From Bombs To Beauty

We built bombs there. Big ones. Torpedoes, actually. The Mark XIV big green was assembled there. At the end of WWI the US Naval Torpedo Factory on the waterfront in Arlington, Virginia was built and put into service. The idea was to prepare in case of future world conflicts. The powerful and terrifying weapons built […]

A Blanket Proposal

It wasn’t his best day. Not even close. After a very long obedience in the right direction, he let down his guard, had a bit too much to drink and wound up in a highly compromising situation. Had he been able to stay awake, he would have been embarrassed and humiliated. But he was in […]

On A Scale of 1 to 10…

Picture a scene in a really bad B movie–the main character slowly wakes from a deep coma. Eyes open, thoughts forming, but unable to move. Trapped in the frightening fog between dead to the world or alive to the pain. That was me. I had just spent six hours under general anesthesia and was now […]

Time Stands Still: when you are in pain, waiting for a promise to be fulfilled or enduring an intensely boring speech. The way we describe the […]

Some Assembly Required

It was a near-death experience. Quite literally my life flashed before my eyes. Strange thing is my older brother, Ron, shared that ordeal at the very same instant. Might be hard to believe, but it was caused by a clown! You see, my Dad had visited Italy. He brought back two beautiful blown glass clowns made […]

Let Me Feel The Pillars

It was the perfect place to endlessly recycle every failure that had brought him there. The grinding mill in a prison. A recurring nightmare from which he could not wake up. A gruesome ground-hog day where his failure replayed in a slow motion endless loop. As he walked in the ruts he was creating with every trip […]
