"[My relationships were] like I was in these movies where the script was only half-written. When I’d get to the end of this half-script, the other actors wanted me to ad lib. But I had never gotten the hang of that. That’s why these movies were always box-office failures. Six of them in the past twenty years. I always blew the lines." ~ from my horrible first novel "Learn How To Pretend." (unpublished)(obviously)

About Me


Rick Robb
I’m a 54 year old writer and college instructor living in the American Southwest.

I’ve had this blog going on at least 4 years now. These days I post more in one day than I did in entire years in the past. I had my world fall apart in the past year and I’m desperately trying to deal with that. Some days this might look like some feel-good woo-woo blog, and others it might look like the most depressing shit in the universe. That’s because that’s what it is.
To steal a concept from my friend, Luke Storms over at CrashinglyBeautiful, this blog is analogous to what used to be known as a commonplace book

But other times I’m trying to share some health (mental/physical/psychological) advice that I’ve either found to be true, or I’m thinking seems sound.
