I consolidated the stories about Fred.


...long live, Hill Blocks View. I miss writing. But the thought of one more round of "welcome backs", or obsessing over stats, or thinking of the clever response to a comment, or the obligation to read everyone else's blog... not so much. So I'll try and write. No pressure. If you feel the need to respond, you can email me. I like email. flipaul@yahoo.com

The Fable of the Author.

There once was a man who decided to be a writer. But, he wasn't sure what to write. And he couldn't find the time. The TV and the internet always called for his attention. He had dozens of book ideas floating around in his head, but he never started any of them.
   Soon he lost contact with his friends because he had to write, (even though he never did.) And his family didn't want to be around him because he was always miserable because he wasn't an author yet. And he started to drink because that's what writers do. Alone and miserable, he died.

And the moral of the story is: Don't be a writer, you'll end up DEAD!
