Welcome to my playground, where I use words to play with thoughts and ideas. I hope you enjoy it. You can see my works either by clicking on the tabs that are at the top of this page or by scrolling down the right hand side of the page to Categories. Use Categories if you want to “like” or comment on an individual post. Of course when you open up a Category, the words don’t have any punctuation so click see more and voila! The tabs at the top give you what is essentially one long document for each category, which works well if you just want to read through a category. Musical Vignettes is a work in progress and includes some great chapters if you like music and musicians. There are stories like how I was a roommate at boarding school with the kid who wrote the theme song for Mash, hanging out with a rock and roll band in Quebec City when I was sixteen years old, meeting guitar great Doc Tibbles in Kenora Ontario, and a bunch of other stories and memories. Passing Thoughts are just that. Minor observations, oblique looks at life. Poetry is self explanatory and is also constantly growing although I have posted some older works and may dig up some more from the past that are worth sharing. Prose contains a variety of essays and some short non-fiction memoirs as well as short fiction such as “Miss Carruthers”. Satire/Parody is a place for me to attempt to use humour and exaggeration to draw attention to issues and poke fun at authorities and attitudes. Social Commentary is a place for my rants and exhortations on social and political issues – please read my first post there “Choose Peace”. Songs could also be called lyrics in search of a musician. I am open to any collaborations.
