Welcome to the Home of short fiction and essays by a creative writer and life observer.

Saw an interesting quote on the web a while back by James Thurber, the American writer best known for Walter Mitty.  He wrote: “Let us not look back in anger or forward in fear, but around in awareness.”  What are you aware of today?  What made you aware?

For me, it is the little things in life–sunshine, smooth traffic, good coffee.    The ordinary passage of every-day life is pretty fascinating, when you stop to think about it. The merger of thoughtful awareness and imagination is the source of good fiction.  Each of us has stories to tell~I plan to share some of mine with you!tea-2318301_1280

So I am lifting a mug of hot, creamy coffee to say:  Hey there–I’m looking for a bigger world, one that keeps me curious and excited enough to haul it out of bed in the morning.  Part of the purpose of my writing–both fiction and non-fiction–is trying to stay aware.  I invite you to share your experience and I will share mine.  This could be the beginning of a great friendship!
