America’s Team: The Dallas Cowboys

I wrote a blog a few days ago about (in large part) God. I wrote about the cage match between us. I worried and fretted because I don’t blog about religion and because (particularly on the Internet) there are a LOT of people who just itch to find anyone who dares utter the word, much […]


Cage Match With God (Or: Getting Off The Schneid)

It’s been ten days since my last post—the semi-monumental 200th. The one I hated writing; the one about the death of a mentor and friend I never had the privilege and honor to meet. It’s been a long, strange, at times storming, at times sun-drenched, ten days. But it’s been a hellacious five years. Here’s […]


Facing Death. The Hardest Part Of Life?

On March 1, 2013, in (or...), In Memoriam, Non-Writing-Related, Personal Experience, by rsguthrie

I lost a friend yesterday who really was like a brother to me.

So the original choice for a blog name and, more importantly, domain, was none too swift, eh brau? Not with a little […]


Can’t We All Just Get Along?

On November 8, 2012, in AMERICA, Non-Writing-Related, Red White and Blue, by rsguthrie

The morning after the election I posted a photo and short note on Facebook. Several people called it a “blog” and I decided to post it here. I don’t do political postings unless they are A) Humorous B) Bipartisan and C) Both. So please don’t start any political whining or debating here. There are plenty […]


The Iceman May Cometh, But The Kidney Stone Passeth (If You’re Lucky)

I had cancer in 2002 and know what chronic pain can be like. It’s insidious in the way that it builds a sluice to slowly drain your will to live. You live with it twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, but you don’t measure time in anything close to weeks. While awake (which […]
