I have resisted writing about the ever-present pandemic that has and continues to loom over us mainly because it has impacted us all in so many different ways that I found the subject (perhaps) too sensitive to tackle in all … Continue reading As Things Change
In my previous post I wrote about being away for an extended period of time, well two months to be exact. Having recently returned. I cannot tell you how happy I am to be home. Home, as in California. As … Continue reading Where I Live
Just an quick update on Book Two. The stories are longer, similar in complexity, unsuspecting and entertaining. I am thoroughly enjoying the process, as in Book One. More to come. XOBali. Continue reading The Stories
Much turmoil and tragedy in our every waking moment of late. I have found myself avoiding news portals in the hopes of sustaining a sense of peace and tranquility. Now, I am by no means promoting an “ignorance is bliss” … Continue reading The Essentials

Sitting in my workroom on this quiet Monday morning, I realise that I have not traveled this year at all–nowhere!

I am being swept along in a wave of productivity of late that I simply cannot give any resistance … Continue reading Bank Holiday Weekend
