I did it. It’s been awhile. As I work the night shift at my job (yes, I actually have a job) I am finally able to publish Ramblings Of A Crazy Mind. The ironic part is that I wrote in three days because I was getting writer’s block on another story I was writing. You…

With so much calamity going on in the world, it is refreshing to be a horror fan. We always look for ways to find the disastrous, the destructive and the deadly in every interaction we have. Does that make us bad people? Not really. Sometimes recognizing the bad helps us rejoice in the good. For…

Waking up at 4:00 am to go to work at McD’s, where homeless were the number one customers, wasn’t enjoyable to Jonathan, anymore; to add further disgrace, imagine when it was a rainy morning. Thankfully, though, his house on De La Vina Street was about five blocks away from his work, which made his reality…
