Detours

Theoretically, a good read should also entertain.  In this category you’ll catch a little bit of my humor and possibly some of my soul.  I hope you enjoy both as I share random writings that have been published and scattered all over the planet via cyberspace and various print mediums.   If it makes you smile, feel free to share the love!
