Welcome to My Idiotic Nightmare

I use that title because my dreams are neither profound nor revelatory. Some people are told in their dreams to take the Son of God to Egypt, others (ahem) spend their nightly sleep in a bizzarro-world of stupidity, staring in wide-eyed disbelief at the trash their brains are forced to unload every night.

Only once can I remember a dream revealing a really great story idea that actually stuck. It’s on my list and I hope to write it in the next couple of years. In the meantime, I’ll have to get by as one who finds meaningful dreams in the waking world. This isn’t hard to do, considering the absurdity of what passes as “normal” these days.

I’m in my sixth decade on this beautiful ball. I know better than to act like any of the craziness surrounding us is anything novel. There is nothing new under the sun, and I’ve seen enough suns come and go to vouch for that.

This is the new version of my website. I’ve decided to share more content and maybe build a tribe of like-minded travelers. There are links to subscribe to my weekly newsletter, and also links to purchase my books. They aren’t expensive, and I like to dabble in different genres. If you’re an omnivorous reader like I am, maybe we can be friends.

It’s a crazy world. We just live in it. I try my best to make sense of it. Hope you’ll come back once in a while.
