  • Tips for Beginning Copywriters by Stacy Green 5/22/2015 5:28:54 AM
    The majority of people do not even notice the presence of copywriters in their life. However, the products of their work are everywhere; they surround us. However, do we exactly know who is a copywriter and what does s/he do? Let us try to make it cl... more

  • The Chaos Kid by Dorien Grey 5/20/2015 3:45:39 AM
    Okay, students: today's assignment is to select four words which best encapsulate/summarize your outlook, experience, and level of emotional development. It's a fun and telling exercise, and I'd enjoy hearing what you come up with. Choosing ... more

  • The Endless Loop by Dorien Grey 5/18/2015 2:57:42 AM
    Human beings seem somehow incapable of fully acknowledging the fact that the gift of life does not come without a price, which grows steeper with every passing year, or an end. Probably this is a good thing, since it keeps us from worrying too much a... more

  • The Tinfoil Hat by Dorien Grey 5/14/2015 2:48:09 AM
    Sometimes I wonder if those people who go around wearing tinfoil hats for protection from some unknown, mysterious "them" might not have something. I have no doubt whatsoever that my computer is fully aware of both my inadequacies and my fru... more

  • The Losing Battle by Dorien Grey 5/11/2015 3:00:32 AM

  • When Then Was Now by Dorien Grey 5/7/2015 3:05:14 AM
    Every now and then I like to go back to the letters I wrote my parents while in the Navy—and which have been published in e-book form as A World Ago—a Navy Man’s Letters Home, 1954-1956, to see what I was doing on the same date nearly 60 years a... more

  • The Price by Dorien Grey 5/4/2015 2:54:40 AM
    The “gift of life” is not actually a gift: it is a balloon-payment loan which can be rescinded at any time. It’s been said that no one can fully understand something until and unless they have personally experienced it. This is certainly tru... more

  • Goulash by Dorien Grey 4/30/2015 3:02:44 AM
    I never cease to be fascinated with how the mind—and, of course, my mind specifically—works. I admire those whose minds and thoughts are like a well organized closet where there is a place for everything and everything is in it’s place. Mine is m... more

  • Obsession by Dorien Grey 4/27/2015 2:45:20 AM
    Obsess (verb): preoccupy or fill the mind of (someone) continually, intrusively, and to a troubling extent I don’t like to think of my emotional growth as being stunted, but I freely admit to its having slowed to a crawl by the time I was si... more

  • Over the Rainbow by Dorien Grey 4/23/2015 2:48:32 AM
    I am eternally grateful to my mother for giving me a fascination with and love for words. It was she, by reading me stories even before I was able to understand many of the words—though I loved the sounds—who opened the doors of wonder contained in t... more

  • The Past-Clinger by Dorien Grey 4/20/2015 3:42:53 AM
    I just got out of the shower and began getting dressed, starting to put on the same pants I wore yesterday—the pants my friend Gary had pointed out to me as having developed a hole above my right knee; the pants that are also badly pilled from Spirit... more

  • Tar Bubbles by Dorien Grey 4/16/2015 2:53:07 AM
    When I lived in Los Angeles, I enjoyed going down to the La Brea Tar Pits to stare out over the still surface of the largest of the pools and watch gas bubbles slowly form little black igloos, linger a moment, and then more melt away than burst. They... more

  • Custodial by Dorien Grey 4/9/2015 3:00:37 AM
    When I was in college, my best friend, Russ Hogan, used to say, "Margason, you're custodial" after I would make yet another in an endless string of goofs/gaffs/mistakes. Much of the criticism was (and is) based on the fact that while I understand and... more
