About

Talk to me directly: somebadplankton at gmail.com

If there’s a topic you want me to write about, a story you want me to tell, or a sadness you want to share, let me know. I take commissions on photographs, poems, blog posts, short stories, and essays. Will work for reimbursement. Will work for chocolate. Might work for good fried chicken.

Please cite me when you steal my shit. Because if it’s on this site, I made it. Except that one quote from George Elliot; I borrowed that.


Personally, I enjoy reading.

I really enjoy nachos, daisies, gnomes, watching people fail at hackysack, flustering rude people, and commiserating with sad, wretched poor souls.

I really, really enjoy making things.

    jeeze Me … a lot of people like you! i wish that many people liked me. i have maybe 10 sometimes.

    sometimes i feel like i’m a really tiny fish … like a little minnow … inside the aquarium at the sarasota airport. i’m surprised i haven’t been eaten yet! but i perservere. the other day they dumped a big goat fish into the tank and a little minnie came in with it. we swim around together … it’s nice to have friends. we sit behind this big rock and laugh at that big luger fish that swims by. youj draw really good! thanks for telling me you don’t have classic beauty thereby revealing to me that you are beautiful. err ….. am i not getting something? ks

    Hey, thanks for visiting my blog. I came here to sight-see and I love, love, love your work. You are so talented. I don’t know if I’ll be able to send you good fried chicken from across the ocean but when I find a way, I’ll send you some work to do for me.

    Keep it up.

      That’s nice of you to say.

      I have a drawing tablet that I use. I also have a painting software on my computer; I draw/write in that. I also use Photoshop for cleaner brush pixel lines in detailed areas.

      It’s hard to say what my favorite piece is as I’m not sure the answer would be the same tomorrow. I wrote a short essay about a letter my father sent me. I think that’s my favorite. I haven’t posted it here, because it’s still a bit too painful. But email me if you’d like a read. But, I made french bread from Julia Child’s recipe that came out perfectly. I’m pretty darn proud of that too.

        Yes, the work is everywhere, isn’t it? There is so much joy in creation. Cooking food is one of my creative favourites too. By the way, I have been looking at your blog on and off for a couple of years now and I really like the tone of what you have going here. I’m not a very internet kind of person, i.e., I don’t have a smart phone and I dip in only when I feel like it, I’m shit house at networking and all that media savvy stuff but I like returning to your stuff because it’s quality, and across the world on another hemisphere in a cool country that also starts and ends with A (and I mean Alaska actually, ‘cos I think it’s a country in it’s own right really, never mind the old U.S of All) is a fellow sensitive soul whose work I really enjoy. You have a genuine follower in me, not a blog hopper or someone just trying to get exposure. I get a sense of something deep that I like. I think you rock.

        Over and out from Australia! Bless x

          I … really? Me? Thank you. I was kind of having a bad day, and this made me feel a little bit more worthy.
          I sometimes worry that I’m unsustainable on my own. I think that might in part because of technology. But, regardless, I’ll endeavor to keep it up.

    Thanks for liking my post from last week! I’m not a fan of chocolate, but your GIFs are pretty cool. (If that made any sense.)
    Anyway, I really enjoy making things too, so thanks for the encouragement, and keep creating!

    I was ruminating on many of these things yesterday. It isn’t your fault at all. Perhaps there is more to ruminate. I am like a bull.

    I too enjoy commiserating with sad, wretched poor souls. Your words are unique and delayed. My hope is that you will escape from your difficult situation and find truth. Until then, you write beautifully.

    I went down the coast (of Victoria) to Logan’s beach where the southern right whales calve. One of the whales game to the surface and blew a great plume of water and gas and stuff into the air and then it turned upside down and waved its tail in the air and disappeared. I think it must have eaten some really bad plankton.

    Thank you for stopping by and liking “Stargazing”. You have a very interesting About page. Actually, I think you are a good plankton masquerading as a “bad” one. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Glad you stumbled upon my little nutty blog, so you work for chocolate….I have a bunch of gardening to do and could use some help. Itยดs reaching the 90ยดs degrees here in Spain and I do have chocolate cookies so the offer is out. But be quick cause the chocolate and so much heat….well it melts. Gonna stick around and drop by you once in a while in my stalker mode if you donยดt mind.

      I’ll take that compliment. It really depends on the day, the time, and circumstance. I suppose, to answer your question, in general, I like to write bawdy songs the most. Sadly, I don’t post those here.
