What Makes A Person A Friend?

What makes a person a friend? My daughter has a little playmate, another little girl her age. Let’s call the other little girl Nancy. They are the same height and they were born about a month apart. They see each other once a week if they are lucky, since we all have busy schedules, butContinue reading “What Makes A Person A Friend?”

Sunday Driver

I was driving to Savvy’s cousin’s 2nd birthday party, which was being held at her grandma’s house, and even though it’s a short drive, I’m running late and trying to hurry. The speed limits on the streets between here and there are pretty moderate, but for some reason traffic was a little backed up. UpContinue reading “Sunday Driver”

John Lennon, The Beatles, and Savvy’s Feet In Diamonds

Maybe John Lennon wasn’t full of crap after all.   When people said the title of one of the Beatles songs, “Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds” was a reference to the drug LSD, he denied it.

Here are a few alter egos and pretend writer identities that are still me: David Duanes Jessica McClintock ThoseContinue reading “Pen Names, Alter Egos, and Other Pretend Identities”
