Upside and Downside of Online Business

Let us start with the bad news. People like to touch before they buy, and that is bad for an online business trying to get off the ground, quickly. Accentuating doodads on a saffron-dyed, “ultimate” nightwear ensemble might be appealing to the eye lost in the tendrils of a shiny iPad screen, but like a […]

For the Empire’s Throne (p2)

After such a long wait, For the Empire’s Throne (P2) is coming. I apologize to those who have waited so long, but my indecisions about the best way to bring it forth to the world have caused me to put it off, much to my pain and chagrin. Not absent from the delay has been […]

CARVING PATHS

I smoke but that is bad for my health. But I love and that is bad for my heart. And love makes me smoke, and smoke helps me to think and make circles in the air. I breathe, an easy thing. And breath makes a person hoard life and a yellowed-eyed Beast on the savannah […]

Trump: Will He End in Fire or in Ice?

Donald Trump walked onto the stage for the first time like an oxford-dressed bull in a china shop. If there is anything in particular his horns aimed at was everything, from trade deals to tariffs, to bad, bad Ford, China, ISIL, Muslims, and Mexicans.
