WELCOME TO MY CEREBRAL VOMIT (BRAIN PUKE)!

This is where I write my opinions on current happenings, tell stories of things past and share some of my poetry. Read blog posts by the Cerebral Vomit authors on the ‘Ramblings‘ page and some of my poems on the ‘Rhyming Ramblings‘ page.

Cerebral Vomit is also a place for guest authors to share their voices – Contact Us to learn more.

Read at your own risk. I have strong opinions on many topicsĀ and I swear a lot.

Total Eclipse of the Heart

I have always loved the moon. I often gaze at it, wondering . . . so many things. Last year, the moon changed my life. Like the tides, the moon pushed and pulled me in directions that changed my perspective, my heart, my life. This is, of course, a love story. It...

Sex

I want to talk about sex. We all have it. It's one of the pleasures of being human. Sometimes it's not that great. And sometimes...sometimes it's amazing. I once had a lover who was the best sex I've ever had. He was a slight guy in build, not quite 5'9" - you would...

This year, Michele Wolf was the comedian to do the monologue at the annual White House Correspondent's Association dinner. She received immediate and harsh backlash for some of the things she said. And I have to admit, a few of her jokes were more vulgar...

A Pirate Looks at Forty

As my 40th winter nears an end, I find myself in a strange place in my life. In so many ways, the last year has been the absolute worst of my life. But in other ways, it has been the best year of my life. I have had moments of utter despair and moments of...

Alt Reality: Year One

When I began writing this "Alt Reality" series I couldn't have chosen a more fitting name. Exactly one year ago today, Donald Trump became the 45th President of the United States. I reflect on the last year, and the R.E.M. song 'It's the End of the World As We Know...

Last of the Free-Range Kids

As I get older, it seems like time moves faster. Or things happen faster now. Exponentially faster it seems. Besides being a reporter for a newspaper, I am also a freelance photographer. Last weekend I was shooting a wedding in an historic downtown hotel. The bride...
