Driving Mister Short


Out driving in the world the other day, I pulled up behind an apparent driverless 1980s Toyota Corolla. It drifted a little bit in the lane, from right to left and right again. As it wandered in the lane and continued its erratic speed, I could not see a driver behind the wheel; and there was my first sighting of those driverless cars we read in the news.

I changed lanes to pass, and as I pulled alongside the ancient car, I glanced over to my right. There was a driver behind the wheel – so short in the seat that his head was just below the top of the steering wheel!

Hi, and welcome to my blog. I am a published writer, poet, photographer, freelance editor, artist, and career analyst. Growing up in a bilingual family helped me foster my love of languages. I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in History and Political Science, a Bachelor of Arts degree in English, and Master of Arts in History. My short stories, poetry, and photographs have been published in the Emerald Coast Review (18th and 19th editions), newspapers, and in many other publications. I enjoy Pre-Code films, photography, music, travelling, history, reading, and living each day to the fullest in The Oasis. My publications include Engaged (an anthology of my poems), The Crowd of Turin, God of the Sea: A Short Book of Poetry by the Seashore, Grapes Suzette and Other Poetic Epicurean Delights, Gallery Night, Indigo Fantasy, The Green Gloves, Puppy Love, Supreme Theater, and others. I am currently working on an anthology of my short stories, including a roman à clef tale, and am in collaboration with another artist in writing a novel. My books are available through Amazon. Check them out. Buy them. Read them. Send me your thoughts. I look forward to hearing from you.
