  • Poetry – Beset by Satan

    Daily, I am beset by Satan in all his diverse forms – but the most persistent of all is the government.

  • Trump Thinks I’m a Fan…

    I got an email today from Trump, thanking me for all my support and for being a part of “Trump Nation”…um, I can’t stand you dude. Where does he get his information from? Does he just buy email lists and then pretend that you already support him, thinking that will somehow guarantee your support in […]

  • A Couple Political Thoughts

    1) The Trump phenomenon has made me come to a rather depressing conclusion. I honestly do not think Trump is inherently more racist than many others of his social class and age, but the strong narcissist in him would do anything to please his adoring fans and many of them seem to WANT the racist […]

  • Democratic Debates Thoughts & Opinions

    Did you watch any of the Democratic debates the last two nights? I watched and thought I’d share some of my thoughts and opinions. Most of my feelings of who I already somewhat liked (Bernie, Yang, Gabbard, Warren) haven’t really changed, even though I think some of them did better than others at the debates. […]

  • I’m Livestreaming on YouTube

    I’ve started livestreaming on my YouTube channel just for something to do and another way to connect with people. I’m doing most of the streams on my personal channel, rather than my toys and books channel. My personal channel has a lot less subs (around 200 compared to over 3,000), so if you are a […]

This writing form is where you write a story or other form of creative writing where each new sentence starts with a new letter of the alphabet, going sequentially from A-Z […]

  • More Elfchen Poems – Suicide, Trump, Potemkin

    Here are a few more Elfchen poems (5 line poems that have the following number of words per line: Line 1 = 1 word, 2 = 2 words, 3 = 3 words, 4 = 4 words, 5 = 1 word, the words on line 1 and line 5 should not be the same word). 1. […]

  • When Someone You Loved Embraces Ignorance

    I have to be careful how I word this post as there is a slight (but unlikely) chance the person I am talking about might read it. However, it has been weighing heavily on my mind so I wanted to talk about it. There was a person in my personal life I was really close […]

  • Poetry – Holy Warriors

    Holy Warriors By: Maranda Russell Holy warriors learn a lesson today. Their distorted agenda rightly condemns one righteous man setting a fire beyond their own narrow audience – but – to the best of my knowledge – this will be a one-time exception.

  • I Don’t Owe Anyone Anything

    Yesterday I had rather a bit of a breakthrough moment. Now, to most people with healthy backgrounds and relationships, this will likely be a bit of a “duh” moment, but to people like me who were groomed to be codependent caretakers, it is an immensely important realization. My “eureka moment” can be summed up in […]
