About Dreamcatcher



I came to the blue site and sister site in 2009. I was more active early on but got distracted by life in general. I am retired now and have more time on my hands so it is my intention to energize my mojo and try writing again.

I have a short but amazing list of friends and I am grateful for their kindness to an old man. Hopefully, they won't mind me stalking them now and then for ideas.

Topic: Challenge: The Moon
Posted: 09 Aug 2019 15:13

I've reread the challenge rules and feel that 1500 words is near impossible (especially for Carl)... and 1500 words without sex is unbearable.

You mean you are admitting defeat?

Carl would run out of crayon first.

Topic: Challenge: The Moon
Posted: 09 Aug 2019 14:06

I would like to offer the following challenge. There will be no judging and no winners or losers but let's give it a go, yes?

My Challenge:

Considering that 2019 is the Fiftieth anniversary of the Apollo Eleven mission to land the first Human Beings onto the surface of the Moon, that will be the subject.

A short story about moon travel. That is it. It can be anything so long as it involves travel to or from the Moon or anything that results therefrom.
ie. A moon base. A desire to travel to the moon. A dream, anything.

So, the rules:

1) Prefix title with Moon Challenge:
2) Between 1500 and 4000 words
3) Suitable for all ages from a minimum 13+ meaning no obscene language, no excessive violence, no sex . It can be scary to a degree.
4) It must not have been published previously , here or anywhere else.
5) Is subject to all normal site rules not covered by the above.

So, what do you think? Shall we give it a go?

Like all challenges there is no deadline so just have fun.

I've reread the challenge rules and feel that 1500 words is near impossible (especially for Carl)... and 1500 words without sex is unbearable.

Only 3 of us so far? Where are all the mooners? C'mon... after my weekly astronaut training, and duties as Alien Hunter, if I can find the time, so can others...

Congrats on the RR for the poem <img src="/images/emoticons/hello2.gif" alt="hello1">

Now for a longer piece...? Go on, you know you want to <img src="/images/emoticons/laughing7.gif" alt="laughing6">

Working on it...

Two of you it is.

You will have another go, though... won't you? <img src="/images/emoticons/icon_thumleft.gif" alt="thumbright">

If you only knew how many times I've heard that... jus' sayin'...

There Was A Time

There was a time I thought that I would live forever Nothing was out of reach The horizon held my hopes and dreams I relished every endeavor.   There was a time The wind trailed through my lion’s mane My roar loud and fierce A bounce in my every step Each link strong within my chain.   There was a time Every challenge was an adventure The thrill of the gamble All or nothing ...

26 Letters

26 letters are all it took A few words A couple of sentences Voila! You have a book.   26 letters make up the alphabet Soft and hard sounds Vowels and syllables Silent letters are a mystery yet   26 letters and a language is spoken Emotions are traded Hate and love emoted Hearts are broken   26 letters communicate your thoughts Typed on a screen or texted by phone Contact...

At some point there will come a time. In a moment not of your choosing. You’ll know when. It was all borrowed time anyway. On loan, never to be owned. The path will grow more narrow. The light will grow dimmer. A soul once uplifting, now heavy and held hostage. Fear is just a lack of information. Your senses seek familiarity. The smell of fresh-cut grass on a Sunday afternoon. ...

Tribute - Dirtymartini

On this day of memories and mourning, we should remember a beloved SS member and all he accomplished in his too-short life.  Below is a link to his respected and famous poem dedicated to the 911 event. Please take a moment to read and comment.   https://www.storiesspace.com/stories/poetry/we-shall-never-forget-911-tribute.aspx...

Back to School Challenge - Viewmaster Memories

Click-kuck Back-to-school 1st grade: A 6-year-old boy sitting on a desk. His shoes made of raggedy torn canvas as most play shoes were back then. Indiana snow shin-deep walking to school. A teacher calling him to the front of the class. Everyone laughing as she removed his wet shoes and socks and rubbed his feet to get them warm. He felt so ashamed and hated her that day. Only many...

Moon Challenge - The Prince

There was no grand design. No all-powerful paranormal being calculating the “ifs” and “buts” of existence with pie charts and ledgers and a magic wand. It was through the destiny of random chaos and chance and proximity that the universe began sorting itself nearly fourteen billion years ago. Like marbles rattling around in a shoebox, meteors and comets alike began a relentless assault...

Recommended Read Definitely Not Moon Challenge - Moon's Glow

Quarter-moon, harvest moon, blood moon, lover’s moon A cow jumped over the moon, Was I once so very young And grew old so very soon?   An ebbing tide, a waning heart, the tears of hopes betrayed So far away, yet here on earth The moon is much the symbol In every skit of life that’s played.   A cardboard box, a wooden sword, a towel makes a cape A rocket ship to the moon The...

More Doc Johnson-isms...

Why is it that when you order items to be delivered from your local lumber yard for a home project, the missing item is always the one you needed most to do the project. Does anyone else think that porch pirates work in conjunction with certain drivers of package delivery services? Why is it that when the instructions say “No Tools Required”, you always need tools? Do you ever wonder why...

I hate this kinda crap. There’s nothing worse than when someone you care for dies and everyone stands around crying and the over-hyped lamentations begin. Somehow, whatever faults and shortcomings they had have now been replaced by qualities of sainthood. I always try to stand at the back at these sort of things. Rolling my eyes is a private thing and rightly so. I’m not a complete jerk....

The Flower And The Bee

Come with me, my love. Your flower awaits. Let's wander In the anther and frolic In the sea of pollen. The time is fertile To taste the nectar Where the bees Collect the pollen Savoring the nectar That becomes the honey Stored in the honeycomb of the heart For the cold winds of winter....

Prayer For The Dead

Forgive me, Obituarius, Oh, dark knight. With pen in hand of ignominy In my garret, Sacrosanct sans scrote. A darkness at the end of my inkwell Scripts a nebulous gauzy world of ghost Amidst quotes from the vicar of the undead. The mind of nomads with Byzantine wings Leave footprints in the sand As cold winds blow across Medina, With pen in hand of ignominy.      ...

I, Vampire

Up the lattice and down the stairs my Scarlet awaits midnight kisses, as she sleeps beneath satin sheets, until waking to an eternal dusk.   I Vampire, Lord willing me my thirst, in shadow of the pale moonlight as an ensemble of cellos bow, strings of resin snow.   Touching your warm breasts with my lips of cold magenta, a frozen December, my love, as your eyes fear not me.   Come fly with...

Are you close to this one? I was born and raised in Southern Cali. I'm used to them.
We have had a couple of 7.1's up here. Alaskans are used to them just like Californians.
