Another Miami landmark, demolished →
This is personal. I’m getting tired of this. Is there a video of the destruction of the old Miami Public Library in Bayfront Park? This is the 2005 implosion of the EVERGLADES HOTEL, where we stayed when we (my family and a host of others from Key Biscayne) evacuated the island during Hurricane Donna in 1960. I have distinct and incredible memories of staying in this hotel, the sound of the...
My letter to Senators Rockefeller and Manchin re:...
TO my two Honorable and Wonderful Senators from the State of West Virginia: H.R. 3 has to be one of the most unconstitutional acts passed by the House of Representatives in 100 years. The money a woman earns from her work, that is paid to the US Government as tax, that is refunded to her, is HER MONEY, to use as she likes. Number ONE, she should not have to justify anything she does...
My letter to MSNBC regarding preempting THE ED...
Dear MSNBC: Why did you preempt THE ED SHOW for this royal wedding garbage? What are you thinking? The people who watch MSNBC at this time, who watch THE ED SHOW have zero, I repeat zero interest in a “royal wedding.” In fact, I’d say most lefties and progressives are hostile the very idea of a ruling-class and royalty and find the whole wedding commotion offensive in the...
My Elephant Words story for the week is “Lizard Brains: http://elephantwords.co.uk/2010/03/18/lizard-brains/ It’s not horror, and I apologize to anyone who likes to read my horror stories. Horror is a lot harder to write, in my opinion, but in general a family drama story is very complex and one needs to write the characters carefully.
My Elephant Words story for this week is “Displacement,” and it’s kind of dark and disturbing, so enjoy it if you can. http://elephantwords.co.uk/2010/03/12/displacement/

My latest Elephant Words story is “Alive.” Feedback would be welcome! http://elephantwords.co.uk/2010/02/16/alive/
George London just posted this quote from writer Alain de Botton on Twitter: “Writing opens up the otherwise unusual prospect of being violently disliked by strangers & training oneself not to mind.” I think this is true of any creator in any medium.

These are three stories that I highly recommend, because they are so good, from last October on Elephant Words. Horror stories but I think there is no better time for a good horror story than during the Christmas season. “The Road May Rise to Meet you, But the World Will Roll Against You” by Nicolas Papaconstantinou. ...
And my most recent story, called “Virtual Paradox.” Pulling from my background in counseling and psych nursing as well as my twisted mind. :) http://elephantwords.co.uk/2009/11/30/virtual-paradox/
This story is called “Descending Intervals.” It has nothing to do with a guitar pick or package of extra-strong mints, and for this I apologize to Ian Sharman. http://elephantwords.co.uk/2009/11/25/descending-intervals/
More of my Elephant Words stories. Please read, enjoy, let me know what you think. This one, “Dread and Action,” is perhaps more light-hearted than my usual stuff, but only if one thinks Jonathan Swift wrote light-hearted comedy. :) http://elephantwords.co.uk/2009/11/18/dread-and-action/
