Realism has become moot. It’s not worth it anymore to paint a picture with your words of what a barn looks like unless there’s a character behind the description and so a point to your picturing; and even if those pictures are bleak and dismal—painted to evoke a sense of sadness or to be used as a backdrop to show the unfair or horrible world we live in—it’s senseless to show this without the mind behind it to ponder and question it or a heart behind it to strive against the bleak and dismal.

You could call it a mid-life crisis, I call it a breather. Continue reading
I love easter eggs. Who didn’t love tromping through their own backyards searching for brightly colored eggs which may or may not have contained chocolate, candy, money, or other minuscule delights?

Try it and enjoy!
