A Lack of Understanding Becomes Mankind’s Worst Enemy…

An offshoot species of parasite, normally only found in amphibians, has evolved to include humans in its bizarre, three-stage life cycle, which causes the host to grow extra limbs and other body parts.

Is there a way to break the cycle and stop the decline of the human race, or will phobia, paranoia and fear blind us and seal our fate?

My 2014…

It’s January 1st again, and my 2014 was a winding tale in its own right.

(But that’s another story…)

I sat out, one year ago to the day, with the intention of getting at least one written work published, whether it was for pay or exposure. I was determined to get my first publication, so I wrote, re-wrote, sought feedback, polished and refined. I ended up with nearly twenty new stories, which ranged from novel-length to flash-fiction, thirteen of which I completed. Out of those thirteen, six found homes, and four took runner-up spots in themed contests.

Amazing and exhilarating, to say the least. So, along with all the readers, I’d like to give thanks to the outlets that have provided these opportunities:

Two Warm Days in December

During an unusual spate of warm weather in the Mid-Western U.S., I ventured out to take advantage of what might be the last bit of warmth for the year…

Lost in the woods, and loving it!

My hiking companions: a backpack and walking stick

Got to see three bald eagles here on the first day, one flying solo, which landed just above me for a few amazing moments but declined to be photographed (flew away when I aimed the camera at him… LOL), as well as a pair that put on an impressive aerobatic display just above the water.

Nature can sure make one feel small at times… 🙂
