04.28.22 Reach the Beach. (Journal)
Hey guys! Long time no hear. Just returned back home from our annual 'family trip' to see my big Sis Nick and her fam out in SoCal near L.A. It was such an amazing time!

04.23.22 Under the Waves (Poetry)

This poem was written in 'real time' on 4/23/22 @ 9:49 AM PST

12.30.21 The Blinking Twilights (Poetry, 2020)
Remember when 2021 held such promise? After an extremely bleak 2020 filled with deaths of loved ones and mass confusion the world over, 2021 seemed like a shining diamond on the parched horizons. Did 2021 live up to my expectations? No. Nothing does. With the global pandemic still burning, it's been yet another rough year... Continue Reading →
12.24.21 What Christmas Means To Me (Journal)
I know this will sound cheeseball to some, so please feel free to skip to the end and have an awesome holiday! So... I thought about writing this up a few weeks back and for some reason, I put the thought away since that post was more of a 'wish list,' but not the kind... Continue Reading →
