January 2019 came really fast! Tiff and I started Willow Dreams Design in April 2018. MoodyOops has been around for several years, but not as an official business, so what we decided to do at the time was to operate MoodyOops under the umbrella of the Willow Dreams LLC and open a brick and mortar […]
I dreamed about running last night. I had just recovered from my surgery but was already trying to join a new track group. I was trying to park as close as possible so as not to tax my capacity to run by walking too far to get there. Then I discovered I had forgotten my […]
January 20, 2019 Moving to Mexico: USAdios.com Chapter 29: How Did You Do This? Can We Do This? After my last article, lamenting the hopelessly divided state of the USA, I have decided to take a totally different direction for the next several articles. Since this is our Go Year, I will focus on […]
A few weeks ago, I was sitting with my girlfriend on a cold January night and as we scrolled through Netflix Canada’s offerings (side note: it’s always fascinating seeing what other countries have in their Netflix library) we decided to revisit Mike Flanagan’s 2013 supernatural horror film Oculus. I think the majority of us agree […]
What did you dream for the world when you were young?Responding to Elizabeth’s weekly writing exercise: http://www.spiritualmemoir.com/writing-exercises/weekly-writing-exercises/ I was raised on Star Trek. I saw a universe of hope, bravery, self-respect and no money. I saw people who did things, great things, because it was where their hearts lead them, not because some a&%hole paid […]
I’m a big fan of checkpoints. At the start of every semester (and also every calendar year) I make a list of checkpoints. Big concrete things that I know will happen and that I know I can check off as a given amount of time progresses to remind myself of how much I’ve done and […]
Part I When this world cracks open and its yoke spills into the universe, the men and the women and the children who populated its porcelain dome will become nothing more than a lonesome stain on the crevice of time. Out across the city skyline, orange haze crackles and illuminates the collapsing nightfall. A […]
Walk Me Home We got to the exit and Alex was chuckling to himself. “What?” I asked. He held up my Nike’s. “You gonna walk home barefoot?” I grinned. “I guess I was.” I sat down on the floor and pulled on my sneakers. “I’m glad I have you looking out for me.” Alex rolled […]

David Kupelian’s revealing conversation with NARAL co-founder Bernard Nathanson (Image courtesy Pixabay) During the tumultuous 1960s, after centuries of legal prohibition and moral condemnation of abortion, a handful of dedicated activists launched an unprecedented campaign, whose purpose was two-fold: first, capture the news media and thus public opinion, and then, change the nation’s abortion laws.

Chapbook Confessions is a series in which poets discuss, at length, the writing of their most recent collection of poems, in whatever way they desire. For more information on the series, go here. Below, Lynne Burnett writes on her 2018 collection, Irresistible (Finishing Line Press). First, I must confess I never intentionally set out to […]
I’ve never been one to make a set of resolutions to kick off the New Year or a person that sets personal goals. This post is going to feel a bit “resolution-y” and goal-focused but let’s just call it “hopes and dreams”, okay? Doesn’t that sound like a more enjoyable way to go about incorporating […]
