Maid Marion

Tomorrow, Games Workshop launches their new edition of Warhammer 40,000 in the U.S. I had a little piece written up about how I was proud of where the company is today, how the new rules were exciting, and other such things.   Then I looked at Facebook. And decided I needed to write a different […]

Struggling

Struggling.   I’m struggling a little in more than a handful of places in my life right now.   The commute for my job takes a huge chunk of flexibility and time out of my day. I dread when snow and ice season hits. I’m slowly getting used to it, but still worry how it […]

No Emergency Contact.

Over the weekend, while playing with woodworking tools, I did some damage to myself. It was kinda gross, very alarming, and necessitated a trip to the ER. I’ve been cautioned that it will take me months to recover the use of my right hand. Stubborn Steve says “Yeah, I can shave some of that time […]

Martian Spiders

The descending  emphasis on the words “We can be us, just for one day”, is what always makes them speak to me. Everyone has a favorite David Bowie song, and “Heroes” is mine. A wistfully haunting song that I’ve always interpreted as the exchange between two lovers who have something wonderful, but are choosing to […]

Going Home

December 5th this year was an important day. Not for everyone mind you, but for certain folks, it was the day where a friend’s death passed its equinox. Waddhana Chhom Prom, known as Nana to anyone American, silently crossed over the line of being dead longer than he was alive. As many of us that […]

Roll for initiative, It’s Gary Gygax day!

[This was originally written on July 27, 2015 – but not posted immediately to preserve the surprise.] Today .. I ordered some dice. That might not seem like a big deal, and truth be told it really isn’t, but that one task carried a lot more significance that you might think. December 5th this year […]

Letting go …

Will I ever send this as a letter? No. Would you even read it? Doubtful. But with love, like math, it’s always good to show your work 🙂 Our relationship. It was short, it was mean, we fought dirty – twisting the knife. To hurt. Both of us in different ways, for different reasons. I’m […]

A snit changed the world.

My dad was a consummate flea-market shopper. One of his hobbies on Saturdays he didn’t work, was to travel amongst the various tag-sales, garage sales, rummage sales, and flea-markets in the surrounding towns. Sometimes he would take rides up into Vermont or New Hampshire if it looked to be a nice day. If one of […]

Blue Summer

There’s a certain feeling that goes with the early-morning of summertime. A special time when most people are asleep, when part of the world is still moving, and interesting things are happening – but most of the world is oblivious.   A humid summer night : Countless role-playing games ended at one or two o’clock […]

Gozer the .. Yazirian?

There was a time in my life when the most difficult decision I had to make on a Friday evening was if I was going to pretend to be a Vrusk or a Yazirian. What to make for dinner? Should I go out with this person that contacted me online? What birthday party/school social event […]
