I paint. I write. I enjoy meeting new people on Google+, participating in their conversations and learning what makes them special. Here are the topics about which I post most frequently: Silly things that have made me laugh, Books I've enjoyed, Writing, Self-Publishing, Comics, Art/Illustration, and Movies/TV Shows.

Have you seen my pencil sharpener? It was around here somewhere.

Sometimes I log into Pillowfort to see if it’s worth considering as a possible alternative to G+. So far, I’ve come to the conclusion that the site was designed to emulate connectivity on a 56k modem for people who have grown up with only a broadband connection.

+Mike Reeves-McMillan, I know that you're in New Zealand so this may not apply to you directly, but I wanted to bring it to your attention in case you meet any of those paid NASA actors.

+Gregory Lynn is still good people... even if he does have questionable taste in baseball teams.

+Torah Cottrill, a few months back you recommended Andy Weir's book Artemis. I've just started reading it and so far, it seems that your recommendation was spot on. Thanks!

I'm not saying that people should look down on or judge +Rick Wayne harshly, but there are rumors that he uses a knife and fork to eat Snickers candy bars. Some people say he also enjoys pineapple on his pizza.

It’s good to see that Google is consistent... about canceling services.

Last week, I took my wife to an old graveyard. We spent our time there reading the faded letters that adorn the worn grave markers. Little pieces of stone that serve as reminder of the people buried there. Strangers to us. Unknown men, women, and children who lived and died in a time before our grandparents had been born.

It was an interesting way to spend a Saturday afternoon.

Eventually, we stumbled onto the burial site of a couple who had died in their late thirties. My sweet girl remarked on the fact that the husband had died just a few weeks after his wife had passed. She turned her face away from the tombstone to look at me and said, "I hope we're like that. I'd like for our deaths to be close together."

Her statement put me in an awkward position. The younger version of myself would have found this idea to be tragically romantic and touching. The older version though-- he's a different sort. That's the version of me who has been married to this woman for 20 years. That version of John is well aware of how much my wife enjoys True Crime Documentaries. It was this older version who spoke: "Is this your way of telling me about your plans for a murder/suicide pact?"

Time makes cynics out of us all.

Isaac is a good guy and needs your help if possible.
The hospital bills are starting to show up, and that brings it home more than ever that the help people have donated through the GoFundMe page my family set up is really going to be what helps my family survive financially through this whole ordeal.

If it's possible for you to donate and assist, you have my eternal gratitude, because I honestly don't know what we would've done otherwise. If you've already donated, THANK YOU AGAIN, and if you could perhaps reshare this link for others to see, that would be amazingly helpful as well.

As the old Bartles & James wine cooler ads used to say, "thank you for your support."
