This thing that makes me happy

Love’s Garden in the time of Corona

These are tough times. We feel trapped. We feel alone. We miss the people we took for granted. We miss things we took for granted. We look back on our hopes and dreams. We wonder. We choose. We reflect.

And maybe we read.

How to live through tax season and tell of it


We’ve understood how it goes. Some of us report it. Some of us don’t. Some of us pay it. Some of us don’t.

How do you live through tax season and tell of it?

There’s only one way. Go vote out those who don’t pay their taxes despite occupying highest office in the USA.

Then return, and tell of it, smiling.

How to write a science fiction novel and even get wonderfully published!

Hi people, I want to introduce you to my friend Scott Coon, whose excellent sci-fi/futuristic novel Lost Helix is going to be available for purchase on May 18, 2020.

Here’s the story:

Stuck on an asteroid mining facility, DJ dreams of writing music. His dad is a corporate hacker and his best friend Paul prepares to escape to become a settler in a planet-wide land rush, but neither interests DJ.

When his dad goes missing, DJ finds a file containing evidence of a secret war of industrial sabotage, a file encrypted by his dad using DJ’s song Lost Helix. Caught in a crossfire of lies, DJ must find his father and the mother he never knew.

When the mining company sends Agent Coreman after DJ and his guitar, DJ and Paul escape the facility and make a run for civilization. Will DJ discover the truth before Coreman catches him?

So do check out Lost Helix and support Scott and sci-fi writing! It’s available for pre-order on Amazon, Barnes &Noble, i-tunes and kobo! Write a review, if you like, on
