M’s Art and Cafe Press

Thursday, July 31st, 2008

In the not too distant future, I’m hoping to get some of my photography on some of this stuff, as well, but I haven’t done […]

A Voice in the Dark

Sunday, July 27th, 2008

The Forgotten Author

Saturday, July 12th, 2008

Have you forgotten me, or have I forgotten you? Has it been weeks since I’ve said anything? Have I been quiet on all the message boards? Is everything alright?
How are you? (For the record, I’m fine. Nothing wrong today that wasn’t wrong before I vanished, which is to say everything’s […]
