When I started this blog, I promised myself I would post at least 2 articles a week until my year anniversary on February 14, 2015, excepting a week’s vacation about midway through. I’m proud to say that so far I’ve been true to my word, and next week, friends, is that week of vacation.

But it’s just a vacation from doodads and gadgetry. A few months ago, I put a set of short stories about my grandparent’s wedding day aside for other things, but I’ve found a nice group of writers who have given me feedback on it. So I plan to rework them paper and pen style, yo, while I’m at the lake. Then I plan to repost the new and improved versions.

And now that I’ve posted it, chances are much more likely I’ll actually do it instead of whiling away my vacation sleeping on random piers and eating Cheez-its and ambrosia salad.

So off I go, see you in a week or so. Until then, enjoy this lovely scene of children getting ready to take a swim.

If you’re on the facebooks, and would like further insights into me brain, please like the new t.r.c. page! It’s pretty thin right now, but I promise exclusive stuff over there soon.

For example, I saw this great play called Buyer & Cellar starring the talented Michael Urie from Ugly Betty all about the imagined retail position at the real mall Barbra Streisand built in her basement. Here’s the Cheesy Poetry I wrote on Sunday:

Beautiful day
To see a play
With your sweet bae.

Give it a go,
grab any beau,
take in a show!

So, there’s that to look forward to and, of course, my inevitable Nobel Peace Prize for Literature.

Suitcase Of Memories

Very excited to talk with Sean of 1984 (For the Love of Pop’s Greatest Year) in a few minutes! If you haven’t checked his blog out yet, do it now. Wax nostalgic about the Thompson Twins, Michael Jackson, the Eurythmics, and Madonna. Even if you weren’t upright in 1984 you still know the works of these artists.

And look for our conversation sometime before June about the iconic Cyndi Lauper song, Time After Time.


I bet you just busted out singing the chorus!
