Yes Son

yep it was

Yes, son. That was an Elk. Hunting season was always a big deal. We took hunters from all over, and these guided hunts were pretty much off-limits to youngsters wanting to tag-along. However, kind of late in the season, a special hunt for elk by some hunters who were more on a vacation than a serious hunt came up. We departed dark and early for the Squaw Peaks the next morning. Well, elk...Read On


Fortune Favors the Bold (and the Smart)

Chapter 1 June 5, 2011 I really hate interviews. Putting yourself out for rejection is one of the most nerve-wracking things that you could do. I really thought that I had the interview in the bag before I got there—I nailed the first two rounds of interviews. When I was waiting in the foyer of one of the largest medical research companies in the world, I felt like my confidence has...Read On

Now, as I stand in a doorway in the dark light of the sun, out near to that long winding road that leads to your door, and as I start the journey to you; I'll eat when hungry and drink when I'm dry and, live my life on the square.

Rise and Fall Ch 15

I'm the spark they refused to conceive~ Avantasia

"Oh so Dia is here, thank you for establishing that, Kitten." Fatima's cheek turned slightly red, "Kitten? What?" She abruptly shook her head, "what are you doing in my home?" She asked curiosity hinting at her tone. "Well Kitten, I am here for Dia, and you're her pet, are you not?" He gave her a taunting smirk. "I'm not a pet," she took the bait. Too easy, he sighed. The bathroom door...Read On


Who I am

Old Road

This was written about driving from a Neil Diamond concert at NMSU in December 2002.

Love Insurance

A mixed couple applies for love insurance.

A somber figure entered the room. The salesman sat down at the desk, opposite a distracted-looking man and an eager young woman. He jogged the papers in his hand and looked over them at the couple before him. The woman leaned forward, smiling expectantly. “Ah, before we discuss your premiums, perhaps it would be best if we first talked a little about why you’re here today,” he monotoned. ...Read On


Kiwiana VS Americana

My last story that I published on this site was deep and dark and very real life, so I thought I would lighten the mood a little this week and have a bit of fun with this story. I mentioned in one of my other stories, that American influences are gaining popularity here in New Zealand, and that I had a few questions so here we go. Some questions and maybe a rant or two, about the growing...Read On



Chapter twenty six

Tom took the dogs out for a walk while Kaye prepared lunch. He enjoyed the last few days; it was nice to just get away from the routine of being watched over every hour by his family.

As Tom made his way back up the driveway, he noticed Kaye on the porch with the phone...Read On


Rise and Fall ch 14

Sweet dreams see you in the twilight zone~ Avantasia

The speed Dia flew down the roads was enough to satisfy even the most hardcore thrill junkies. Her heart hardly increased a beat; the white Camaro was decent enough, but by far isn't one of Grey's best in his arsenal of vehicles. If he had chosen one of his best cars, she would have reached her destination far sooner while the sun dropped lower in the horizon. Little doubt she was farther...Read On


Midnight Ride (Revised)

Written in 2002 and took 10min. to really write on my knee.

Midnight Ride, - Looking back is a bad habit, and, the time has come for me to ride hard and fast, and shall we dance? As I saddle up, and head out riding through both time(s), and memories of the disagreeable past in this Vale of Tears we call life. As I pull away from nearly forgotten times, and faces, which fade and dim in the smoky fires of the mind. With the only tears now...Read On

Out here off of the beaten paths in an area unknown to most I can hear the thunder hitting and rolling across the hills and fields as if it were a bell being rung by an ironhand. Feeling at times as if I were thunderstruck from the rolling waves of thunder coming down, and caught out near an unused railroad spur as I found myself looking around knowing there was no turning back. Feeling my...Read On

He waited a few seconds, then put the truck in drive and rolled up beside the driver's side door. Kaye rolled her window down.

Out Of The Darkness

Things are not always clearer, even after you've stepped out of the darkness.



Eloise's First Deer

setting: 1959 Western Montana, sage covered Confederated Salish & Kootani Reservation range land

Lee handed his eight-year-old daughter a shotgun loaded with a pumpkin-ball. She couldn't shoulder the heavy shotgun correctly, and the pumpkin-ball had less than the range of a football field. It was safe enough. His thinking was that he would send Eloise down one side of the hill while he quietly went down the other, hoping that she would scare all the deer his way. She would believe that...Read On


First Wound

A peek inside my head...

“I will gladly endure pain after pain after pain if it means being happy in the end. Unless of course, it kills me, in which case I have not earned that happiness.” “That’s the definition of insanity you know.” “We’ve already established that I’m insane.” This was taken from a recent conversation I had with my best friend, who is going through a breakup with her boyfriend of 3 months....Read On
