A New Lease on Life

My Holly Golightly - she's a Coton de Tulear

Although we had just listed our house on the market last week, it sold in six days.  And for $51,000 more than the list price! The closing date is April 14th, and I had not found a place to live for Holly and me. I will be renting a place to live – for the… Continue reading A New Lease on Life

A Horny Lady

I am guessing that it was the title that got your attention.  But if you were expecting a hot and tantalizing story about an amorous lady I once knew – sorry to disappoint. I have been swamped these past few weeks, and yesterday, my back hurt so much, I decided to remain in my pajamas… Continue reading A Horny Lady

A Last Goodbye

In February 2018, I wrote my Chasing a Dream story. In the story, I announced that I was separated from my wife Annette, after over forty years of being together. I do not like writing about very personal issues, especially because Annette is a very private person. However, we decided to stay in the home… Continue reading A Last Goodbye

An Accidental Artist

Jeffrey Owen Hanson (1993-2020)

Several months ago, I watched a news story about a legally-blind young man, who was really amazing.  He is an accidental artist, and although I am not an authority on art, his art inspires me. And here’s why. Jeff Hanson was born on September 30, 1993, with a genetic disorder called neurofibromatosis and then became visually… Continue reading An Accidental Artist

Needles and Pins

You would think that after eleven years, I would not be nervous about seeing the doctor, but I guess it’s just my mind fighting with my heart and leaving my body feeling like being pricked by ‘pins and needles.’ But that’s not until this afternoon at 2:00. Until then, I plan to go for a… Continue reading Needles and Pins

A Hasty Retreat

Rivendell Retreat on Bowen Island, BC

Today, I am leaving for three days of quiet and solitude at a spiritual retreat on a nearby Bowen Island mountain top. Although I no longer search for answers to questions that evaded me for most of my life – my spiritual growth and well-being have always been important. The retreat will allow me to… Continue reading A Hasty Retreat

Empty Sidewalks on Tobacco Road

Home where Danny was born and raised

This is a continuation of a previously published story that I wrote in 2012.  Please read The Summer of ’66 before reading this story; otherwise, it won’t make much sense.  Thanks! ~ Hugs, Danny The road to Tobacco Road had sidewalks, but there were none on Vittoria Road – or at least, none on the… Continue reading Empty Sidewalks on Tobacco Road

A Write to be Wrong

Today is Monday morning, October 26th, and the internet in my neck of the world (Langley) is not working. I planned to write a story about my twenty-year quest to brew the best cup of coffee ever (at home). It is a story that’s been percolating inside my hollow head for months, but I haven’t… Continue reading A Write to be Wrong

Covid19 Virus or the Flu?

Photo by Norm Colon

It was the day after my visit to Wreck Beach when it started.  Holly my dog, and I were lying on the bed when I suddenly felt a ‘cold shiver.’  It was about 6:00 pm, and I usually go to bed at that time to watch television for a couple of hours. I glanced at… Continue reading Covid19 Virus or the Flu?

A Nude Wreck on Wreck Beach

August 10, 2020 at Wreck Beach

August 10, 2020 I hope you aren’t offended by my photo. I spent the day, sunbathing in the nude for the first time in my life at the world-famous Wreck Beach in Vancouver, BC. But I wasn’t alone – there were several hundred sun worshippers of all ages, scattered along the 7.8 km beach. I’m… Continue reading A Nude Wreck on Wreck Beach
