Two New Articles By Your Humble(ish) Moonsthoughts Guy 1

Here are a pair of articles (unrelated to each other) that I’ve written recently: One link is to an article I wrote for NapeNaSi.com, the website/blog of a mission group I’m part of, and the other is an article for theodysseyonline about zombie movies, us, and social media. I hope you’ll take the time to ...

Dear David: An Open Letter To My Little Brother 12

Dear David, Since you recently had a birthday, and now get to stare down the barrel of the big Five-Oh for a year, I thought I’d take a moment on the occasion of my 51st birthday to pass on a few words of wisdom regarding what is arguably the most horrific of all birthdays. First ...

On Lost Friends and Heroes – Part Three

Hey all, I’m posting a link to my latest article in the Odyssey. It’s the third (and final) part of my “On Lost Friends and Heroes” series. I hope you’ll take the time to check it out. If you like it, or it makes you think, please think about sharing it. As always, thanks for ...

It’s the Little Things That Matter: At Least That’s What I Tell Jess 6

It's the Little Things That Matter: At Least That's What I Tell Jess
Warning: the following post contains innuendo, double entendre, tasteless humor, and disco music references. Proceed at your own risk. I often wonder how I got so lucky with my wife, the exceptional and clearly-out-of-my-league Jess. Not so much about how I got her (I really believe that was God’s doing, with an assist from alcohol), ...

On Lost Friends and Heroes – Part One

Hey all, here’s a link to my latest article for the Odyssey. It’s about a tragedy that occurred during my time in a rescue squadron. This was the hardest thing I’ve ever written, and may be the most important, as well (not that anything I’ve ever written has ever been important, really). Anyway, I won’t ...

I’m Still Here!

In case you’ve missed me (and why wouldn’t you?), or have been wondering why I haven’t posted anything lately, I’ve recently started writing for theodysseyonline.com. I’m still going to be writing exclusively for this blog too, I’ve just been really busy. Anyway, if you’re just needing a little dose of moonsthoughts in a slightly different ...

And Now . . . One for My Sweetie: Remember, Romance is Not My Forte 6

And Now . . . One for My Sweetie: Remember, Romance is Not My Forte
This Saturday is June 4th. It marks the 22nd anniversary of my marriage to the lovely and all-round-best-woman-on-earth, Jess, and the beginning of the 23rd year of her life sentence. Through it all, she has never complained, never whined, never asked for anything other than my love (and a new dog every once in a ...

The United Colonies of Corporate America

There is a sentiment that often pops up in a meme posted by veterans, that says something along the lines of “I swore an oath to defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic. That oath has no expiration date.” Although, it is normally posted by my more right-leaning brethren, ...

What’s Wrong with Me? A Little Overdue Self-Examination 2

There is an anecdote, perhaps apocryphal, that G.K. Chesterton once responded to the question, “What is wrong with the world?” from The Times of London with the answer, “I am.” Now, Chesterton was a very, very smart writer, critic, and theologian, so who am I to question him? However, he died in 1936, and the ...
