Overdrive

There is a great app for electronic book and audiobook lovers that I haven’t written about yet. A couple times every month I find myself bringing it up in conversation and the people I’m talking with haven’t heard about it. So, here you go my small, but loyal, readership. If you love to borrow books […]

…unfinished…

The afternoon sun secretly opened the world and stood, clear eyed and fresh, out in the open for all to see. She took her hair and wrapped it around herself, covering her form from head to toe in the finest of spectral silk. And as she stood there, relishing her own comfort, the world, which […]

2015 Books

What a great year for reading! I read over 60 books last year, some great ones (as you’ll read later) and some good ones. I was fortunate to not have read any real duds last year! Let’s hope it stays like that for this year as well. The best and most important book I read […]

The corner

© 2016 Lyf Stolte You wouldn’t know it to look at it. That’s the whole point. I mean, if every person who looked at it saw what it really was it would lose it’s power. If it lost that the whole corner would be in jeopardy. You see, it was linked to several others who, […]

The Wind has an old/new experience…

A windy night has begun to lick at the alleyways. It’s tasting and considering the delicacies. As it whorls around the city, lapping up alley after alley, the flavors tickle it and send it reeling faster and faster. But wait, there’s something different here. The wind hasn’t tasted this scent before. Oh, wait, it has, […]

HepC Treatment update…

I HAVE FINISHED!!!! That’s right. Eighty-four days/pills later and I have finished my third round of treatment for Hepatitis C. It’s quite amazing really. During the whole run I didn’t experience even a fraction of the side effects I did the last 2 times. In fact, I was able to live my life completely normally […]

No Vacancy

© 2015 Lyf Stolte JOHN If I wanted to, he’d be dead. No questions. Just like that. Can’t mess with me and not receive some kind of punishment. GEORGE Don’t think of it as punishment. That’s your first problem. JOHN But that’s what it will be. GEORGE No no no no…you got this all wrong. […]

Greg “Iggy” Spoon

March 18th, 1968 – March 17th, 2015 Iggy, aka Greg Spoon, was amazing. I wanted to write this sooner, but it didn’t feel right. I can’t explain why. Maybe it was because I wasn’t ready. Maybe it was because I was afraid I wouldn’t do him justice. I think though it’s because I am finally […]

February and March writing update..

The writing continues… It hasn’t been an easy month, so I’m posting the badge on this post more as a goal I reached for than as something accomplished. The post that she wrote is more about writing daily than it is about word counts altogether. That having been said, I just want to share with […]

Third time’s a charm!

It’s been 8 years since my last round of treatment, and I’m kind of nervous. My journey with Hepatitis C began many years ago during the Red Cross Blood Scandal, and now it could be coming to an end. Tonight I start my third round of treatment in 10 years. This time the combination therapy […]
