Boston

The only one where he mentions the bombs

Ok, I let the whole bombing thing sidetrack me. After the pressure cookers blew right down the street, I had nothing to say. That would be a good excuse for abandoning my task of posting every day, but since I really don’t need an excuse to stop things, I’m just going to chalk it up […]

Stand with Boston

Originally posted on The Boston Harbor Picayune:
As reports of the dead now rising and one eight year old boy among the fallen, we ask that you simply pray. We are strong. We will pull together.We will continue. We will have answers in time and we will have justice. Tonight we just ask that you…

The one where he comes across as a jerk

Every day of my life

The one where he throws out another poem

But, I do the best I can.

The one where he writes a poem

Alice

The one where he found himself

A few years ago, a friend called me out of the blue and said, “I’m going to start travel nursing again. Come with me.” And, as would be expected, I quit my job and left my adopted home of Boston for… well, whatever pastures we happened to run across.   Both of us had our […]
