My Cat Sent Me a Rocket Ship

Instead of mourning the anniversary of my cat’s first death day, I watched a rocket ship take off. We were at the Kennedy Space Centre in Florida and there happened to be a launch scheduled for that day. It was a resupply mission to the International Space Station and my inner child couldn’t believe her […]

Self-Doubt is a Bitch

It said “I want “gold digger” to include [people] that use [others’] emotional labour to “evolve” and “become better people”. I have a better term for this, because my ex-wife is one […]

Shoot and Share Contest Results: Officially an Award-Winning Photographer!

The Shoot and Share contest is a worldwide competition that ANYONE can enter, and ANYONE can vote! Free and fair voting, and a free contest? Count me in! Still, I […]

Summer Vacation to Denver, Colorado; Many Happy Tears

When was the last time you were able to go on a summer vacation? For me, it’d been eight years (YES, 8!) since I’d been able to take a summer vacation. Or any vacation at all, for that matter. This summer vacation to Denver Colorado with Shawn was the first real break I’d been able […]
