christmas, scanning the skies, with the hope that something might appear, maybe even Santa Claus...even if it's only the one I still conjure in my head.

There’s been an extra special warmth attached to Christmas this year. And I don’t mean in a raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens...bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens kind of way....

I’m told it’s an especially good time to listen to my inner voice. Which is not an especially hard thing for me, since my inner voice never stops yammering...or asking for pizza...

Our heart tell us that the girl with the spike collar and purple hair is ...

Another year draws to a close and after a lot of decades spent chasing dreams, I’ve finally figured something out....

Instead of spending your days fretting if you'll ever write that life changing novel, how about being happy with that long overdue letter you finally wrote to your long ago best friend that made him or her cry...even though it was supposed to be funny and you thought they wore those odd socks on ...

It's officially Winter...but Fall is sticking around to enjoy the holidays...and Winter is not pleased....

So, if you'd like to take this story and stand it on its head, it should balance perfectly on one end or the other, due to the equidistant placement of the earth's poles...or something like that. Or you might start clucking like a chicken. Not sure which. I don't know...I'm just making stuff up ...

The Freelance Retort - Something to Laugh About...sometimes
Introduction

My passion these days is writing silly stories for “The Freelance Retort”, the humor website I began in May of 2011 when the world was supposed to come to an end. It didn’t and now I’m stuck writing these things 2 or 3 times a week.  My passion before that was chocolate ice cream.

When I’m not doing this, I’m a freelance, corporate writer/director/ producer, which means—besides the many slashes—I create everything from promotional, instructional and training videos to interactive on line presentations for various corporation and health care companies. In that sense I guess you could say that I’m a “professional writer” since I do get paid to write, work from home and have lots of free time to myself. However, most of my friends and neighbors think I’m retired. Naturally, being a freelance writer who deals with the sometimes insanity of the corporate world from the safety of the creative fringe, my views will more often than not be tinged with cynicism, sarcasm and a fair share of self-deprecation. I hope you enjoy them in the spirit in which they are intended….
