Scripps – Excitement and Disappointment

And, by disappointment, I mean that I am disappointed in about half the internet using population. But, I’ll get to that. I don’t care about the Super Bowl, the World Cup, or any other major sports competition. In all fairness, I don’t even give a damned about the Oscars. I understand why people get so excited […]

Reigning in my moodswings: Enjoying life and looking toward the future

I have no illusions that my experiences are all that special or unusual, but I also don’t expect my conclusions to fit into anyone else’s life; but just in case… I have been hospitalized three times for psychiatric problems.

An island within smelling distance of Manhattan that’s been abandoned for […]

This just dawned on me yesterday…

and I really regret it.

Day 3 – Personal Challenge

(Character study – these old ladies have been haunting me for a while.) Maude sighed as the car pulled  into the parking lot. “I just hate this place.” Ella looked at the green lawns and towering oak trees surrounding the building and nodded. “Sure does make you consider your mortality.” “Mortality, my ass.
