This past weekend was a classic good time for Football fans!  Even the Oregon Ducks got into post season bowl game!

The major bowl games were decided and the Professional Football league is getting down to who is going to be playing who in the next round of games which are huge money makers!

I love football and I’m not alone, even though many could care less! However, what I like most about Football is that it is a team sport. It takes a whole team working as one to accomplish their goal. It takes everyone, as there is no “I” in team!

That is quite a contrast to the way the world is turning these days. There are so many factions fighting with each other it’s hard to keep track of who is right and who is wrong!

In Football it’s simple, the best team wins on game day! I hope your team came through for you, if not there is next time!

So lets all pull for our teams and hope we all come out winners!

A few years ago at a writers conference held in the central Oregon coast town of Yachats, where I live, I listened to the late Ken Kesey, a frequent visitor to the area, tell a writer that this could be a hard place to write. “If you think you can sit there staring at the ocean for inspiration you’re wrong, it’s not out there, it’s in your head!” He was right; it is beautiful here in Lincoln County, the kind of beauty that makes concentrating on anything else tough and since hearing that insight, I’ve written at a desk facing a wall, no windows opening onto a ocean view, although I have one, but it’s worked. I’ve done, and do, different kinds of writing. As a freelance writer I’ve been a observational columnist, a humor columnist, a book and music reviewer for newspapers, magazines, and online. However, as a creative writer, my heart belongs to fiction. In that genre I do short stories, road adventure stories, musical adventure tales, and in current production, are three small novels. So really the purpose of this web site is to give you a glance of some of the things I’ve done, a preview of what’s coming, and hopefully, a view of what it’s like to be a writer living in a small town on the Oregon coast!
