They were all the people that had been born, transformed or self-willed into something that should have been bizarre, but was becoming less so. All she wanted to do was live an unnoticed life in her brownstone, working at the library and chasing down idiot cops who took her books on stakeouts.

In this collection of tales, I’ve pulled together an assortment of random thoughts and dreams, a smattering of memories and recollections, and a mixed bag of wry (but never cynical)... More > observations of life as it rolls out around me. Many of the stories are whimsical or fanciful, some nostalgic, some just funny…or so they seem to me. Most are current, drawn from events and occasions I’m witnessing now; a few are from bygone years. I make no claim to profound wisdom or even accurate recall in the telling of the tales.

Laughter, even of the sardonic kind, is good for us all. I hope you will enjoy these tales of a bemused bystander, faithfully trying to keep up with the passing parade.< Less
