Perhaps… during those cold winter nights when I would steal off to see my “flame” in Wappingers Falls, NY, being on fire was the only thing keeping me warm. [Mind you, the “Plinky Prompt” specifically asks “What’s the most on fire you’ve ever been?” So I am simply trying to pull that back into my […]

Barely four weeks ago, as I sat with my new Cubanita friend waiting to hear “Modest Mouse,” I plucked out my iTouch and scrolled through pictures, briefing her on each one:“There’s my sister… I get to see her in a week!”“There’s JP, I loved his little baby mullet…”“Oh, I love that picture…”“And, that is my […]

So much to write about visiting Monica… so many adventures. We found mermaids, we visited a cheap-ass trailer-trash spa that was so wonderful and relaxing I could sneeze!
