Cigarette Pack - Write.No.Smoke.

.  .  . bedbugs, and garlic and [false religion] .  .  . Smoking stupefies a man, and makes him incapable of thinking or writing.”

The wisdom of a great writer. The words of the brilliant man who authored Faust: Goethe.   Newspaper (7-13-2015) Goethe's Least Favorite Things

I think he says it all .  .  . no smoke; just aromatic coffee to stimulate our literary language!

I don’t know about you, but, I kind of like a gentleman who speaks his mind clearly. Honesty can be pretty darn sexy.

The Grind (7-6-2015) Write. Good. Art.

I love gutsy writing, no matter how meek or quiet the tone may be. As long as it’s written in truth .  .  . it’s written from the gut.

My challenge: To tattoo every page with honesty, no matter how wobbly the imagery. To just keep marching forward with each letter, building it into a word, a sentence, a grammar of personal gospel.

The Grind - (6-22-2015) Ode to Dad on Father's Day

Many thanks to Ron Sickler for sharing the opening quote in this week’s The Grind. The moment I read his words, I knew that they echoed the ghost of my father.

To read more of Ron’s witty quips and quotes, check out his book, Out of My Mind, From My Heart & Off My Chest!

And in case you’re unfamiliar with Icebox or Zebra Cake, here’s a little sample to tempt your taste buds:  Icebox Cake

It was a staple in my mom’s summer dessert repertoire. Perfect for those hot, humid “dog days” of East Coast summer!

There’s even a Mocha Chocolate version of the original Icebox Cake. It’s far more decadent .  .  . perhaps best served as a winter dessert, accompanied by hot espresso or mulled wine.
