Preface

My writing experience began with the many essays I had to write while I was in school. One such essay I wrote, if memory serves, was about what it meant to be adopted. To my surprise, said essay was submitted for a Tennessee state-wide competition by Mrs. Geneva McDonald and came in third place for the region; I only found out about the competition and results when I was shown a newspaper article about it in the Wayne County newspaper. I wish I had a copy of the essay still.

Regardless, the contents of this book contain various writings of mine over the past. The oldest, Surfing Through the Mind, is a poem I wrote sometime around 1990 while I was sitting in a small bar in Chattahoochee, FL while nursing a beer as a rock band was playing live; I never did drink that beer. The newest piece, Happy 239th Birthday, was written July 4, 2015, as a timeline post on Facebook.

I chose to name this book after the aforementioned poem as a way for readers to have a gander at what goes on in my head when I write. A couple of the poems are song lyrics; I’ll let readers guess which ones those are. A majority of the articles within this book are short essays I had originally posted on a website called Bubblews that is no longer on the web. Readers will find a short story I wrote that has never been published as well as a chapter of an unfinished sci-fi/fantasy manuscript I’ve been working off and on since 1997.

The cover art is of my own design. I left the quite obvious imperfections as a way to reflect that my mind is not as neat and tidy as those who know me might believe. To be honest, I truly do not believe there really is a perfect mind; I am sure, however, there are several psychologists out there who would argue that I am quite wrong in my thinking. My cover art is a reminder that we all have our own imperfections; as a whole,
