Fabric of Our Lives

While the cotton industry wants to you believe cotton is the literal fabric of our lives, in a more metaphorical sense we each have a unique fabric that constitutes our lives.

By that I am referring to the people, interests, jobs, and hobbies that make up each of our lives. No two combinations are quite the same even in the closest relationships. In the next several months I intend to begin adding posts related to a few of the hobbies that are part of my life. One is artistic blacksmithing, though for the time being it will only be fair weather forgework as I don’t currently have a proper shop so can only work when the sun is shining. Another is older video games, the late 90’s and early 00’s were probably the heyday of my gaming life and so I tend to continue playing games from that era even today.

A new installment that you will see pop up weekly, will be a prompted creative writing based upon a single player walk through of the game Diablo 2. It will cover the adventures of various characters as a story related to their struggles and including screenshots from the game. It is less like the walkthroughs you might find elsewhere on the web and more of a creative writing exercise that uses the game structure to provide a backdrop and ideas. Stay tuned and we’ll see how it all unfolds ūüôā

Ebb and Flow

I know my posts have been less than regular lately. My devotion to many of my interests rather ebbs and flows over time. With winter here the last few months, there were very few opportunities to capture nice pictures for scenes. Dark and gray with little daylight to see outside of work resulted in a lack of inspiration for poems and posts.

With spring around the corner, I am looking forward once again to capturing and sharing many lovely and relaxing scenes. I am also going to re-light an old flame, quite literally, as I bring my blacksmithing forge to life again and hope to share some of that fun hobby here as well!

Here’s to a fun and active rest of 2018! *Cheers*

Haiku: Lecture

A lecture needed,

Loud ranting given instead,

With the world I sympathize,

Wading through all of the lies,

Leaders do speak,

Their outlooks seem bleak,

Yet they’re playing with all of our lives!

Away without leave…

¬†Mindfully dwell here each day…

So much more to share.

Colorful Remedy

The inkling of color in a violet bloom,

Enough to lift deep winter’s gloom…


To see the vibrant colors of life,

Eases the ills of cold snowy strife…


So glad am I to have it close by,

To lift my spirit when it catches my eye.
