Modern Weddings

Karen and I had a tiny wedding. There was myself, my bride, my bandmates, my brother who put together a feast for us, and his assistant. Oh yeah, there were also seven of my ex-girlfriends there. I know, I know, but Karen was the one who told me to invite them. I guess she figuredContinue reading “Modern Weddings”

Thanksgiving

This is one of the easiest blogs to write all year, because I feel like I literally live out the thanks I have. For being born in my family. For travelling around the world and embracing and being embraced by different peoples. For learning that pain is universal and inescapable. For meeting the different markersContinue reading “Thanksgiving”

Remind Me

If I ever find myself in Georgia and if I happen to walk one inch outside of the street crosswalk, do not appoint Linda Dunikoski to my case. Here. Here’s my wrists. Lock me up. Now she is by no means a beauty queen, and certainly not a doctor, but the way she cut downContinue reading “Remind Me”

Memories

I’d better write about this subject while I still have a horse in the race. I have always had a great memory. Of course, the Domestic Despot Karen says I have a very selective memory. I beg to differ. It’s just getting worse. I can remember the most minute details of the most immemorable timesContinue reading “Memories”

Obedience

     The morning sun peeked over the pink mountains illuminating the entire valley.      It was going to be another scorcher. The Yuki Valley could get that way for about six weeks out of the year, and it was eight days into it. One hundred degrees is hot anyway, but throw in seventy-five percent humidity,Continue reading “Obedience”

Lips

The very first thing I notice are a woman’s eyes. I have made no secret of my love of the female form, but those characteristics have to take a backseat to the “windows of the soul.” I believe you can read so much and uncover so much through eyes and facial expressions. Feline. Sexy. TheContinue reading “Lips”

The Bus Trip

It was supposed to be a first-class plane ticket home, but I ended up squandering my grant money from school on a doomed football bet. I had to take a bus all the way across the states, and it turned out to be quite the adventure. I boarded the Greyhound bus in South Bend, IndianaContinue reading “The Bus Trip”

Weddings

I was sitting here blasting away at some old-school OG Kush and I started thinking about weddings. I have been to very few weddings in my lifetime. In order, I have been to my own wedding, my Goddaughter’s nuptials, and my cousin’s. That’s it. Growing up as a way-too-confirmed bachelor, I was invited to manyContinue reading “Weddings”

Timelines

Such as in when is it OK to swear around children? Parents will go to extreme measures to shelter their children from hearing any curse words. They will interrupt you in mid-sentence if need be, to remind you to beware as you proceed. As you may know, Karen and I were not blessed with childrenContinue reading “Timelines”
