Perfectly Imperfect Writings. And Stuff.

About Mark

Why did I create this blog? As far back as a young boy in England, I have lived with the unexplainable desire to write things down; to record them.

I wrote about the loud vampires that lived next door. I wrote about the 3-legged dog that shared my flat with myself, my happily bearded uncle and the gypsies that roamed in and out of London. I wrote about how the vampire neighbors kept us up all night, bumping around and making dangerous noises. I wrote about the night I was walking home through the woods and in the darkness, I stumbled upon a large bat; a bat that was as big as a carriage. The bat was indeed friendly and with one spindly wing, he motioned me on his back for a night ride above the city streets. In the cool night air mixed with chimney smoke, the velvety black bat and I flapped quietly above both the drunken and the sainted souls below us sleeping soundly in their candle lit cottages.

Actually……I’m just a man from Cook Street in  Lexington.

And this is where I’ll put the things that I write.

I am employed full time as an RN for 32 years. Before medicine I majored briefly in journalism.  But writing  didn’t pay the money I wanted in my life, so I changed majors to medicine. As I’ve aged, I’ve went back to my first love of writing.

So here is where I’ve decided my final resting place for some of these writings will go.

Do they have value? Will this blog change the world?

Probably not.

But like an article on the causes of intractable diarrhea….

They are interesting.
