Year Three

"It has always been one or three, never two, never stop at two - - three, or more, is best"
The past three years of blogging have been a wonderful experience for me. An engineer and a technocrat; discovering an ability to write, to conjure up images, to construct fantasies, and tell stories, and humor, and interact with a readership that has been more than generous and kind.

This year has been an odd mix of articles and stories - like the continuation (and perhaps the end) of the Consensual Stalker series, even a "reading" and a couple of very expressive songs, particularly Far Far. Also, I included a fanciful zany, but wonderful little song that was "given to me" that you can find in the sidebar, Love Letter To Japan - - - - The Bird And The Bee.

This past year, I have tried to add in some new approaches, like the music, even including a reading. The one that made it to the blog was a reading of a story from a collection of erotica, Curled in a Ball. I have recorded a couple of my own writings but they were never posted, perhaps in the coming year they will show up.

I had vowed to myself to write more this year but not surprised, I didn't. In fact I have the same number of posts in 2010 as in 2009. In an effort to rectify that, I intend a couple of collaborations in the coming year, and I have recently started participating in Flash Fiction Friday, a weekly discipline that I have enjoyed so far and plan to continue, and invite you to join.

Writing this blog has brought me great pleasure and satisfaction. I am flattered and humbled by the acceptance of my offerings and thank you all, each and every, one and many.

Year Two - - - Year One - - - In the Beginning 


  1. Dear David: Lucky me gets to be the first to offer my congratulations to you. Time goes by so fast...we've had so many happy and fruitful discussions about the writing and more. May the next year bring you much joy and pleasure and even more stories and ideas to share with us.

  10. David,

    I'm one of your more recent readers, but I have already become attached to reading your posts, and I am hoping that my can blog can become as long-lasting, and as well-written, thoughtful, and light-hearted as your own.

    Here's to three more years.

  11. Congrats on your anniversary. I hope to be able to continue as long as you have. I'm only a couple months in and have enjoyed reading your blog.

  12. I remember when I had my doubts about you. They are long, long gone. Thank you for sharing yourself with the world: I hope you can give many others what you've given me.
