  • Logic and Fun by Dorien Grey 12/11/2014 3:51:34 AM
    I really enjoy a good, rousing everything-blowing-up-and-falling-down-and-people-running-around-in-total-panic/confusion “end of the world as we know it" disaster film, or an imagination-stretching outer-space yarn outer-space yarn—as long as everyth... more

  • "I Hear the Mermen Singing...." by Dorien Grey 12/8/2014 4:06:08 AM
    We can’t change reality, but we can change our perception of it. I’ve been doing it since I was a child and it has served me very well. Our bodies are bound by the laws of physics and time and we are all but powerless to change them. But our minds ar... more

  • Mantras and Acorns by Dorien Grey 12/4/2014 3:25:06 AM
    Odd how something can be sitting quietly in some dimly-lit and dusty corner of your mind for years without giving it a conscious thought. It wasn't until this morning that I was conscious of a word my mind had been repeating in the softest of whisper... more

  • The Doll House by Dorien Grey 12/1/2014 3:59:04 AM
    I frequently start these blogs with only a general idea of a theme, and just let my fingers take over without much conscious direction. This one is a bit different in that I am not sure what approach to take with it. Writing of memories is always a s... more

  • Thanotophobia by Dorien Grey 11/27/2014 4:12:27 AM
    What? You know what "thanatophobia" means and you're still here? And what the hell are we talking about death for today? It’s Thanksgiving! Could there possibly be two less compatible topics? But the fact is that the greatest thing we can possibly gi... more

  • Moments and Times by Dorien Grey 11/24/2014 4:04:46 AM
    Each of us has indelible memories of events in our life which stand apart from all the others, and which shape and mold not only how we view the world, but who we are as individual human beings. I was thinking today of the moments and times ... more

  • Rules to Live Buy by Dorien Grey 11/20/2014 3:46:19 AM
    I am nothing if not a strict adherent to the set of rules I have painstakingly established for myself throughout my life. I fully acknowledge they may not work for everyone, but they are my rules applicable only to myself. First and foremost... more

  • Stranger in a Strange Land by Dorien Grey 11/17/2014 4:00:00 AM
    I was born to a long line of heterosexuals, going back to Adam and Eve. I was raised and nurtured by heterosexuals whom I loved deeply, and have lived among heterosexuals every day of my life. And yet I have never understood them, or felt I really be... more

  • "Should Read" Books by Brian C. Poole 11/13/2014 7:53:37 AM
    [This post originally appeared on] Are there books that you “should read?” That question has been bouncing around my brain recently. It’s not a new quandary, it’s certainly something I’ve thought about many times... more

  • The Learning Curve by Dorien Grey 11/13/2014 4:01:18 AM
    I know, I know, I too often despair (and one of the things about which I despair most is the mounting evidence that I'm turning into a grumpy old man), but let's face it…there's a lot to despair about. Remember courtesy? Good, old-fashioned ... more

  • Cassandra and Me by Dorien Grey 11/10/2014 4:02:56 AM
    I’ve always been fascinated by Greek mythology and identify strongly with some of it. I find the parallels between the prophetess Cassandra and myself, for example, to be downright eerie. Consider the uncanny similarities between us: Cassandra was th... more

  • Remembering the Future by Dorien Grey 11/6/2014 4:07:32 AM
    My mind is nothing if not...uh..."untethered," and it far-too-frequently just wanders off from the path I've chosen for it. Such is the case today. When I lived in L.A. and was with my partner, Ray, whenever we'd go out where there were jost... more

  • Beyond Understanding by Dorien Grey 11/3/2014 3:50:43 AM
    Please believe me when I say I sincerely do not understand how I have survived this long in a world that is all but incomprehensible to me. Technology. People. Instruction manuals. Myself. All are and have always been great mysteries to me. Just whe... more

  • Commercially Speaking by Dorien Grey 10/30/2014 2:43:08 AM
    I love TV commercials. One of my current favorites is, "Tell your doctor if you've been to a place where certain fungal infections are common." Like I'd know? And I'm impressed by the number of commercials--I see at least a dozen every night... more

  • Little Boxes by Dorien Grey 10/27/2014 3:10:05 AM
    I am a hoarder of memories. I keep them all in little boxes stored in a special Closet of Time in the attic of my mind. I carefully pack the good/happy memories in sturdy boxes wrapped in special mental wrapping paper tied with bows, the elaboratene... more

  • Ursula's World by Dorien Grey 10/23/2014 3:01:28 AM
    I've long ago given up wondering what triggers my thoughts and memories, but for some reason I found myself thinking of my friend Ursula. I'd never in my life met anyone like her before, nor have I since. And doubt I ever shall again. I met ... more

  • When "Then" Was "Now" by Dorien Grey 10/20/2014 2:59:35 AM
    Every now and then I like to go back to the letters I wrote to my parents so very, very long ago, when I was a wide-eyed kid stepping out into the big world for the first time as a sailor aboard the aircraft carrier USS Ticonderoga. I consider it a f... more

  • The Bouncing Ball by Dorien Grey 10/16/2014 3:00:49 AM
    While it is unlikely that you are of a sufficient age to remember when movie theaters, as part of their programs, would include an assortment of "short subjects" along with the feature film. "Sing Alongs", in which the audience was encouraged to...we... more

  • The Sound of Laughter by Dorien Grey 10/13/2014 3:08:27 AM
    Laughter is one of the greatest gifts bestowed on humankind. And while certain other animal are capable of it, laughter is part and parcel of what makes us human. The sound of laughter is often associated with our warmest memories. (A teacher once as... more
