    A Lunar Eclipse (And The Man On The Moon)

    A Lunar Eclipse (And The Man On The Moon)

    The boundary between knowledge and assumption can be so subtle that we can’t see the difference. But, an occasional perfectly-timed toss of a stone can hit that wall just right and shatter it.

    This is the story of Allister’s little cousin Benny and his perfectly timed toss.

    Candy From Strangers

    Candy From Strangers

    It's not always wise to take candy from strangers. But, who wants to always be wise? An adventure is an adventure. And Allister was never one to turn down an adventure.

    The Race To Awkward

    The Race To Awkward

    When two people first meet, it's always an unpredictable concoction of spontaneous connecting, random pausing and aimless floundering.

    And it was just like that on the fateful day when I first met Allister.

    An Attempt At Ending Fear

    An Attempt At Ending Fear

    When dealing with fear, whether it comes in the form of assumed fear (an assumed "haunted" house) or actual fear (an actual haunted house), it is always important to have a plan.

    This is the story of Allister's plan.

    To Fall In Love With A Tomato

    To Fall In Love With A Tomato

    Love is not a very easy concept to understand. In fact, one could argue that it's not meant to be understood at all. But....if one wanted to understand it, one could (as Allister did) start by trying to love a tomato.
