It had not been easy to hack to head from the monster, but we managed. Only broke two knives in the process. It took long enough that our shirts dried and our nymph stripes, which bloomed blue across our bodies when in water, had faded enough for us to return without giving away our mixed […]

The Wandering Inn

They ran. Through the night, following their leader. Past rocks and around forests. Splashing across a shallow ford in a lake. Pausing only to drink and rub the sides of their horses. Drink stamina potions, offer the rest to their mounts. Run alongside them. Fly. It was as if they were one creature at times, […]

The Time Travel Nexus

This week, the Time Tunnel’s time kaleidoscope spits Doug (Robert Colbert) and Tony (James Darren) out in a desert-y area under a broiling sun. The usual where are we? question is superseded by a more pressing one—how do we get out of this heat? Doug rejects Tony’s suggestions of fleeing into the mountains and suggests […]

Russia News Now

The official history says that from the late 19th century to the First World War, Jews in western Russian cities were targeted by the “Black Hundreds” and the government in “pogroms.” This is a buzzword designed to make attacking Jews different than attacking everyone else.

To stifle this notion with real-life examples, bookended by threatening encounters with knife-wielding punks. First time, aged fifteen, blissed within the straight and narrow. Raised […]

It was twelve noon and I was at the cricket field waiting for the doc. He was getting close to being late. Maybe he’d been called out on an emergency? Or maybe his surgery had run over? No change there then! Dozens of cyclists breezed by and I was beginning to think I’d been stood […]

Dad was a skier. And I can’t blame him for that, snowboarding was not yet an option for him. And although the Deutsch family farm (established 1776?) is located in south central Minnesota he had gotten a good taste for it when Mom and Dad moved to Colorado after they were married. They did that […]

Miles from Nowhere

Well it happened yesterday. On the drive back to the volunteer house from the sanctuary I saw a dead dog in the middle of the street. It broke me. I can’t get that image out of my head. The group of 8 or so people that are here for 4 days volunteering went to the […]

My mind stuff

He was an old man who fished alone in a skiff in the Gulf Stream and he had gone eighty-four days now without taking a fish. In the first forty days a boy had been with him. But after forty days without a fish the boy’s parents had told him that the old man was […]

Have you seen the series of paintings by Thomas Cole called the Course of Empire? It’s a fascinating five-piece series depicting the rise and fall of a fictitious, Roman-esque empire. The imagery is rich and the thing that struck me most, apart from the skies that seem alive as they traverse from dawn to night […]
