Yeah, You Can Milk A Beaver!

“Amateurs sit and wait for inspiration, the rest of us just get up and go to work.”– Stephen King I’ve been trying to write this post for a couple of hours now and all I have are a whole lot of words on a page.

Maybe I should just post that one sentenceContinue reading “On The Winds Of Nowhere”

They shatter into a millionContinue reading “Nobody Panic But…”

Take Courage In The Silence

“Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.” – Winston Churchill The yelling is getting out of control.
