Holiday Retail Rant
*This story was rejected by Vocal on the basis that it made assertions of personal beliefs. I can attest that there are a few personal beliefs involved, but this is a matter of fact, not fiction.
“You took something from me... Something so precious”. “You took something important from this world. Something the world needed”.
Playing the Hand I Was Dealt with Style...
In another story, I made mention of: “Proto me, not being able to withstand the testosterone onslaught during gestation.” When I was born, gender dysphoria wasn’t a thing. We were told that boys have a penis, girls have a vagina and that’s that. Of course it was a thing, but it didn’t have a clinical definition and even though it does today, for some reason it’s still something of a debate.
Bear White Knuckles
"Someday I'm gonna hike up that mountain and climb that fire tower." These were the resolute, determined words of my friend Jim.
National Picture Frame Manufacturing Company
Sometime after my fathers return from WW2, he got a job in a small department store called Revsin’s. He was hired to work in the tiny picture framing shop that they had. Before long, people began to realize that he had a gift for framing.
Entrepreneur, Mistress, Goddess... Lexi
I had what she was looking for. An Omega personality. Introverted but still social, sensitive, somewhat intelligent but I’ll never be able to acknowledge that and a hopeless romantic with deviant desires.
Flip the Script
How do I do this? I could be trite and say: Just trust in yourself. I don’t imagine that would make a very good story. Instead, I’m going to tell you about a person who I worked with for a few years. He was the most aggravating person I’ve ever known. Looking back, I used the term hateful to describe having to work with him on occasion.
Voyage of the Maiden
I was walking around the playa when I came across an art installation. Imagine eight 2x4’s planted vertically in the ground in an octagonal pattern, ten or twelve feet across. Like if you laid a huge stop sign on the ground and the posts extended upward from each corner creating a cylinder kind of framework.
Delicious Moments and a Lovely Way of Being
Are you a Light Bringer or a Trash Monster? We’ll use the term trash monster to describe those who don’t use their light, don't know how to use it or don't know they even have one. If you have any interest... you’ll learn what it means to become a bringer of light.
Chert: A Lenapi Story
It was somewhere in the early 1930’s when Fred had his tenth birthday. His parents were keen to celebrate the milestone with a cookout, grandma’s famous fry bread and a pumpkin cake that his mom made. They were at home with family and friends.
It was an absolutely beautiful and warm, late spring day. A Saturday afternoon in 1946 when a group of young women went strolling about town in search of adventure.
I worked on it while they watched a movie. There must have been six pounds of multi-colored sweet bell peppers. I’ve always enjoyed cooking. Pushing my thumbs down past the stem and ripping the peppers in half was a meditation. Crushing garlic cloves for my secret garlic butter sauce. A great time to reflect on the last few weeks and what my friend Ryan and I had been through.
