Traveling by Road

America prides itself in being a nation of individuals. Individual people, individual ideals, and individual rights. One of the concepts that primarily American to my understanding, is the idea of a roadtrip.

How to Care for a Bookstore

All the bookstores I’ve loved are gone. I live in a small town surrounded by small towns. The businesses that survive are stores that sell what you need to survive as an animal organism. Bookstores don’t last long. Garage sales and secondhand stores are the only way to locally buy books. Thank heaven for the […]

Tell Me A Story

Words are shot at us like bullets all day long. “Good morning.” “Glad to see you.” “Where’s that spreadsheet?” “Would you like coffee?” Some things that we are told are nothing but a crock. Lies, is another word. “The check is in the mail.” “I love your hair.” “I think you’ve you lost weight.” But […]
