Laid bare I am,
Words with which to play,
Fun, silly, some scary, mostly specs,
I wish to share them with you,
So, WELCOME, all, stay
Read, chat, and slay . . .
A bit about me —
I assemble words in ways that may interest you, or inspire you to write. Although my writings may contain certain elements of what would typically be found in certain genres, they may not always be easily pegged as belonging to one. Under My Content to the right of my blog site, I’ve created six different categories to define my posts, which may be snippets, vignettes, free verses, poems, or complete shorts.
Listed below is a description of each category. Please note that most of the posts in Short Stories, Bits & Pieces, and Poetry are a work of fiction. Names, characters, places, and incidents are the product of my imagination or are used fictitiously. Any resemblance to actual events, locales, or persons, living or dead, is coincidental.
Short Stories – various genres, which include horror, mainstream, and anything that crossbreeds with mainstream or a breed unto itself
Poetry – haiku, limericks, odes, free verse, and such
Bits & Pieces – sketches, strange or silly stuff, mostly humorous bits
Morsels – recipes (see Cuisinista* below)
Musings – opinions about current events or life in general
Reviews – rankings and/or brief summary about the movies and books (mostly fiction) I’ve consumed; as of 4/23/16, I’m referring to my reviews as blurts because they are more of shout-outs rather than analysis
As a voracious reader, I would be considered morbidly obese. While I consider books as the main entrees, then movies are desserts–and I have a hell of a sweet tooth. Too bad I cannot go back and share with you all the mountains of books I’ve read and all the reels that made me forget what’s real, but if I find that I’m not reading or viewing movies as much since I am now doing more writing, I will attempt to go back in time and write what I can recall.
*I also consider myself a Cuisinista (kwi-zeen-ista; a word I coined), one who has cooked for decades and keeps up with anything related to food.
How is that grain of wheat grown and sown and affect my bone? What is the trend, myth, or truth about our food sources? To keep up, I avail myself to the regular updates of EWG (Environmental Working Group–http://www.ewg.org/ ) CSPI (Center for Science in the Public Interest–http://www.cspinet.org/), and Dr. Mercola’s newsletters (http://www.mercola.com/), among others.
If you like seafood, I highly recommend http://www.seafoodwatch.org/ as a resource to guide you to choose the “cleanest” and safest seafood, given all the pollutants around us and the mercury level concern in our fish.
The recipes I created, or you may consider as modified (for what is original anymore), are based on my experiments, readings, and taste testings. Although I don’t mention them in my recipes, the ingredients I use are mostly organic. I also try to purchase products that are non-GMO.
Lastly, I have a day job, so I write as soon as I get home.
