Meet Me In 2020

                     

       

         

                                       Written By: F. John Surells

 

 

            Alright, I guess that this time I may have gone too far – but maybe not. And anyway, no matter what I say here, those “rule benders” who’ve been sanctioned to say whatever they darn well please will continue to say and write whatever they darn well please. But who gave the “rule benders” a free hand to do, say, and write whatever…

It's A Debatable 2016

                  

 

                                      Written By: R. F. Husnik

 

 

            It was another super-duper Tuesday, and of course both the writer’s friends and enemies had previously demanded his “take” on where the political situation in America was “at” just now. So, to answer them, he’d begun by penning a nonsense paragraph which had used all the candidate’s last names in jest. But after he’d read what he’d written, although he’d…

ROAD EXCURSIONS:  THE DEMISE OF KENNY, AND THE DILEMMAS OF LAUREN

 

                                                   Written By: Rashon Leyf

 

 

            Well, it’s happened. A very sad, but not unexpected event has recently occurred in our city. Kenny Asher, while intoxicated, has driven his girlfriend’s (Lauren Havess) antique car off a north side embankment, and has either died from injuries sustained during the car’s subsequent descent into…

                                                            A TRIBUTE TO RALPH

 

                                                   Written By: Rashon Leyf

 

 

            It’s time for me to write about my greatest friend (except of course for my girlfriend

Amber). His name is Ralph Hawk, and there are so many things I could rightfully say about him. Yet, probably the best tribute I can pay him, is to simply say that he’s done (and…

We Have No Societal Darlings Here

 

Written By: Ralph Hawk

 

 

            I think most mortals will agree that whenever one begins to do a task, the repetition of which

 

will now surely become a part of that one’s life for some length of time, that one will “learn”

 

how to complete that task more easily, and most likely more efficiently with each performance of it.

 

And that’s certainly been the case…

Captured (Part Three)

Written By:  Pierce Gates and Dana Gerous

 

                PIERCE GATES SPEAKS:  First of all, let me apologize for “dragging out” my answer to F.

 

John Surells “Capturings.” When I said I’d respond to that well-written piece, I had no idea my retort

 

would necessitate three submissions. And, probably I could, and perhaps should have posted it as

 

four. Nevertheless, I wish to end with three,…

Captured (Part Two)

 

                                       Written By: Pierce Gates

 

 

            In the first installment of this posting, I promised I’d return and tell, as they say, “the rest of

 

the story.” Well, here it is, though I fear not many will believe it. Some may think I’m simply

 

expressing “every man’s dream” here, while others, and especially my ex-wife, may be angered and

 

embarrassed by this disclosure. And…

Captured (Part One)

 

                                       Written By: Pierce Gates

 

 

            Recently I promised F. John Surells I’d “answer” his piece entitled “Capturings” if indeed it

 

was ever published on the internet. Well, here I am, keeping that promise. But I’ve learned that my

 

answer can’t be crafted as one single entity.

 

            And, I fear it consists of miscellaneous musings, some of which, it shouldn’t…

Joe's Reaction To Mona Lisa: An Excerpt From Chapter 9 Of "The Same Tapes"

Italian woman, your portrait hangs in my mind as a lantern in a lighthouse. Indeed the

 

“keeper” should have arrived there in the waning daylight then to “turn on” the great lights which

 

may have guided seafarers who traversed upon nearby waters as the sun’s supplied light was

 

removed by night’s expected darkness. But should he have arrived late, through whatever reason,

 

valid or not, he may have grasped the lantern then to grant…

Words From F. John Surells





    I've always felt that "The Same Tapes" is a very significant book.  And though you may not believe this, the fact that it was "produced" by one of our own here - that is, those of us who now live near this city's river - is not my motivating or truthful reason for that opinion.  



    I simply find it to be a source of solace.  But oh, don't take that incorrectly!  Certainly it's no Bible, or great…

Jane's Initial Analysis

Chapter 2

 

JANE’S INITIAL ANALYSIS

 

Written by Jane Doer

 

 

                Well, the task is completed! I’ve finished typing Joe’s spoken words, needing, as you might

 

expect, to employ the “rewind” of the tape deck time and time again, simply because I can’t type as

 

fast as Joe can speak! I corrected whatever errors I found in the…

S-P and J



By: F. John Surells



Whenever I’ve sought conclusions, I’ve found that by immersing myself amidst all that’s already occurred, I’ve been able to deduce what still should happen. And I’ve learned that self-pity and jealousy are the two greatest sins, and not because of any immediate effects they may cause, after all they’re “inactive” transgressions, but rather because of the often tragic, and sometimes fatal activities they may eventually engender.

And I’ve come to…

THE MAN FROM THE GREEN CITY

  

                It’s almost voting time. So, here’s my vote for those who aren’t concerned with the Joneses, and who don’t

 

feel they need to follow them. And here’s my endorsement of those who don’t particularly care about how much money

 

the people down the street possess, or whether those people are seeking some sort of public office, or whether they’re

 

basically liberal or conservative.

 

                And…

RFH REFUSES TO REPENT

                The greatest thing about my snobbishness is that I’ve always been really real! And my modesty has always overwhelmed almost everyone! And if you thought it was time for me to make personal statements, your wish has been granted. And wherever I’ve been, and whatever I’ve done, has always, in my mind at least, been for the hopeful good of mankind.  

                But chaos usually follows one wherever one goes, and in whatever one does. Still, in…

DOG BARKING IN THE DISTANCE

Ralph Hawk speaks: A few weeks ago I promised you what I consider a well written chapter from my friend F. John Surells.   

 

                       DOG BARKING IN THE DISTANCE

    

                               Written By:  F. John Surells



 Recently, in the evening of a mid-week summer day, I sat at home alone with certain

windows opened, and attempted to compose an essay, or whatever one might wish to term one’s

analysis of the words of…

AN UPDATE FROM RALPH HAWK



Since I last spoke to you, I've been under a constant barrage of criticism and negativity. And if that statement seems to beg your sympathy, believe me it's real purpose is only the proclamation of life as I find it today; that is, how I am living now with those who are my artistic comrades and equals here on the north bank of our city's river.



And I have mammoth responsiblities here. I'm the de facto leader of a large (and still growing) entourage of creative minded…
