9:30am-around 1:00pm. Morning snacks, coffee, mimosas, good people, good poetry, prose, and music

Frederick and I and others, maybe you too? will be sounding off about what’s wrong, what’s left, and how America came to be at the most momentous period of recent history. The Election of 2020, what is to be done? Immigration. Revolution.

If you’ve ever written a poem, piece of prose, a story of protest, a letter to city hall, come and share it with us, no one cares about political correctness, please feel free to join us. And if you want to read something else, then that’s what freedom is all about, isn’t it?

You’re invited to come and listen and eat

Please RSVP “yes” or “no” is all we ask.

More information is on the way. Peace.

Todd Boyd

I survived as a carpenter, railroad worker, and a social studies teacher before I retired for good, so I am no longer tied down to the wage industrial complex tracks, like Sweet Sue, like sweet sue used to.

I define myself as an agnostically oriented spiritual believer in Hope and second, third, and fourth chances because there’s no future in believing only in your own fallibility, no matter how much attention/notoriety you get nor how smart you are.

I’ve been taken on some long rides down life’s road and I’ve driven some too.

Nowadays I write, get to make things up, and continue to try my literary hand as a self-published author, internet radio host, blogging, making some visual art, hosting both writing and open mic events, working on another novel, and enjoying whatever sports my body will let me do.

Self-published author of one novel (Marat, Untrue Loves, four chapbooks-(Shark Poems and Caroline’s Adeline Street and Other Poems), one book of short stories, (Allred’s Short Stories), one journal of personal history (The Election of 2012- A Year of Living Inside the Definition of Insanity). Most of these titles can be found on Amazon for practically nothing.

Some of my work can be found at and at my blog-
