Trust Machines: Good to See You

Suzanne sat surrounded by computer interface devices that she really wished that she didn't need. She drew on her old Wacom pad, using her left hand to monitor her work on a tactile output pad. On occasion, she would type on an ordinary keyboard or run a hand over her braille output pad. Brian softly padded up to her room, intent on surprising her. She knew that he had recently been discharged from the army, but didn't really believe that he would come back to see her. She had been disappointed by so many of her friends. After that pack of dogs tore her limb from limb and literally chewed her face off, her friends somehow couldn't relate to her anymore. Or, more accurately, she could no longer go out with them and participate in the activities that she used to enjoy. Sure, they came to visit from time to time, but it was more a duty than an enjoyable activity for them. She heard him walk softly through the door and turned her mangled eyeless face toward him. "Suzanne?"

Trust Machines -- Don't Steal My Boyfriend

Don't Steal My Boyfriend A Trust Machines story I was discussing another story when an offhand comment made this one come to mind.  Yes, my muse has ADD.  And that's why I have way too many unfinished stories on my hard drive. Anyhow, I hope everyone enjoys this little bit of fluff. "I can't believe she stole my boyfriend just before the junior/senior prom!" "That's what little sisters do.  They 'borrow' stuff from their big sisters." "But... My boyfriend!" "You already have another.  It's not like you don't have dozens of boys sniffing after you like so many dogs." "The challenges of being beautiful," she said with her nose in the ai

My Bio
I am a photographer, programmer, engineer, writer, and all around nerd. I do some photo-manipulation, but not a whole lot. I'm just starting to learn how to draw. Wish me luck :)

I was born in a semi-rural area south of Detroit. Since we found ourselves going to some of the nicer parts of Michigan whenever we could, we decided to move up to the Cadillac area. I can't imagine ever moving back to the city.

We live on a small ten acre parcel about a quarter mile from the Manistee National Forest. We share our house with our furred friends, and our property with various wild and domesticated animals.

I love water, the great outdoors, and technology. Trying to integrate all of that together is an interesting challenge.

Merry Christmas everyone!  And Happy Holidays!  Or whatever traditions you follow. I just posted a Christmas special -- a little mushier than I have been posting.  Over the next few weeks or months, I'll be copying some of my other work here.  I real...

Devious Journal Entry

I haven't added much in the past few years.  I need to go through my many gigabytes of photos and pick more out.  But I kinda want to wait until I get a better Internet connection.  Lake County, Michigan is a huge Internet desert. Meanwhile, I'm trying to figure out how to post text with HTML tags and separate things into folders.  The interface seems to have changed. So I'll post some science fiction and maybe some urban fantasy fairly soon.  I hope.  It depends on how much the interface aggravates me.

Back from da U.P.

Back from da U.P.

We took a family trip to Michigan's Upper Peninsula.  I have a lot of wonderful childhood memories from that area, and it was wonderful to share it with the kids. Now, I am sorting through several gigabytes of photos and video.  We took a tour to a copper mine and the videos came out better than I thought they would. I'll be posting things as I sort through them.

Sorry, but Kajm is wrong. Every single thing I said to him about the corruption and racism of our prison system and police is EXACTLY reality, and I backed up each and every statement I made with multiple academic links and data sheets that he ignored.

you know this isn't tumblr DM everyone can see your post

Don't try to drag me into your trolling. I happen to know that Kajm is exactly correct in this case.

KajmHobbyist Writer

I see it.


'multiple' blah blah blah- say did you know that Phrenology was developed as scientific back-up to 'prove' slavery was correct?


Sorry he came after you.

eh. No biggie. It's not your fault, anyhow. He wouldn't know who I was if I hadn't replied to your post.


I sometimes feed the trolls just to provide a counter argument. They will never change, but others might have an open enough mind to read both sides.
