The Perfect Day

Wed, 23 Sep 2015 14:44:50 +0000

The terraform ships searched the galaxy for the perfect conditions: The right amount of gravity. A reasonable level of atmospheric pressure. Planetary rotation that would cause just a hint of Coriolis Force. Biological support for grass, or a reasonable hybrid or facsimile of grass. After that, the rest was just icing on the cake: wood […]

Vanish To Sleep

Tue, 22 Sep 2015 14:43:45 +0000

It’s late. I’m tired. You’re tired. And you say, “I’m going to bed. Goodnight.” I say “Goodnight.” And before you vanish, I want to say something, anything, but all I manage to say is “I” before you vanish. I smile, and whisper the other two words, and tell myself “Maybe tomorrow.” Like I told myself […]

Pills

Mon, 21 Sep 2015 14:43:09 +0000

I used to be afraid all the time. The pills help with the fear. Sometimes. They cost a lot. And I need them to work. But the insurance I have through work won’t pay for them. So, I get pills and things that they will pay for, like birth control pills. or gum and patches […]

Aloe

Sat, 19 Sep 2015 11:46:31 +0000

We drove up to College Station to watch the Aggies play Rice. The Aggies won, but I got to yell WE SCORED FIRST! It was a hot day, like every season opener at Kyle Field, and the sunblock was just a way to feel slimy while my skin burned. When I got home, I stripped […]

Grass

Fri, 18 Sep 2015 18:46:33 +0000

I have to go to a funeral today. Most people get all dressed in black for funerals. I’m no exception, but I do like to go barefoot. The grass at the cemetery is amazingly soft. So much softer than the grass at the golf course or the city park. Almost as soft as the grass […]

Distance

Thu, 17 Sep 2015 18:46:28 +0000

Growing up, I was close to my parents, but as I got older, I grew distant from them. At first, it was a few yards… then a few miles. Pretty soon, they were in the next county over. By the time I was eighteen, there were several states in between us. Over the years, it […]

Games Of Thrones

Wed, 16 Sep 2015 18:46:26 +0000

Somebody tried to get me to read Game Of Thrones, but I’m not all that interested in games. Or thrones. So games with thrones? Doubly-uninteresting. Do they play Musical Thrones, where the nobles circle the thrones and all try to sit down when the minstrels stop playing? Last person sitting is the new king? Or […]

History Of Art

Tue, 15 Sep 2015 18:46:24 +0000

The East end of Main Street starts with a few yellow hand prints in the middle of the road. The hand prints give way to hunting scenes, and then simple geometric designs. As you travel West, the lines in the road progress through the history of painting… Babylonian… Persian… Greek… Roman… at Fulton Street, you […]
