Policing Without Killing: Science or Science Fiction by Matthew Poole

I had a dream last night. I was sitting in a room with a group of people for what seemed to be some type of debrief or grief counselling group that involved people whose family members were victims of a recent active shooter. Four things stuck out in detail. 1. There was a man leadingContinue reading “Policing Without Killing: Science or Science Fiction by Matthew Poole”

Life is Freaking Long. #WritingCommunity #FridayFeeling

I was out working today on a new project and I looked around as I was sitting in traffic. There was a man riding a motorcycle in slacks and dress shoes in front of me, like a cowboy on a work release program, it didn’t quiet fit. I was struck with the thought, we wasteContinue reading “Life is Freaking Long. #WritingCommunity #FridayFeeling”
