Resilience and Forbearance

I used to take a modicum of pride in the levels of my resilience and forbearance. But the older I get, the less likely I seem able to shake off the dread that Make America Great Again (gag!) casts into the air nearly everywhere I look.   Here’s a prime example:   I went to…

I’ve Been Two-Timing You

If it seems I’ve been two-timing you, it’s true. I’ve spent more time  over on my HireMe.WordWhisperer.net website and blog than I have here recently, I think.   That’s because I don’t often have a lot of topical information or insights for my professional copy/content/features-writing and editing blog. But two things came up recently that…

Most of them, as it turns out, are music stations; a dozen or so are Christian stations; only 17 of them look even remotely like they might be interested in interviewing me about DeForest Kelley. All 17 have nostalgia-era entertainment shows…

I Don’t Understand the GOP at All

I don’t understand the GOP at all.   Or perhaps I understand the talking heads of the GOP (and their flunkies on Fox and Christian television and radio) only too well. It appears, now, many of them have been in bed with Russia, too, and they’re afraid if Trump gets investigated, they’ll be caught in…

Tacoma PRIDE Festival Report

Edward, Lisa (LGBTQI allies) and I attended the Tacoma PRIDE Festival yesterday for a couple of hours until it got unbearably warm. It was a lot of fun, and I got some extra buttons, some rainbow and trans flags, and a red cape from the BECU booth that reads FREE TO BE. They were all…
