A History of Blogs and Imperfection

By C. E. Poley                   This is not really about a history of blogs. My father showed me how to express my curiosity about technology and writing at a young age. I started my first blog when I was 12. It was an HTML blog, all built in Notepad on our Windows 98 computer in the basement of a red ranch house in northern New Jersey. Dad helped me build it with some hands on experience and an HTML instruction book. The Dover Weekly News began. The online “newspaper” was based on the computer itself, which acted […]

Veteran’s Day: Honoring Donald Edward Remus

This is my grandfather during World War II. He flew planes into the battlefields to give relief and pick up wounded soldiers. Today he is 91 years old, and he is one of the most wonderful men I have ever known. I am proud to be his granddaughter, and I am so proud of the stand he took when the world was crumbling and he knew something needed to be done. To my dear grandfather and all of the other men and women who have sacrificed themselves in history for the good of this nation, I salute you. Thank you […]

It’s That Time of Year

The time of year of for many cups of herbal tea, all day long, to combat the slight chill in our one-bedroom apartment on Parkside. I can’t wait for autumn; I shall take the most delightful pictures to share with you when the leaves have turned. For now, dream of warm scented steam and hot ceramic in your hands. Pull a loved one close in the cool night. Corissa HauryRidiculous, curious, most likely delirious. I love a great story, whether it comes in the form of words or visual stimuli.

Peace at Table Rock

In a single day; I rested my heart on the river, and spurred it up the mountainside; I hid in deep caves and saw the wide open; I saw a mountain range from a bird’s-eye view and strained my neck upward to see its summit; I was grounded on shallow rock beds and paddled through deep, black waters; I climbed a mountain staircase barefoot and came down shod; Peace is such a very rare thing in this world. Real, heart-stopping peace that fills you with itself so your mind cannot wander to the anxieties of the world and ancient woes. […]

Vignettes From City Life #1

I was there because I am the worst vegetarian of all time. I call myself a “baconetarian” every once in a while to crack a joke to friends when they hear me order pizza with bacon on it, and afterward I explain why I just can’t seem to give up that delicious, succulent bacon. Bacon’s the only thing that used to have legs I can stand to eat. My partner and I eat tuna and haddock also, it’s true; but the word “pescatarian” sounds even worse than baconetarian if you ask me so we don’t call ourselves that. He doesn’t eat […]

polaroid 6/15/13

Today was an adventure. It mainly consisted of excellent conversations and enjoyment of the summer sun. Part of the day involved the use of a lucky $4 Polaroid camera I discovered at Goodwill. We went to Pinecone & Chickadee and I found some black and white film. This is one of the photos I took and then scanned. I hope you enjoy it.
