Ok, below are little bits and pieces, scraps and crumbs, flotsam, jetsam, moreorless-sum and sundry fal-dal-ra collecting on the virtual honeycombed silicone mat of a desktop. They may or may not...

Dog Pile in Normal entries

Maybe I should have been writing here or maybe there. I don’t know, like everybody else I think I have something to add. I don’t, not really, and nobody else does either, not really. It’s like we...


This is a recipe for a damn fine topical. Warning don’t read if wherever you are the law says you’re are too young to read stuff or you can’t even think about such things. Um, this stuff will not...

Idle hands in Normal entries

It’s damn near dead center February 2020. I’m having a hard time writing about anything except what an asshole our president is, although sometimes I think and/or write about the dangerous things...

Puckered Politic in Normal entries

I been following the hearing in the senate (I know, some folks want to call it other things like a trial, a witch hunt, a cake walk etc.) even to the point of watching large chunks live. One thin...

New in Normal entries

It’s the 12th of January and shit, seems like I’m already off to a bad start. Let’s see, Three deep hits of mimosa sugar concentrate in Listening to Warren Zevon Keep Me In Your Heart For a While...

New Year in Normal entries

Some New year’s we creep up slowly on until we are sure we have them five by five in our sights and drop them for the meat. Some New Year’s we slide into head first trying to beat the ball to the...


It’s the dark end of October, Time is going to jump back in a couple of weeks, but, no matter what the clock says it takes longer for the light to reach me. Sunlight that is, my light bulbs work ...


I was thinking about stuff, and then, later, thinking about more stuff or the same stuff either in a different way or so much later that I’d forgotten I had been thinking about it. Autumn, for in...

Other people's business in Normal entries

When we’ve put the evening machines to rest and blown out the lights, stilled the voices, and let the gummy windows the carry us from one dream to the next … scratch that. I woke in a widow’s vei...

Dohdee dohdee doh in Normal entries

Without altering events or outright lying there are two ways I could have made this entry ( the one that is about to happen and/or is happening) a lot more dramatic; I could have started off on ...


The season seems to be changing right this minute. This is when I understand Haikus, how all the sorrow and joy and personal history of a person with a pen can be encoded in a few lines, a symbol...

Frrom the Archives in Normal entries

“I miss the song of cicadas.” “Song? That screech like a crow just ate a powerline? You’re just being dramatic.” That’s how I remember my first marriage. When we first met she would bake brownies...

Flash Friday 8-1-14 A biter, crunchy, assualt in Flash Friday Aug. 1, 2014, 9 a.m. | Public The door opened, he came in with the bitter cold, a stiff wind and a pea coat. I hadn’t seen him in t...


Given 20/20 foresight and 20/20 hindsight I’m pretty fucking A-Okay with how my brain works. Sure, I’d like to try a fancier model with a dashboard like a leer jet or a Maserati, but those things...

1976 in Normal entries

I’m sure I’ve told this story before, probably over qualified and without the sound effects. The song should be embedded, and whether you like it or not crank it to kind of get the idea of what ...


When I was collecting pipes, the only reason serious American pipe collectors would get a meerschaum was to coax a patina over the years. That, or, liking meerschaum, which meant getting serious ...


It’s a weird fucking time to be awake; summer of 2019, not whatever glowing hour of late June it is. I’d say I haven’t been writing because what’s the use, those that find our bones won’t catch t...

Seriously in Normal entries

So, I’m out in the world and I sez to the world I sez “Hey, lets get some Popeyes” and the world is just happy I didn’t quote my brother with a “Fuck it, get a bucket” as oft is my wont. I tell t...


Even before coming back here to live I had written of the anarchist, of how he and another friend took me on the tour of where industry used to be and the fall of Oldsmobile. When I had first com...


This guy gets paid to write this poorly written and unedited drivel, again I ask what the literal fuck. If digital is going to replace analog there will need to be the position of digital editor....


I had good intentions towards this journal when the year began, I really did. Obviously not such good intentions that I would abandon it for the first third of the year. Light decided to make som...


I love amazon reviews, readers digest should have a joke column with Amazon reviews, always funnier than humor in uniform. It’s funny, for wristwatches Amazon is the only place I know of that has...

Time in Normal entries

I’ve always been fascinated with time, mostly in the abstract sense, that force through which we are born and die, invisible and rigid. As a child that seemed both magical and macabre. The, later...


I’m not sure how or when it happened but I’ve lost, or misplaced, my drive or inclination to write journal entries. Drive might be an overstatement of sorts but I don’t know quite how to use enli...
