Originally written in October of 2010. This is an attempt at an original story about Superman. Hopefully, this won’t get me into too much trouble with DC Comics, who owns Superman and all related characters. I also hope I don’t get into too much trouble with other comic book geeks.

I Am a Seed

I once spent a lot of time sitting in a classroom full of first graders. Because of this fact, I found myself relearning a lot of things I've actually known for 30 years.

It's still fairly dark, but I know my way around the place … Continue reading Freaking Out

School's out. The college town in which I live is devoid of students which opens up a … Continue reading Autumn: A Love Letter

Life Story: Chapter Thirteen

Welcome to a series of stories that basically make up my autobiography. It’s not entirely thorough, but I’ll do the best I can with the memories locked away inside my head. Could be therapeutic for me. Could be humorous for you. Either way, enjoy… Previously on Life Story... We lived in an apartment in Roanoke … Continue reading Life Story: Chapter Thirteen
