People often asked me: a memoir

Well, this happened today (one of many works I haven't completed):Chapter 1When I was young, as far back as I remember, anyway, people used to ask me, "What's it like to be disabled." At that time, I used to answer, "I just am."A few years later, I would answer, "I don't know any difference, so … Continue reading People often asked me: a memoir

How’s it working out for you?

This lock down... How's it working out for you? I thought it wasn't affecting me. I don't think this any more. It's my writing. Rather, it's my lack of writing which shed light to the contrary. One of the signs of depression is not doing what one enjoys doing, and I love to write. It … Continue reading How’s it working out for you?

Life rarely goes the way one expects. When you're younger, you think that school, and all its politics, … Continue reading Life is unexpected

My week and how I spend it

The sky is getting lighter earlier in the mornings and later in the evenings. It’s been overcast a lot, so I cannot say that it is getting brighter. It’s supposed to be sunny here most of this weekend; however, I see nothing but clouds over head. Perhaps, the cloud cover will burn off later. I … Continue reading My week and how I spend it

More philosophical ramblings

I’m convinced in our own little ways we are all fucked up. The reason I am bring this up is because I am reading a novel and I noted that everyone seems to be flawed in some way. It got me thinking. I am not perfect either, and then I got to thinking that none … Continue reading More philosophical ramblings
