Hello, it’s been a while since my last blog post. Been busy doing stuff, some of it actually writing! Well, more like outlining.

I’ve also gotten on Instagram and you can see the feed on the right.

How you like the new theme?

Okay, I’ll write a better blog post sometime soon; just wanted to check in and say hi.


A big thank you to those who downloaded my new poetry book over the weekend! I’m incredibly grateful to take up a bit of space on your Kindle app or Kindle device.

I’m already thinking ahead to the third book!

This second book (actually, the first one, too) was inspired by a poet on Tumblr. It made the idea of publishing poetry seem like a lovely thing.

coming soon

Tomorrow I’ll be running a promo on Amazon for my newest poetry collection, “The Warrior Journey,” on Kindle. The print version is almost ready…

In the meantime, enjoy this early evening photo from San Diego.

social connect

I’m still new to how everything connects to everything. It used to be that you had a blog. That’s all. Now there’s so many outlets a person can have to share whatever. Even live video now with Periscope; I’ll think about that later.

But today, I am doing the simple thing of linking my blog to my Facebook author page, so it can all be connected. It actually wasn’t that simple! Yet, it could’ve been worse…

it’s just a marker

I forgot about the blog for a while. The holidays took a lot of focus away from writing, but I did do some traveling, see friends, and eat tasty food. Finally recovering from that. Then I got a stomach bug, and I’m finally over that.

Now 2016, what do you have in store? I hope there’s plenty of love around.

the office party

This must be the week of the office party; I’ve never seen so much cheese and dairy products in a shopping cart as I have this week. I’ve also never seen so many carts filled with stuff to the max.

One person at Whole Foods had so much cheese! Block after block of cheese placed on the checkout counter. And each block of cheese had to be $10 minimum, so this was a fancy office party. And four gallons of milk. And all sort of other stuff like crackers and other snackage.

I called up a company for some customer serviceĀ and I got a message saying the office was closed for their holiday party. Perhaps I can’t get any answers today.

On a random food-related note, I saw chocolate brandy beans at Trader Joe’s.

musical longings

Many times I’ve longed for the rock band dream. Not for the adulation of fans or the glamour of it, but to play music with people who you really jell with musically and personally. But I also know that I could never really do music all the time because I’ll get bored. Yet, if it could be a part-time gig…
