  • 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

  • Odd Man Out by Dorien Grey 4/6/2015 3:02:58 AM
    How very odd, we humans. On a genetic level, we are all but identical. On a mental and emotional level, no two of us are the same. And we each have only ourselves to use as the basis for comparison with others. Many, probably most, feel comfortable i... more

  • The Boggling of the Mind by Dorien Grey 3/30/2015 2:49:34 AM
    boggle (verb): to be astonished or overwhelmed when trying to imagine something My mind is so easily boggled. It only takes one thought, popping in from God-knows where for absolutely no determinable reason, to set me off. I had decided—tryi... more

  • "He Had a Hat!" by Dorien Grey 3/26/2015 2:55:39 AM
    Coca Cola, Colonel Sanders' "seventeen herbs and spices," and my Aunt Thyra's angel food cake all share one thing in common: no one else in the world knows its secret or can exactly duplicate it. The same is true with humor: each of us has our own re... more

  • Marshmallow Man by Dorien Grey 3/23/2015 3:38:32 AM
    The sleeve is not the best place to wear one's heart, yet many of us do. But one of the problems of leaving the heart so exposed is that it is difficult to shield it from almost any assault on the emotions. There are men of iron, and men of steel. Be... more

  • Chance, Coincidence, and Incredible Odds by Dorien Grey 3/19/2015 3:09:26 AM
    Life is a cosmic pinball machine; our past—our very existence—is the result of an infinite number of random coincidences and convergences of unrelated circumstances producing results with odds far greater than any lottery. Our every single action alt... more

  • Our Bloodiest War by David A. Schwinghammer 3/17/2015 7:31:14 AM
    Poor whites (rednecks) fought the Civil War for the South. Millions died or were wounded. And now they're doing it again, politically.... more

  • Spam and "Jabberwocky" by Dorien Grey 3/16/2015 2:54:33 AM
    It occurred to me, as I was flushing the latest crammed-full spam bucket from my computer, that spam is the absolute antithesis to Lewis Carroll's wonderful poem, Jabberwocky. Both are largely gibberish, but whereas Jabberwocky leaves one with a sens... more

  • "That Which I Should Have Done..." by Dorien Grey 3/9/2015 3:04:31 AM
    I have always been fascinated with Ivan Albrecht’s painting, “That Which I Should Have Done, I Did Not Do”—also known as “The Door,” in Chicago’s Art Institute. For some reason I relate strongly to the title. It's often far easier to acknowl... more

  • "They," "Them," and Me by Dorien Grey 3/5/2015 3:47:55 AM
    I've spent an inordinate amount of time, over the course of my life, pondering the riddle of how I can be a part of humanity and yet so often feel totally apart from it. I've come to the conclusion that I view my relation to other people...and specif... more

  • The Fine Line by Dorien Grey 3/2/2015 4:10:33 AM
    Odd how one picks up small bits and pieces of poetry, songs, sayings, etc. from God knows where and carries them throughout life. One of my favorites, probably from my grade school days when I was becoming aware of profundities (and yes, "pr... more

  • "This, too...." by Dorien Grey 2/26/2015 3:55:50 AM
    One of the wonders of being human is that while we, among all living creatures on earth, are aware of the concepts of future and past, stretching out endlessly before and behind us, we must walk between the two on the infinitely thin tightrope of "no... more

    Remember that old kids' rhyme, "Whether it's cold or whether it's hot, we will have weather, whether or not"? It was one of my first encounters with wordplay, and I've always remembered it. I love weather's unpredictability and delight in th... more
