A Conspiracy of Ghosts

Oh, yes! I do believe in what others call "ghosts" , "shades", "specters", or "phantoms". Myself, I would prefer "visitors", seeing as they never stay too long and, like any proper guest, they don't leave messes... with some exceptions. These past-human...

Why Blogs Are Good Therapy

I've always been a talker. I talk to strangers in slow-moving lines as we wait; I talk to little children who catch my eye, as they sit in grocery carts like animated dolls; I talk to my microwave when it bongs incessantly because I haven't retrieved...

Book Flies

I was doing a Book Signing not long ago, sitting behind my well-appointed table of books, candy, bookmarks and a big smile, when I began to notice people's reactions to my presence. I don't consider myself a particularly scary looking person and I was...
