Nothing Hurts

For the past few years I’ve been working in the operating room in a variety of hospitals with a wide spectrum of surgical specialties. People undergoing anesthesia remind me of intoxicated friends; whatever base emotions that exist are magnified, be it fear, anger or what have you. Recently my favorite patients to work with have...

Rock Bottom

Due to present circumstances I’ve gotten myself into, I’ve had more time for introspection than I’d like. Yes, I could take up knitting. Yes, I could run some bullshit marathon.

Food to Die for

The coffee splashed into my mug as he deftly poured, then set the half-filled pot back on the burner. I took a sip of the bitter brew while the arid heat wafted over my face. We both settled into our seats as I pulled out my recorder, switching it on. “So, Cerberus, people are dying... Continue Reading →


As the sun started to set, my apprehension heightened for the coming darkness. I knew that outside in the night would be a free for all of desperate people trying to hang on to some shred of hope that their families would be fed. I never had taken time before to put together a bug-out... Continue Reading →
