A True Saint

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “A True Saint.” In 300 years, if you were to be named the patron saint of X, what would you like X to be? Places, activities, objects — all are fair game.

I’d like to be the saint of the online diary. I’ve been doing it long enough and I have a track record to serve as a pretty good example of how to do it.

Last year I was writing about the house I was born in. What’s changed is I write 150-300 words now instead of lexicon lengths of 500 or more in the past. I also use quick posting tools tools like Flickr with IFTTT to create WordPress content. This is sometimes more exciting to me than writing.

My views on films and life are usually headstrong and often 'left of center' on movies and life, but I have respect for the other side. I married my high-desert princess (now my queen).
