Slow Down for Some Star Gazing & Anchors Away Cocktail

      Star light star bright, how many stars can I see tonight. Is a walk in store tonight? I don't too often run into pure writers block, It's like talking, I am rarely without a word, or thought. I have opinions, I have concepts, Im a dreamer, a poet, an artist, so ideas just aren't an issue for me. Yet every once in a while it hits, and nothing. Either I have thought it, shared it, told it before. Everything seems to start to sound alike or it just does not make sense.

Jesus and the Lepers

By Jack Sheedy

I’m home, ill, today. Why else would I be typing a blog on a Tuesday afternoon while the rest of the world is at work.

I caught something. I came down with it on Sunday, was a bit of a mope around the house yesterday (Labor Day – isn’t that nice), and now, today, I’m at home with my dog, Willie, and he’s not quite understanding this disruption in his usual routine. He seems rather put off by my presence, like I’m interfering with some prearranged schedule of doggie events.
