Ashes In The Snow
Right, so this is a series I’m going to try and keep going until I have discussed all of my favourite genres of music, and there are a few, so let’s get started with my favourite of them all: the majestic, and wonderfully whimsical world of post-rock. So, before we dive straight in to this […]
Today is the first day of spring. For someone who is not a fan of winter weather, snow, or cold temperatures the announcement of spring weather has come brings with it the sounds of rejoicing and celebration. I’ve always have enjoyed spring. Perhaps it is because it reminds me of Spring Break trips with my […]
As the car reached the top of the hill, a large sign came into view – WHALE ISLAND ANNUAL FESTIVAL OF THE SUN. Biscuit gasped in awe at the sheer scale of the event. Before them were stalls as far as the eye could see: food, crafts, clothing, entertainment, games; if you could think of it, there was probably a stall for it.

Young and old alike, the Sun Festival was a time for everyone to relax and enjoy the spirit of summer.

As I stand here On this empty street, Black snow falls It’s a sign of defeat. There is no hope I can’t see any flares, This feels like hatred It looks like despair. Flakes land on me They drip with pain, From ashes to blood Leaving their stain. The fantasy we’ve lived Drowns into insanity, […]
I have always loved the start of spring. The metaphor of new life bursting forth from the once frozen and rested ground never gets old. It never feels cliché. The seasons of my life have always seemed to parallel the seasons of the earth. Anyone else? Have there been times you have tried to force […]
THE LAST MOVE? After nineteen priors here and abroad, it should be. Two years of discussion, it’s time to go to a retirement home, application made and approved ergo icata alia erat, the die was cast, as Caesar said as he crossed the Rubicon. No Rubicon for us, just the Connecticut River. Our pack train […]

Working on the second one! ٩(•̤̀ᵕ•̤́๑)૭ And I just finished reading listening to The Earth is Online (with my sis at the side commenting “multitasking at its fullest” and my mom asking why I like listening to someone chant whenever I use the text to audio function in jj’s app)! It’s a really interesting survival […]
I had a friend who was my brother. More than my own legal brother, he was my brother. I loved him dearly. Still do. He made some bad choices and I had to part ways. Sometimes that happens. One of the very valuable things he shared with me was the secret and point of the […]

The Rose Bush from Hell My mother gave many of my plants and bushes to me. She was a wonderful gardener and she got it honestly from my grandfather, her father. He lived in Charleston, West Virginia, and was an educator but he gardened for pleasure. His garden was beautiful, and even though he died before I […]
“Travis McQuaid!” The voice cried in alarm. “What in Sam Hell happened here!?!” By that time both the barn and the farmhouse were completely engulfed by soaring flames. A huge black cloud of smoke hung overhead. I didn’t recognize the voice at first and so I thought perhaps one of the Lazy H riders had come back and found us.
