“You take the blue pill – the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill – you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes.”
–Morpheus in The Matrix*
Rants and observations on everything from homesteading and self-reliant living in rural Maine, to current economic and political events, apocalypse survival, parenting, gaming, coping with bipolar disorder, the search for my biological parents and the writing process. I’ll also be posting short stories occasionally, or some excerpts from my Work-In-Progress for your critique.
The author of The Dark Chalice is stubbornly opinionated, passionately lazy, and a compulsive procrastinator. I don’t expect that blog posts will be submitted by deadline, or that I will even remember to write them. I have a BA in Psychology, which means I basically wasted forty or fifty (who’s counting?) grand. I’ve lived on both coasts and have driven across the United States twice, once in a VW Rabbit that was literally held together with duct tape and lost a wheel during a snowstorm in Nebraska. You’ll find that I’m keenly interested in politics, and lean strongly Libertarian.
The goal of this blog for me is just raw, unedited primal writing. I don’t know if writing is really a primal process but it should be. Blogging like this is like speaking in front of a large crowd with your pants around your ankles, but they say it’s good therapy. With luck I hope that something entertaining or amusing will come out of it for you. Lively debate and feedback is greatly appreciated so don’t be afraid to comment! Thanks for reading!
