To find stories currently being written, edited and gathered for first publication. In other words, my first book Oo(^_^)y-~ please go to the category entitled, For The Book!

4/17/19: Notre Dame (1976)

We sang en masse below the ancient vaulted stone Our clear young voices rising, falling determined to honor this unique privilege Tones of praise entwined in glistening color shining through the glass crafted so many centuries ago illustrious illumination embracing all Over ten thousand souls welcoming our gift cheering us on begging for more we [...]

3/4/19: For a moment…

"Brian, Brian!" I awake to see my roommate's excited face smiling down at me. For a moment... I'm not sure where I am. "Sorry I'm in your bed Aaron." "Never mind that, I've been seeing 23's all morning Brian." "Yea, so... ?" I roll out of the bottom bunk where I'd been napping. I usually [...]

7/13/18: An Early Attempt (page #9)

Definitely, I'm liking the margin doodle art in these pages more and more. I fleshed out the story in this one (and a few that follow) in this blog last year starting here  in a sequence of several posts which also include the lyrics to a song I wrote many years ago on the same topic. [...]
