Alone Plague Journal and…

Days 10-12 of the Alone Plague Journal are now up. How would you like it? A text version? The podcast on my Podcasts page? Maybe through Podbean? It’s your choice, but if you could either follow me here, on social media, or even better, donate to my Ko-fi account so I can continue to maintain my parrot in kibble and seeds, that’d be swell.

Besides that, I finally figured out the problem with a video version of one of my stories. I’m taking the audio from my stories and posting it into a PowerPoint presentation which I convert to video, so I can also post to YouTube; but it’s a bit slower. Yet, if you’ve not yet heard my one story “Seeds of Time” you can click on the hyperlinked title and watch it now on YouTube.

Ehhh…what else? Why not a picture of Diva?

She looks innocent, but she’s plotting.

The Washroom Preacher – a weird encounter

Hello. I’m aiming for multiple updates this week, but first off, The Washroom Preacher – a true life encounter with a weird situation – is available either on the Podcasts page or as a text version. As well, here’s the link to the song mentioned if you need to listen to it afterwards.
This podcast is available on Podbean, iTunes or Google Play podcasts.

Alone Plague Journal – Days 8 and 9

Latest in the fictional serial journal of someone experiencing the COVID-19 pandemic in Calgary Alberta. The framing device is that this is from some kind of museum display 50 years in the future. Text version here or for audio, go to Podcasts (note, podcast also available on Podbean).

I also add some comments about the writing process…I’ve said it before, but sometimes perfectionism is the enemy of creativity. It’s a work in progress after all.

What else…oh, it’s Diva’s 16th birthday today. She’s getting all sorts of treats (nuts, seeds, fruit, veggies, birdie bread) and of course, lots of attention. And she’s being such a good girl. Look for yourself:

Man with bird on shoulder
“What…no kiss? Hmmph.”

Alone Plague Journal – Days 5-7

Today I threw in three days. Also, on the podcast ONLY I have a short note on the writing and creation of this journal and how it has changed from when I first started writing this fictional journal. The Podcasts page has the links to the text (with – once again – bonus songs to play if you prefer to read rather than listen).

Alone Plague Journal – Day 3 and 4

This was supposed to go up last week, but due to issues with Audacity (my recording software) I only managed to find a resolution Friday night. I will be hopefully updating this week with another story and even more of this serial series. Podcasts page has the vocal version, but if you want the text (which has the bonus songs that go with each day) it’s in the Library of Stories. Follow me here, on social media (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram) and on Podbean – note, my podcasts also should be searchable on Google Play, iTunes and others.

Thoughts on Mindfulness, ADHD and distraction

Last summer I did a video about my thoughts on mindfulness relating to ADHD and how cell phones distract us from the now. It’s available here and it weirdly enough covers a 4 Musketeers reference (hmm…maybe I should go a full goatee this coming summer instead of the break…either that or refresh my memory on fencing so I can embrace my swashbuckling side).

Twilight Walk In Nose Hill Park, Calgary

I took a bunch of photos when I went for a late evening ramble with a good friend through Nose Hill Park, Calgary. They’re on the Multimedia page, or click the hyperlink a few words back

Original Flash Fiction in Pictures

Virtual Afterlife in Multimedia is an original flash fiction (in pictures) of the future. A future where Humanity has created mind uploading to a virtual afterlife. Where it can be Heaven, Hell, or something in between. A new story by Evan Kayne. Enjoy!
