1. What do Vegans Eat?

    In June I separated from my wife of ten years, and along with that transition I started my "vegan experiment" which has pretty much turned from an experiment into a real thing at this point. But one of the things that put me off from even starting the journey was…

  2. The end of an era

    Now that the divorce is final, and I'm free to choose my own path, to love who I choose, I thought I'd consolidate my thoughts over the past year and a half--because the journey of divorce is not a quick one. It takes time. It takes time, a period of…

  3. Equality Vs. Equity

    I love this image so much. It sparked quite a conversation on Facebook. One thing I quickly realized is that this image is open to interpretation. That wasn't what I got out of it at all! Seeing someone agree with him and make it about Milennials, I decided to share…

  4. The Defiant's Kase

    Chapter 4 of Neohumans Back on the bridge, Bex had hopped into the leaning console that served as both desk and chair, the array of screens visible as Nod took the pilot's chair. "Systems check. What are we running, Skae?" "Hot burn. Some stress fractures on the thrusters from the…

  5. Rescue

    Chapter 3 of Neohumans The charges were small and localized. They blew all at once, disabling the Harvesters. The harvesters, part something organic, part the strange Taker metal, collapsed to the ground. One of them crushed one of the "tenderlings", as Skae had referred to them, beneath them. Bex felt…

  6. Infiltration

    Chapter 2 of the Neohumans The Taker ship was a farm and slaughterhouse of staggering size, but most access points were well-protected. It could take hours for Skae to hack through it, or for them to blast through it, during which time the Taker ship would become aware of them,…

  7. The Jump

    The following is the first chapter of a story for NaNoWriMo. It's also a first draft. They were doing what they always did before a run: They were together in the ship's barracks pulling on their gear, lacing up boots, making sure all of the seals were air-tight on their…

  8. How Did This Happen?

    How did this happen? People will ask. And I don't just mean liberals. Conservatives seem rather baffled, too. Let's start with something we can all agree on now: Polls are bullshit. Clearly you can't take them to the bank. You can't even reasonably expect they reflect reality. Maybe that's because…

  9. Sour Grapes and Bittersweet Revenge

    This is so freaking weird that I kind of agree with Glenn Beck, who says: I am firmly against both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton as potential presidents of the United States of America. I believe that neither candidate has the values, decency or principles to be the leader of…

  10. Being Vegan: What's This All About For You, Anyway?

    In a previous post, I mentioned how I'd started my vegan journey. Recently on Facebook I shared a video provided by a group called Mercy for Animals. My girlfriend had reacted to it, and I thought it was such a powerful video I decided to share it. Then after being…
