A 3:00 AM Vengeful Ghost leads to the Grumpy Old Man Getting His Revenge

  “Perhaps we are the same person. Perhaps we have no limits; perhaps we flow into each other, stream through each other, boundlessly and magnificently. You bear terrible thoughts; it is almost painful to be near you. At the same time it is enticing. Do you know why?” ― Ingmar Bergman, Fanny och Alexander “To […]


Finding More

“Take some more tea,” the March Hare said to Alice, very earnestly. “I’ve had nothing yet,” Alice replied in an offended tone, “so I can’t take more.” “You mean you can’t take less,” said the Hatter: “it’s very easy to take more than nothing.” “Nobody asked your opinion,” said Alice.” ~ Lewis Carroll “Well, here at […]

Lifting The Curtain – Part 1

*A guest post from The Artist* ……. a glimpse behind the scenes! I thought “My time as a half-millionaire” would be a good guest post today, because today I’m selling the thing that created that time, for a pittance. From the Dickensian beginning, this started when I left law school in the nineties. I left, […]
