the NightClub Diaries Chapter 3 Creep City

     We had lots of bouncers that came and went, but there were a few that seemed more permanant.

The Queen

The     Queen.   I live in a small village.   When I was little, I wished and wished that I could be a princess.  I wished on every star, I threw pennies in wells.  I even resorted to holding my feet up when we crossed a bridge in our wagon.  I just knew if I was a princess that my life would be perfect.  Perfectly magical.     But some times what you wish for and get, isn’t always what you really want....more

christmas State of Mind

I’m in a Christmas state of mind. The second Halloween is over, I would really like to dive right into Christmas.  I don’t like Thanksgiving.  No one is really thankful that day any more than any other.  And It’s just an excuse to get together and stuff yourself until you are ready to puke. I don’t even like Turkey.  Does anyone?  Really? Or that Cranberry crap that’s shaped like a can?  Or Stovetop Stuffing?  Blech!...more

No Place Like Home

No Place Like Home-     Trying to figure out what to write and all that keeps popping up in my head is "Somewhere Over the Rainbow". Now what?  Do I have some kind of Dororthy complex?  I don't think so, but what is it about the whole Wizard of Oz thing?    Maybe, just maybe, the Wizard of Oz cast of characters represents who we are at different times of our lives.  No, I'm not crazy, I think it's been clear but no one else has figured it out!  We are all just living somewhere over the rainbow....more
