Riffs in English

by Gordon MacDiarmid




Life is ridiculous.

While I was writing The Science Of Magic I wouldn't have believed that malignant toad would have become President. TSOM might have had a different tone.

Well, it's been 2 years since that last entry and life has become even more ridiculous. My spine is trying to pinch the bundles of nerves that lets me walk, write and even scratch my nose. It's succeeding.

The thoughts haven't stopped but my ability to record them has seriously decreased. Desert Riffs is my only current outlet for outrage.

I lost the ability to play the guitar and keyboards, because of the injuries to my spine. That left me with only my voice for music.

Next month I find out if this mass of tissue growing in my throat is malignant or not.

I can't help but think of Job, but I'm still not a believer.


It's been a long time since I've been back here. Life has a way of knocking one off ones bicycle, using a hit-and-run driver; and well things can get pretty messed up.

So bear with me while I try to remember HTML and how this all works.

Desert Riffs is my blog, a sort of inevitable step for a big-mouth like me. The thing started with the Kitzmiller piece; I was so outraged by the idea that I couldn't keep silent. The rest just fell into place. I'll be cross-posting these pieces to both places, so take your pick.

Oh well It's been a while since I had time for this. The New Rantings are all on the blog at Desert Riffs.
